Double coin knotted cards



Cards today. I love using origami paper on cards, the patterns and texture are amazing. I made these two cards just by layering but the Chinese knots in 2mm satin cord and the washi (origami) paper give them the 'wow' factor. The knots are a double coin knot and what you might call a double double coin knot which are quite easy to tie. Using more than one cord to make the knots makes them show up really well. If you find yourself getting hooked on knotting there is a great book 'Chinese Knots for Beaded Jewellery' by Suzen Millodot



How to tie the knots


Double Coin Knot



Tighten gently one loop at a time in the order you made them. You may find it helps to place your fingers flat on the knot while you do this.

Double double coin knot

Tie a double coin knot and then another using both ends




Tighten gently one loop at a time in the order you made them. You may find it helps to place your fingers flat on the knot while you do this.

Adding a second cord

Slide the cord along the side of the first cord. Do not change sides.




Then add another color in the same way. Any flat knot will work well with this technique.
