Khipu Notes:
Khipu was rolled in a Z spiral.
Primary Cord Notes:Primary cord has complex color patterning typical of Puruchuco khipu. The final cord has three components: KB, W, and W-AB. These three are plied together. Before final plying, primary cord has two components: one of KB interlocked with W at the doubling point, one of AB interlocked with W at the doubling point. The presumption is that the W and AB cord was doubled and plied Z, then the KB W cord was doubled and all three were plied together S. For sketch, see original notes. Color shorthand KB-W-(W-AB).
