Randy – I hope these photos help. They are the back of baby takadai. It’s a little hard to see because my yarn is white, but there is a lark’s head knot around the knot at the top of the photo (which is all the fibers tied together). The lark’s head knot is made from the cord that was thread thru the hole in the part that turns at the bottom. As you braid, you can turn that which will advance the point of braiding closer to the Torri.
