Dear All,

This is my first post to the forum. So, I'm not sure that this is the correct place or if it will be of interest (and even if I will succeed with images).

Some time ago I was behind braiding a bracelet with a gaucho braid using a single strand similar to a Nantucket sailor bracelet but with 2o 2u scheme. I did not found instructions on the web but I found myself the way to tie. In fact what I learned how to convert any square turk head (or derived) in to a gaucho braid. Here I will try to explain what I do in the simplest case (from a 3L turk head).

The way to proceed in the conversion from a 3L turk head to a 5L gaucho braid depends on how the turk head is started.

In this post I will explain the case that I usually proceed:





Until finishing the 3L turk head



At this point, the last pass can be seen as a 1under 2over. Now I just follow by passing 1u 2o ...







until the end ...



Now it is just time to finish by 2u 2o ...




Until the end ...



So it is finished ...

As mentioned, I have not seen this method anywhere. I hope it can be useful. I plan to send the second case shortly.

Thanks for reading and feedback...

Very nice Carlos.  It looks like the Spanish Ring Knot
