7-8-11-13 Belz / Slonim / Ger 3024 4032 rhecht

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…

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…

R’ Shalom Arush (Breslov) Tying Method

R’ Shalom Arush (Breslov) Tying Method 1529 2048 rhecht

This tying method is an interesting combination of 7-8-11-13, divided by both knots and Rambam-style Yemenite chulyot.
