This is continuation of article Violin clef / Treble clef (knot). I am interested in shibari art alias nawa-shibari. That is a reason why I write an article which describes how we can use rope for decorative purposes on human body.
My first article is about violin clef knot alias treble clef knot and his variations. 9 usefull knots used instead The Munder Hitch.

OVER DIRECT single
You can form this knot to violin shape but you need to pull the bight, then form it. I you pull working end instead then you got different knot.
OVER DIRECT double
Harder because of problematic bight making. Nice little bight as the final product.
OVER TWISTED single (side rope to right)
Very good knot. You can use it to lead rope to right side or down.
OVER TWISTED double
Very good knot. Rope lead exactly down.
UNDER DIRECT single
Harder. While pulling working end deforms the knot: the wrap gets apart. But it is still useful.
UNDER DIRECT double
Harder. Harder unknotting. Not standard look.
UNDER DIRECT double variation
Fine look. Solid. Here is a flash video to show you how to adjust wrap to get a loop to pull through bight.
UNDER TWISTED single
The best one. Rope leads to left or down.
COMBI DIRECT single
Solid knot with not much decorative look. Over + under variation.
??? COMBI (U+O) -> or OVER??? -> right TWISTED single
I cannot find out how I did this knot...But I have a photo of "how to":
See: How to
The best looking violet clef shape knot I've seen. Make under + over pattern and then twist to right.
