Part 2 - Larks head knots
Part 1 (intro and basic knots) is right here!
There are two ways to construct a larks head knot: horizontally and vertically. If you've ever used gift tags or price tags that attach with a string, you may already know how to tie a horizontal larks head knot. Here we'll cover both techniques.
This knot is commonly used horizontally for mounting on a ring, buckle, or other object to start a macramé project. Vertically, when tied in a series, it is also used to “coat” a stationary cord, giving it a thick and intricate pattern.
