This pattern is part of a chapter in the book Figuring Fibers, and buying the pattern online gets you the entire chapter of the book.

The chapter includes a mathematical overview, knitting techniques for certain torus knots and links, detailed mathematics, and knitting patterns for various styles of torus knots and links.

There are instructions for making decorative (flat) torus knots and links, cowls, and bracelets.

From the Chief Editor of the volume: “Chapter 6 by sarah-marie belcastro discusses knitting certain torus knots and links, including the mathematics and technique. Algorithms for making pointy and round versions of the torus knots and links are included. While these make beautiful works of art, belcastro also shows them being used as cowls and bracelets. If you are wondering about the amazing cover image on the book, it is a hand-dyed (8,6) torus link.”
