6-Strand Matthew Walker Knot (MWK6)

FF -- 6 Strand Matthew Walker Knot

The Matthew Walker Knot (MWK) is a great knot to use as a transition between a flogger’s handle and the falls.  It is often the first knot I tie in a project; then I build the handle from it in one direction and the falls in the other direction.  Properly tied, the Matthew Walker Knot is very attractive and extremely stable.

This tutorial is tying a 6-strand MWK, but the technique is the same for any number of strands four or more.  I have a separate tutorial that demonstrates the technique for 4 ,5 ,6 strands using paracord so that you can follow the colors and see what is happening a little more easily.
