The crown sennit is a decorative, continuous series of crown knots that can be used alone or to cover another line or object. Results vary because you can change the number of strands and colors as well as the direction of the strands and endings.
This crown sennit is a five-stranded, right-turned (counterclockwise, as viewed from above) crown sennit covering a laid nylon line. The crown sennit effect is accomplished by casting a series of crown knots working from the bitter end of the core line toward the working part.
A. Select five strands for the sennit cover. Allow 4 inches per strand to cover 1 inch of 3/8-inch line. Secure the strands to the end of the core line with a twice- or thrice-turned sack knot. Heat cut and melt them together.
B., C. and D. Start the first series of five tucks (crowns to the left), and pull tight.
E. Repeat this series of five tucks, pulling them tightly, for as many times as you need to cover the desired core length. To finish, heat melt each strand.
