In this video, the method shown for tying tzitzit is that of Nusach Ari. We have also chosen the most common number of wraps/knots. There are, of course, other traditions for tying tzitzit, but we have chosen this one as an example.
The number of wraps/knots symbolize the following: 5 double knots + 8 strands = 13. The numerical value of the word tzitzit is 600. 13+600=613, the rabbinic enumeration of the commandments.
7 + 8 = 15, standing for Yod - Hey (10+5) the first two letters of the Name.
11 = Vav - Hey (6+5), last two letters of the Name.
13 = 'echad, Hebrew meaning "one" (Aleph-Chet-Dalet, 1+8+4 = 13).
Thus, the wraps/knots 7, 8, 11, 13 represent the phrase "Adonai is One".
