Rambam with Double Knots Before and After

Rambam with Double Knots Before and After 757 1600 rhecht

The logic here is that the “Kesher Elyon” is unclear if it’s the knot closest to or farthest from the Beged, so this satisfies both if one wants to be Machmir on the double knot according to the Mordechai.

Rosh, or Reverse Chinuch Method

Rosh, or Reverse Chinuch Method 720 960 rhecht

Some prefer 7 Techeiles Chulyos instead of 6. This method allows for it by doing blue-white-blue in between knots 2-3 and 3-4. From VilnaGaon.org: “A Discussion of the Viewpoint of the Rosh on Tying Tzitzit With Tekhelet In the commentary of the Rosh on the Torah in the book Hadar Z’kainim, at the end of…

However, the Gemara isn’t explicit in what exactly the numbers 7 or…

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…
