Brown knotted-rope pot hanger. At one end of the rope the fibre has been wrapped into a circular shape. The circular shape has 4 four separate ropes and the rest of the ropes are knotted around the circle to keep it in place. There are 10 ropes coming out of the circle. The ropes are grouped together in twos as the ropes leave the circle. Each group of ropes is knotted twice together. The second knot is tied by taking one rope from one group and another rope from a second group and then they are tied together into a new knot. From these two ropes, after the knot, only one rope emerges.
