How do you measure a Knot ?

Some knots have a fat section above the glue base that's larger than the advertised size. It's good to have the knot you want before you make the hole, but you can always make the hole larger or flare it out at the top, sometimes the hole needs to be 1.5~2mm larger than advertised. On the other hand some boar knots I've gotten didn't get larger above the base, unfortunately there is no hard and fast rule.
