Half-hitched bottle

#1by Lasse C » Sat Aug 15, 2015 1:29 pm

Hi, all!
Half hitching is one of my favorite techniques, in spite of being extremely time-consuming and labor intensive. This pattern for a kind of “canteen” is an idea I have played with for a while, but not gotten around to really do anything about – until now!

Pretty satisfied with the result, actually.

Wow - work of art :Hrts: :Hrts: thanks for sharing
Half hitched a bottle once, so I know it is easy in theory, but extremely labour, time and material expensive, but even more, requires great skill to do a neat symmetrical job and yours is just perfect

Thanks!
And yes, that is indeed a very good description of half hitching! :D
It is easy in theory, and any reasonably dexterous person can learn the basics in a couple of hours.
To learn it well, on the other hand, to be good at it, takes a surprisingly large amount of practice!

It is about 45 years since I made my first hitched bottle, so I´ve had some practice... :lol:
