When I'm bored, I like to twiddle with one or two pieces of string (Never underestimate the fun that can be had with knotting scrap string together!), and I accidentally stumbled upon this knot. It's so fun to do and looks almost like a row of knitting. I'm not sure if it's a real knot or not (Heh-heh), but it's SO FUN.
You can keep this going for a while, and as you keep going you'll notice the knots will arrange themselves in a pattern much like knitting! When you're finished, bunch the strings on the opposite side of the row together so the vertical string is not visible underneath.
This knotting technique is great to cover a keyring for a gift, or basically anything that can easily and safely be accessed by you.
Do you have a favorite knot that looks really cool? Tell me!
