- torus knots

I'm trying to understand more about the Hopf map and, I think I can see that the torus knot K1 defines the boundary of a looped, twisted ribbon embedded in the interior, aka the Mobius strip.

So slicing the torus open along the knot boundary means you have two halves of the torus linked together, so a K1 knot is a leaf. Is that correct or should I try something else?
