Before You Begin

You will need to prepare and cut the cord before you begin the project. Ideally, you will use fabric scissors, as they are sharp and precise when cutting and trimming ropes.
Cut the #48 cord into:
  • 4 pieces 38in long
  • 4 pieces 18in long
#20 cord to be cut into:
  • 3 pieces 12in long (e.g., two pieces of Sea Foam Green, and one piece of Lavender color)


We will start by attaching four 38in long cords to the ring using a lark’s head knot. Begin by folding the cord in half.

Guide the cord over and behind the ring to form the loop.


Pull the cord ends through the loop and secure them tightly.

Repeat with the other three 38-inch cords. Tie a square knot using the 4 cords on the left side. Take the far-right cord and place it over the two middle cords. Then take the far-left cord and guide it over the right cord.


Fold it behind the middle cords and pull it through the loop. You have done half of the square knot.

Now make the other half of square knot. Start from the left. Take the cord and cross it over the middle pieces to form the loop.


Guide the far-right piece over the left, behind the middle ones, and up through the loop. Secure each knot tightly.

Now use the 4 cords on the right to make the same square knot.


Next, you are going to make an alternate square knot by using only the middle 4 cords. The following row will be the same as the first one, using the 4 cords on the left, and 4 cords on the right. Continue tying alternating square knots until you reach the ring. You should have about 15 rows of square knots. We will now move on to securing these loose ends to the ring using the lark’s head knot. Start by working the far-left rope. Take it up and over the ring.

We will move on to attaching the shorter 18in pieces of string. Fold them in half and attach 2 pieces to each side using Lark’s head knot.

Tie approximately four-square knots on the left side, slightly angling, or until you have reached the ring. Guide the loose ends under the ring and attach them the same way you secured the middle part.
