Instructions for Turk's Head on Kingspoke?

Anyone have a good source for detailed instructions for tying a turk's head on the kingspoke of a wheel? All of my rigging books start with the knot in hand, rather than on something....

This site should answer your questions. There are two references in the left column.

The International Knot Guild folks might be able to answer this question. They have a web site:www.igkt.net/index.html

There are forums available for posting and asking question.

Just start out as if you were going to tie it in hand, but use the wheel instead making sure that the first turns pass on one side of the kingspoke.
