various chinese knots and I thought I would share with you one of the knots that I
demonstrated for the viewers.
Note: My directions and method of doing the knot may or may not make sense to you. However, there are many ways to do chinese knotting. I highly recommend getting a book on the various knots and their meanings. Additionally, you can always go on YouTube. I find it is a fun resource for learning many new techniques. You can also find celtic knots that are very similar to the chinese knots in appearance but not meaning.
accessories with the chinese double knot is a nice handmade gift with a sweet sentiment attached to it.
- The final size of your knot completely depends on the size of the cord you use. For the hair comb I chose a cord that was 1/8".
- If you are planning on making earrings to match, then I would choose a very thin cord in a similar color.
- You should also take into consideration the texture of the cord you pick as that will also affect the final piece.
- Again, you can not beat YouTube as a great source to see how different people make these knots. Each person has their own technique and I am sure you can find someone whose technique works for you.
