Default Nautical Knot

Anyone have a tutorial on tying string in loops like shown on this card?

That's a great card.

I did a google search and came up with this video.

I tried it and it's easy! Yay!

Never mind! Believe it or not, I have never tied a square knot before and didn't know what one looked like. I've got it now. It's a wonder I ever learned how to tie my own shoes---thank goodness for buckles!

Yes, that is a simple square knot, remember this little poem to make it easier
Right over left, left over right, makes a knot that's sturdy and tight

There is a super easy knot that is called a Sailors Knot or Carrick Bend. It is more showy and nautical looking, very beautiful and even better, it is super easy! You can see it on the tri-shutter card I made for my dad, and there are links to an animation of the knot in the post also:

I used two strands held together as one, which makes it really neat looking!

Let me know if you like this knot!

I like tying a figure 8 knot (Flemish Knot) for my nautical cards. Figure 8 | How to tie the Figure 8 (Flemish) Knot | Boating Knots
