This is similar in format to the Ben Ish Hai method, but without the “spine.” After each Chulya of three, the Shamash goes through each set of four strings to make a separation between one Chulya and the next. What we do to make it more even is we switch direction of the winds after…

Ra’avad Style 7-8-11-13 Method with Double Knots

Ra’avad Style 7-8-11-13 Method with Double Knots 3024 4032 rhecht

From Ptil Tekhelet: This method defines a chulyah as between 7 and 13 twists. There are five (double) knots, with chulyot between them of twists that alternate between Tekhelet and white. The first and last twist of each chulyah is white. Additional comments: This is a method open to a lot of interpretation since Raavad…

Rabbi Elyashiv Knohl wore (and R’ David Ben Zazon wears) 7-8-11-13 with Chabad Chulyot, the first 6 winds (two Chulyot) and last 3 winds being white. In R’ Ben Zazon’s words: אני קושר כמו השולחן ערוך גם את התכלת, כיוון שכך המנהג המקובל במאות השנים האחרונות, ולגבי התכלת אין רצף של מנהג… זה מה שהרב…

This is an interesting one. Raavad ratio, 7-8-11-13, holding like Rashi where the first three winds and last three winds per Chulya are white, but per in between each set of knots. The rest of the winds in the middle are Techeiles, which is 7 (-6) + 8 (-6) + 11 (-6) + 13 (-6).…

7-8-11-13 with Alternating Chulyos 720 960 rhecht

Received from someone who wishes to remain anonymous. To quote: Regarding pattern: The idea is to: (1) capture the nice symbolism R Aryeh Kaplan gives the Ashkenazi 7, 8, 11 and 13, the same groupings as the 39 melakhos; and as halachic argument So… You will see that the Ashkenazi implementation of the Sifra’s 5…

Tosafos Shulchan Aruch HaRav 3024 4032 rhecht

This method assumes (like the Rambam) that all the twists except for the first and last be Tekhelet. It keeps five (double) knots, and distributes 7, 8, 11, and 13 twists between them. The Tekhelet string is wrapped through and over each group of three (a chulyah) in order to keep them together. It’s basically…

7-8-11-13 with Yemenite Chulyos, also fulfills the AR”I in 7-8-11-13 with broken Chulyos between 5 knots. Breslov wears like this and rumor has it that Chabad originally tied Chulyos like this before doing the current method. R’ Zalman Nechemia Goldberg ZT”L also notably wore this method on one of his Talleisim.

For those that don’t want to change the standard tying method with Lavan. This also is good as it meets the Raavad’s requirement of no less than 7, no more than 13. In Chassidus/Kabbalah this pattern is also very popular since the AR”I prescribed this ratio but with Chulyos. The AR”I in Shaar HaKavanos apparently…
