Pentagram shoe lacing (pretty neat)

This Blog is borrowed from Ravenmoon thought the teenagers I have on my page and a few adults might like this post.

This purely decorative lacing forms a pentagram, or five pointed star.


Besides the "magical" associations, solid five pointed stars are found on


many flags, most notably the fifty stars on the U.S. flag. This lacing works


best with thinner or flat laces because several eyelets have to


accommodate two passes of shoelace.

Setting the bottom "corners" higher up centers the pentagram.

In this photo, the top "rung" has been shifted up one set of eyelets to


lengthen the top point.

More Lacing Photos Lacing Technique:
Photobucket1. The lace is run straight across (grey section) and is fed into the third


set of eyelets from the top of the shoe.


2. Both ends run straight down on the inside and emerge from the bottom


pair of eyelets (skip two sets of eyelets). These mark the bottom "corners"


of the pentagram.


3. The left (blue) end forms the bottom "cross" as follows: Run diagonally


up to the right, feeding back into the third eyelet from the top on the right


side of the shoe, then run straight down on the inside to emerge from the


bottom right "corner" of the pentagram, then diagonally up to the left,


feeding a second time into the third eyelet from the top on the left side of


the shoe.


4. The left (blue) end now continues to form the top "rung" as follows: Run


straight up on the inside and emerge from the next eyelet up the shoe,


then run straight across to feed into the adjacent eyelet on the right side


of the shoe, then straight up to emerge from the top right eyelet.


5. With the top "rung" completed, the right (yellow) end now runs


diagonally up to the top middle and wraps around that rung, then runs


diagonally back down and left, feeding a second time into the eyelet at the


bottom left "corner" of the pentagram.


6. Finally, the left (yellow) end runs all the way up the inside left of the


shoe to emerge from the top left eyelet.


Features:

Decorative look

Loose fit

Harder to tighten


Comparative Length = 135%

Laced area uses more (about +35%)

Longer laces needed (about +17%)

Shortens lace ends (about −32%)



NOTE:

It may take some experimentation to get a pentagram with fairly even


points, which will depend on the width of the shoe and the eyelet spacing.


Running the bottom "corners" through the second pair of eyelets from the


bottom reduces the length of the lower points and shifts the pentagram


higher up the shoe. The top "rung" can be also be shifted higher to


increase the length of the top point.










Have Fun :)

Blessings...

Love this. I posted this in my blog (and told everyone is was from here, of course. And I left in your part that you had borrowed it from someone else). Now I must go out and buy chunky necklaces. :)
