This is my First Ible so please let me know how I have done.
Thank You and Enjoy!
Step 1: Cordage
The length of your cord will obviously dictate the size of your Soloman Man, trial and error is how I learned how much to use. The length here is 8' long. End product is roughly 12" from feet to head.
Step 2: Fold the Rope in Half
Step 3: Start the Core or "Body"
To make things easier to understand I will be labeling each Running End
We will be calling the Running End on the Right "Line A" and the running end on the Left "Line B".
Line A will always be the one on the Right Side
Line B will always be the one on the Left Side
Step 4: Make the Feet
Once done, take Line B and run it over the body and into the loop that we made with Line A.
Step 5: Starting the Knots
Take Line A and run it over the Body and under Line B.
Take Line B and run it under the Body and up through the loop created from Line A.
Step 6: Tighten the Knot
Once you tighten the knot you will see how each knot will look. There is a straight line on the left and a loop on the right of the body. Each knot here after will be opposite of the last as you will see in the next steps.
Step 7: Second Knot
Now run Line A underneath the Body and over Line B.
After that, Run Line B over the Body and down through the loop from Line A.
Rinse and Repeat, rotating lines under and over.
Step 8: Knot It Up
Refer to Steps 6 and 7 for added knots.
Step 9: Almost Done
It does not matter how many Knots that you have on the Body. Just make sure that the head size is equivalent.
Step 10: Make Some Arms and Done!
Grab a little colored cordage and make a "Wig" and you'll have a Soloman Woman to keep your new buddy company!
I hope you enjoyed my First Instructable and more importantly the making of your own Soloman Man. Once you get the hang of it you can do it in a matter of minutes, make great conversation starters and giggles from kids in a flash!
Have fun and Thank You for viewing!
