The Winston Knot Series

 

There is a basic sequence of steps for making the Winston Knot with scope for variations regarding the length of the braid and number of threads comprising it.

Here I present examples of it.

Very nice indeed! Keep 'em coming. Always impressed.

As an idea how about doing and egg wash and some other wash on alternate braids before baking? Showing contrast etc.

Thank you Danni3113,

I give away most of these breads, so it is difficult to get a crumb shot of them. I remember that this particular loaf was a birthday present for a friend of mine.

best regards
