I recently came into possession of a 4-cornered garment with tzitziyos attached to its corners that was previously owned (although not necessarily worn or endorsed) by a non-Conservative member of a Conservative synagogue.

There were four sections of windings, with approximately 4-6-10-12 winds respectively. (It is often hard to tell if a circuit is complete when they don't start and end at the same axial place.) The sections were made by winding two strings around rather than one.

This method of tying is one I've never seen before and I wanted to know if it is an identifiable minhag, and if it is indeed the standard Conservative method of tying.

FWIW, that's not what the loaner talitot in the Conservative shul where I daven weekdays look like. – Monica Cellio Sep 22 '13 at 2:02
