First let me say that Tony Emery is a genius when it comes to most decorative knotting and just knocked my
socks off during one afternoon I was fortunate enough to spend with he and Lily Morales (from the Left Coast).  
He first caught my attention at a Mennonite festival of old-fashioned farming and implement construction.  Tony
had a table mostly devoted to small rope crafts, in particular netting as used on the farm and for fishing streams
in South-eastern Pennsylvania, and also had a couple of flintlocks from that era.  A very interesting man and one
of the organizers of the "Goschenhoppen" festival.   

At the festival the number of hats he was wearing really precluded any lengthy conversation but when I met with
he and Lily years late, it was wonderful seeing all the small and intricate knotwork he kept pulling from his
reticule.  

Here's a net instruction which, I confess, I neither do nor understand, but for the purposes of getting these
tutorials on-line I shall post this (3/2018) and ask Tony to investigate and clean up my act for me.
