Click on the link “In his own words…” to read the source for the particular method. Please note that the Tekhelet Tying Tools herein are to describe the various TYING methods and not to determine how the number of strings of tekhelet to be used for a particular TYING method.  That is, there are three opinions (Rambam=1/2, Raavad=1, Tosafot=2) as to how many strings of tekhelet are to be used, however poskim don’t necessarily correlate the tying method with the opinion for number of strings.  For more on this issue see Tying FAQ or Tying Questions Answered pages.

Please remember that you MUST say “L’Shem Mitzvat Tzitzit” before putting the strings in to the hole of the talit!
