Back-to-Back Crooked River by Roland Moose
This is a 4 strand sinnet starting in AABB colour order.  The inner 2 strands are passive carriers, and so can be much shorter.

- cross a bight of Outer Left (OL) over the carriers
- cross the Outer Right (OR) over the bight, under the carriers, and through the tip of the bight from back to front on the Right Hand Side (RHS) of the carriers
- remove slack

- cross a bight of OR under the carriers
- cross the OL under the bight, crossing under the carriers to the RHS, fold the cord over carriers and through the tip of the bight from front to back on the Left Hand Side (LHS) of the carriers
- remove slack

- repeat, alternating.

Appears to be by Roland Moose found on the Andy Social wiki.

The Vertebrae Sinnet
My RSS feed from Facebook has started working again!  Change in underlying software or Dman wasn't posting for a long while?

The Vertebrae is a 4 strand sinnet.  The example starts with ABAB colour order.  Both inner strands are passive and should therefore be much shorter.  Also the OL strand will need to be somewhat longer than the OR.  

Start with tying a slipped overhand in A and thread B through it.  Order your strands and then:
- tie an overhand with your Outer Right (OR) over the middle 2 strands.   Remove slack.
- tie an overhand with your Outer Left (OL) over all 3 other strands.  Remove slack.
- Repeat.

How to make a "laced fringed fantasy" tassel
Or at least that's what you get when you translate the page (http://bbs.zhongguojie.org/thread-35501-1-1.html).  Breaking it down a bit more, I think it's "Fantasy series" or "Dream series" and the second part is "decorated edge tassel" which makes sense if you look closely.  It's a subtle but interesting effect.

Overview of Korean style puffy tassels
Luxurious abundance of tassels descending from a plump, stuffed looking object.  It's one of the Korean styles of tassels.  Here's an overview of one way to do that (http://bbs.zhongguojie.org/thread-38139-1-1.html).  Here's an extra example of the type (http://bbs.zhongguojie.org/thread-49022-1-1.html).

Mikhailovat
Today is a day for rediscovering that which I thought I was already subscribed to.  Mikhailovat is a lovely and prolific knot tyer that likes to thoroughly explore ideas and variants.  Often found to be tying mats in soutache amongst other things.  Whether this is a new account, or a new RSS feed format from Flickr... whatever.  Here it is for now.

Endless Falls Turks Sinnet
With 6 strands in ABBCCA colour order, wave the outer A strands into criss-crossing frames locked into place by interweaving with the middle  strands on either side.  The inner strands are just passive carriers and so should be much shorter.

Knotted running shoe
No instructions that I can see (http://bbs.zhongguojie.org/thread-34598-1-1.html).  Yet??  If you scroll through the many, many pages of comments, you'll see others post their shoes as well.
