Wikipedia says this about a Menger Sponge: "In mathematics, the Menger sponge is a fractal curve... The Menger sponge simultaneously exhibits an infinite surface area and encloses zero volume."
|Paracord Menger Sponge|
To tie the Paracord Menger Sponge, follow these steps:
- Gather 8 strands of paracord (4-five feet strands and 4-three feet strands).
- Follow the Super Brick Stitch tutorial for the main structure of the sponge.
- The difference in the Super Brick Stitch tutorial and the Menger Sponge is the holes in a four sides of the cube. You need to start by using the four long strands on each wall section of the cube, use the shorter strands for the mid sections of walls.
- Once you tie the Starter Brick Stitch, instead of continuing as the tutorial shows, you need to flip it over and then continue tying.
- Once you have two levels tied, begin tying four columns, but stop when you complete two levels.
- Finish the design by tying two more "full" levels.
A new friend, Pablo has created a tutorial for tying the smaller paracord cube on his blog. It's an interesting paracord blog that I suggest visiting.
