Can the double knots on tzizit be any kind of knot or only a specific kind of double knot? Are their halachos regulating the knots?

  • How many kinds of double knots are there? @msh – Double AA Aug 24 '18 at 14:56
  • @double AA my point is whats considered a double knot regarding halacha and can you use different kinds. Halacha could define double knot differently than the English language. In fact the English language does seem to define double knit as any knit tied tied twice google.com/amp/s/www.collinsdictionary.com/amp/english/… – Orion Aug 24 '18 at 16:07
  • Does halakha have a category of "double knot"? I've heard of "permanent knot" "artisnal knot" "slip knot" "unprofessional knot" in halakha before. If you have a reason to think halakha recognizes the category "double knot" please add it to the question. If you don't, then just ask about the knots of tzitzit and don't limit to a category that may not exist – Double AA Aug 24 '18 at 16:09
  • @double Well we have it by Tzizit don't we? And by shabbos I remember learning about double knots and how they're prohibited מדרייתה. – Orion Aug 24 '18 at 16:13
  • I usually see tzitzit tied with double knots. That doesn't mean there is such a category. If you have a reason to think halakha recognizes the category "double knot" please add it to the question. If you don't, then just ask about the knots of tzitzit and don't limit to a category that may not exist. On Shabbat permanent knots of all forms are forbidden – Double AA Aug 24 '18 at 16:14
