two strand stopper knot with tutorial

Based on diagram in "Decorative Knotting" by Peter Owen

The two strand makes a simple lanyard knot in one color as seen in the second from the left zipper pull.  It can also be used to go with an already tied knot as seen in the outer examples.  It is also attractive when tied in contrasting colors.



Bring right hand cord up in a loop.


Bring left hand cord up through the loop, around and up through the loop again.


Bring left hand cord down and up through the loop.


Bring right hand cord around and up through the loop.


Grab the two cords together at each side and slowly pul them apart.  You will probably see a separartion like this (top photo).  Push the strands together (botttom photo).



Do the same on the other side.



Once the strands are in place grab the two blue strands and pull in opposition, repeat for the grey strands.

Hi Asemery,

I tied the knot following your pictorials and I recognized it as ABOK #778. Stormdrane has a video for it:

Whyknot has a newer video on it and he calls it Miniature Rose Knot:

I made a cross using ABOK #780 which is slightly thicker by going around a half cycle more before coming out of the knot and #778 at the side ends.
