How to Tie Decorative Rope Knots

Jul 8th

Decorative rope knots are often seen in bracelets and necklaces handmade to add another element of complexity. If treating a decorative knot for the first time, use a piece of nylon cord that can be easily removed if you make a big mistake.

Instructions to tie decorative rope knots: tie a knot that resembles a pretzel shape. Bring the right end of the rope and tie through the top left-hand side of your pretzel. Continue to hold the right end of the rope and put it under and through the new bond that had formed in the right side. Tighten the knot to secure it.

Bring the right end of the string under and on the left side of the rope. Set making it below the loop you just created. Use your hands to twist the loop formed only twice, so there are three holes. Now you have three “branches” of the rope to work with.

Braiding yarns like your hair. Slip knot in the rope length. Push the resulting bight or open loop, loop through the slip knot. Continue to push the New Bay through each previous loop until you reach the desired length of the chain. Finally, to tie decorative rope knots, block the chain in place by pushing the end of the rope through the end bay and pulling firmly.
