ATC card swap. Lately I have been experimenting with different kinds of mizuhiki knots. I learned that it takes a lot of patience at first to get he knot started and it gets easier once the initial knot is made. Adding the additional cords became easier. The knot is an Abalone shell knot also known as the Josephine knot or good luck knot. For reference, I used a little booklet published by Yasutomo, writted by Karen Thomas. As I was forming the knot, I became intrigued at how it slowly takes shape. To make this knot I used, 6 black and 2 gold mizuhiki cords.
