Traditional Sailorly Arts

While I've been studying at the AMC, I've had a little bit of free time to work on some of my own things. This bottle was one of them.

The Bottle

The top section is needle hitching with a waxed whipping twine. Then a section of some hitching running the other way (I don't have all the books here and I forget the exact name). Then a turk's head, a few tripled carrick bends and another turk's head.

I'm a little disappointed that the lower turk's head crowded out the carrick bends, but that's okay. Something to keep in mind for next time.
