True Lovers Knot Bracelet

6:54 PM | Labels: , |

I wanted to give my girlfriend a bracelet to let her know how much I love her. But I thought a big Survival Bracelet wouldn't look so nice on her slender wrist. So I searched the Ashley Book of Knots and came up with the True Lovers Knot (ABOK #798).







I started with 6 feet of paracord and melted the ends of the cord.







We are going to start with a 2 Strand Matthew Walker Knot. Form a loop and hold the loop under your thumb. Now make 2 additional loops. One loop will have the running end going in front (left loop), and the other loop will have the running end going behind (right loop).





Take the running end from the front and go through the opposite loop. This is the end coming from the left and going through the right loop.

Take the running end from the back and go through the opposite loop. This is the end coming from the right and going through the left loop.




Now you pass the running ends through the loops one more time...

Take the end coming from the left loop and pass it through the right loop.

Take the end coming from the right loop and pass it through the left loop.

Keep the cords going in the same direction...


Carefully pull tight. You will have to make a few adjustments to get the knot tight. Just keep working the looseness out of the knot.


Now we will tie the True Lovers Knot. Take one of your cords and tie a simple over hand knot.






Tie a second over hand knot by passing the running end through the loop of the first over hand knot.






Pull tight to form the True Lovers Knot







Now we are are going to tie the Lanyard Knot. I forgot to take pictures of this knot, so I have included a link to a video on how to tie this knot.

Cut the excess cord as close to the knot as possible and melt the ends.



Take the Lanyard knot and pass through the loop formed by the Matthew Walker Knot... If the loop of the Matthew Walker Knot is too big you will have to loosen the MW Knot and reduce the size of the loop and then tighten it up again. (Or if your lazy, just grab a needle and thread and sew up the loop to make it smaller.)

Cool site and idea! I've used a lot of the "Tying it All Together" designs. If you don't mind I'm going to play with this idea.
