Khipu Notes

Ascher Databook Notes:
  1. Only clusters of single knots are used on the khipu. The lower knot cluster position has been interpreted as the units position and the higher as the tens position.
  2. Construction note: AS101 - Part 2 consists of 2 khipus tied together. The 2 parts are listed separately as AS 101 Part_1 and AS 101 Part_2. A discussion of them is in AS101 - Part 2 Part II.

Primary Cord Notes:
The twisted ends of the main cords of the 2 parts are tied together with a square knot.
