In knot theory, the **7 _{1} knot**, also known as the

**septoil knot**, the

**septafoil knot**, or the

**(7, 2)-torus knot**, is one of seven prime knots with crossing number seven. It is the simplest torus knot after the trefoil and cinquefoil.

The 7_{1} knot is invertible but not amphichiral. Its Alexander polynomial is

its Conway polynomial is

and its Jones polynomial is

^{[1]}
