When most folks think of a Globe Knot, they think of a round Turk's Head, but you can also use it to create a square Turk's Head. At first look this design may look as though it will be complicated to tie, but don't let that persuade you not to attempt it. If you place the pins on the mandrel correctly, you will have no trouble tying this Globe Knot.
In this article I have chosen to include the full in-depth tutorial along with the Adobe Acrobat tutorial for download.

Recently I have taken an interest in tying Globe Knot Cubes and it has become quite obsessive. When I first started tying knots, I thought Globe Knots were out of reach, but if you follow the tutorials correctly, you shouldn't have too much trouble tying.

I've noticed a few of these types of charms on the internet, but I couldn't find any that used my favorite team, so I decided to make my own.
I purchased blank Shoelace Charms on Etsy and once I received them, got started using Photoshop to create the correct size logo. Once I created the logo, I printed it on glossy photo paper. Then I stuck the adhesive clear covers over the logo and cut out around the cover. I attached the covered logo to the charm by using Krazy "Craft" glue.

While getting ready for kickoff, I decided I would tinker with a type of design that I have never tied. Though the design is simple, it does take patience to get the letter to look correct.
This fob was modeled after JD of TyingItAllTogether Alpha Fob.
