Part 1 This single strand sar knot is based on the instructions in the "Harrison Book of Knots". I corrrected one misleading drawing and now show how to finish the knot. The star knot is a series of cow hitches tied first around a starting rod and then around previously tied cow hitches. Each cow hitch forms one point to the star Step 1 Tie cowhitch around starting rod (dowel, pencil, etc.) leaving 4" tail on right. Step 2 Make small loop and bring Working End Over 1 strand, Under 1, Across, up Under 1, Over 1, Under 1 and through the small loop. This completes the second cow hitch. Step 3 Bring tail over to left. Step 4 Make small loop and bring the WE up through small loop of previous cow hitch. Tie third cow hitch just as you did in step 2 this time you will be going around 2 strands Step 5 repeat Step 4 - this completes the 4th cow hitch. Step 6 Closing the knot adds 2 cow hitches (points) to the knot - make at as large as you want. Bring WE from left top right adjacent to starting rod and up through last small loop. Remove rod.
