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!
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!
