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.

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…

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. Rather than the first and last winds only being techeiles, the first and last chulyot are winds, and white is used in the event a chulya ends and begins at one of the 5 knots. The final result…
