Square Knot Tutorial

This is a knot which uses four cords, two working cords (the outer two) and two cords in the middle which are used to work around.

It is great to create plant hangers and friendship bracelets, but also a beautiful knot to build up wall hangings with!


You will need:

-tape measure


-branch* or dowel

-desired amount of rope (this will vary depending on what you are creating)


Creating the knot:

1- Gather your four cords, and bring the left cord over the centre two cords and under the right cord

2- Thread the right cord under the centre two cords then up and over the left cord

3 - Pull both working cords to tighter, keeping the centre cords flat

4- Take the right cord over the centre cords and under the left cord

5- Bring the left cord behind the centre two cords and through the loop create by the right cord

6- Pull both working cords to tighten

I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial!

*always be sure to find your branches in a sustainable way, if they are freshly cut or damp at all, allow them to dry fully and some branches may need to be stripped and cleaned before they can be used - inspect regularly to ensure they don't contain any bugs.
