Here's a photo that gives the general idea of the lariat. I didn't realize how difficult it was to photograph "product". All the photo of the lariat hanging around a sweater turned out awful...it just didn't look like anything.
Anyway, this shows the spacing and the knots. These are 8mm aurora borealis bicones. After you cut the tail off the final knot you touch it with the smallest amount of superglue to keep it from unraveling.
I'll add other entries with additional designs. My computer currently requires me to close a window before opening another. ARGGGH.
