Junior Pineapple Knot Walking Stick

I gave away walking sticks to some friends at the holidays.  Our group of five year old's children expressed some interest in having walking sticks of their own, so this is the prototype.  This is a half-stick of what I usually make with an oil finish and a rubber stopper to keep the end from sliding around.  Around it is tied a type 1 pineapple knot in blue and red that originated from a 4 bight turks head. Up until now I have tied pineapple knots from instructions with diagrams and over-under instructions.  This one I tied without instructions which is an accomplished for me.  If you would like information on tying a long pineapple knot, KHWW has a tutorial.
