Raavad: Add Opinion
The Rambam maintains that there should be between 7-13 links (chulyot) and that each link should have 3 winds (krichot). In the closest link to the garment, the first wind should be white, while the other two winds of that link should be techelet. In the farthest link from the garment, the final wind should be white, while the other two winds of that link should be techelet. All other links contain only techelet.<ref>[https://www.sefaria.org/Mishneh_Torah%2C_Fringes.1?lang=bi Rambam, Halachot Tzitzit Chapter 1]</ref> [https://www.tekhelet.com/tying/rambam/ Diagrams]
===Raavad/ Rav Natronai Gaon===The Raavad quotes Rav Natronai Gaon and holds that there should be 4 links and that each link has 7 winds. Each link is separated by a knot. The winds of each link should alternate white and techelet, the first and last wind of each link being white. The Raavad dictates that the link closest to the edge of the garment and the two links farthest from the garment must follow the alternating pattern. However, the unmentioned link can either be all white or the alternating white and techelet pattern.<ref>[https://www.sefaria.org/Hasagot_HaRaavad_on_Mishneh_Torah%2C_Fringes.1.7.1?lang=bi Raavad on Rambam Halachot Tzitzit 1:7]</ref> [https://www.tekhelet.com/tying/raavad/ Diagrams]
