This is my first Lovely Knots project. It is a small one but I have been dying to use the new lovely knots cord as both a necklace and an accent in a summer lightweight wearable project.
Fernando DaSilva is the author and designer of all the pieces in John Beads new book. This booklet (36 pages) is a fantastic introduction to the ancient art of Chinese knotting and has me thinking about different ways to add knots to my projects.
What I love about the book is how each knot’s construction is photographed. The booklet instructions are clear and the font is big and easy to read!
These are the three knots I practiced this weekend.
The green Lovely Knots cord happens to be a favorite.
I used the cord for the necklace, I made my first “Cross Knot” and I added these pretty pewter end caps to finish my ends!
