    Thanks Astia, it's a Ficcarissimo in size M. I think it's between a M and L in the Maxima's design, I use L in those but for braided buns I think I could do with a M aswell.

    Ok languagenut, I think I figured out what I did. (this is written right handed, with the left hand holding the coils)

    Gather hair into ponytail.
    Wrap hair over two fingers from nape to crown direction.
    Wrap all the way around the fingers then once around the base of the ponytail.
    Then wrap tail around fingers again, still in the nape to crown direction over the fingers next to the other wrap.
    Take remaining hair and wrap around base. (I barely had a tail left at this point.)

    So far I think it sounds like Spidermom's bun? I don't have enough experience with it to be sure, though.
    Then, instead of separating the wrapped coils like in Spidermom's bun, take both coils together as one and arrange them arm side down (that is, where your hand enters the coils, that part goes against your head, rather than the fingertip side).

    Now here's the fiddly magic bit.
    Insert fork or stick on the right side through both coils and go under/into the base section, but spread the coils apart a little bit on the left side as you insert the fork/stick. This somehow ends up making it look the way it does, as if it's a knot or something. I think I may have actually done the reverse on this last step the first time I did it, going into one coil only on the right and up through both on the left side. It seems to come out basically the same.

    While experimenting to figure out what I did I also tried wrapping the second coil the other direction rather than the same way as the first coil. It ended up looking totally different, but I also lost my hold on it, so that could also be at fault. I really have just barely enough length for this.

    some kinda of flat braided bun that has the exact steps like the knot bun.
    I tried some kind of flat bun to tuck into my beanie.
    I tried to make a real knot bun, but I canīt manage to pull my hair trough the loop to form the knot bun, so I tried it on a braid, thinking itīs easier to contain my hair in my hands.
    this is the result:

    and yes, that was the best quality I could get when I was in a hurry last friday... sorry
    buuuttt:
    I never saw the title BRAIDED KNOT BUN on lhc. I googled it, searched a tutuorial on youtube with this name, but all I could find was messy braided top knot (meh).
    so...
    I think I found the braided version of the knot bun(?)

    I just received a lovely package from Ms. Willowyn - 4 acrylics that I bought from the Swap Board. Surprisingly enough, I think the brightest stick is actually my favorite. This is my favorite go-to bun - the LWB. Nine out of ten buns end up in a lazy wrap at some point during the day!

    Currently at waist... and still growing!

    I'm into Spock bun recently. It makes my hair look much bigger than other buns
