Knot Mosaics for the 1012 Knot

For many knots, the tile number and/or crossing number cannot be realized when the mosaic number is realized.

The mosaic of the 1012 knot given in the table has the mosaic number and tile number realized, but the crossing number of this knot cannot be realized on a 6-mosaic. The crossing number is first realized on a 7-mosaic with 31 non-blank tiles. Below are the relevant mosaics.
