Celtic Knot Necklace {Tutorial}

I’m totally on a necklace kick. Now that I’ve decided to actually accessorize rather than just slap something on, I realized that my jewelry collection leaves something to be desired.

And as much as I love me some Charming Charlie, I can’t afford to buy all the lovelies they have. Especially since I’m on a nautical kick right now, I figured it would easily lend itself to a killer creative piece!

Celtic Knot Necklace
Materials

Cotton rope/cord
Jewelry chain link
Scissors
Matching Thread
Needle

Cut a looooooong piece of rope. Err on the side of ridiculously long rather than too short. How tightly you tie your knot and how long your chain is will determine how much rope you need, so there’s no real measurement.

Tie your Celtic Triangle knot in the middle of your length of rope. I highly recommend watching the video a time or two before trying it.

I promise this is not as hard as it looks!

Feed the ends of the rope through your chain. The ends of the chain should be at each side of the knot so the top does not need to be connected.

 There you have it! A little tough, a little sweet, and a whole lot of awesomeness!

Tie rope together at top when they meet. I burned the edges of mine to prevent fraying while finishing it off, but totally not necessary.

Put a few stiches through the knot to secure it.
Pinch ends together and secure with a few stitches.

Wrap thread around the ends and snip ends.
A little tough. A little sweet. 100% nautical awesomeness!

      I love making knots. Sometimes I have six different projects going at once. I drive my hubby bananas. He used to be in the Navy and I also was in the Navy when we met. Maybe that is why I love doing nautical knots. Sometimes I think I was born on a boat. Several years ago I went on a Whale Watch boat in Maine and loved every minute. My husband also knows how to do the “Real Macrame” knots. He has made 40-foot long fringed hanging for on ships. I have one that is about ten feet long. It is a lot of knots, but that is where the history comes from with macrame knots. The sailors had alot of time to themselves while out at sea and they did this to keep themselves busy. I hope this is not too boring for younger people. Have lots of fun with the knots. I have done Josephine Knots for special gifts for my friends in rattail cord which is actually very hard because it is slippery. Rope is much easier.
      Thanks for your tutorial and sharing.

I have several people that can’t see very well and words are a big help to them sometimes more than the pictures. Please send me an e-mail if you can or where I could buy the book and the name of it. Thanks
