Good Job on the knots page. Looks like you have put a lot of work into it.
Did the Arrow of Light Knot get changed over time? Yours is different than
my AOL knot I have on my uniform.
I wear mine with the red thread to the wearer's right. My AOL knot has the
green thread loop in front of the standing part, and the red thread loop is
the in back of the standing part.
According to the 1995 Insignia Guide, "Right side up. The loop of the
embroidered square knot that comes in front of the standing part is always
to the wearer's right..."
We have my AOL knot on exactly as is pictured in the 1995 Insignia Guide, I
checked on Alan Houser's Troop 24 knot page at
and his AOL knot looks just like my knot, but it is the opposite of what you
have scanned and displayed.
