A customer contacted me recently and asked me to post a description of the way I tie my bundles of Yarrow. I was a little surprised, but it soon occurred that it may not be as obvious a sort of thing as I had assumed.
I thought for some time, that at least when someone received a set of Yarrow from me, they would simply reverse the steps of untying a bundle. But I soon realized that many would probably just slip the cord off the end, and leave a pile of cord on the table in front of them. If one had a sleeve, this tying, again, would be unnecessary of course.
It simply starts with a slipknot or lasso,
several turns; then a spiral to the other end.
Several turns then spiral back to the loose end and tie. -Bow knot, if you want to
