|If you already know another ocean mat you may use that one as well.|
| The start is a turks head knot.
Start with a loop,
|make the second loop over the first and pass under the starting string,||weave the string through, one up one down till you are at the bottom.||pull both loops out,|
|and twist them, keeping the one over- one under pattern||bring the one over the other, keeping the pattern at the topmost crossing.||The other crossings are not in pattern any more.||Feed one string through, the first two tucks are in pattern again.|
|Feed the other string through, the pattern is back.||Shape the knot. Double or follow and take the old one out, as far as needed.||If you use the mat for a head, this is where you make eyes. When you get to the middle of the mat you can start with the eye-knots.||The eyes are just thumb knots, come back to this side to fix them, and go out at the big spots for the neck.|
