How to Tie a Josephine Knot

The Josephine is a decorative knot that can be used for creative projects such as macramé!

Instructions:

1. Separate cords into 2 equal groups (usually 2 cords per group).

2. With the left cords, make an inward loop ensuring the bottom ends run underneath the top ends.

3. Place the cords from the right side on top of the left loop and then slide them underneath the ends of the left cords.

4. Run the ends of the right cords over, under, over, and under the looped cords.

5. Tighten the knot by pulling gently on the ends.

Tips

Josephine knots can be done with single cords, but look better when the cords are doubled.

For a nicer looking knot, ensure the cords run parallel and that the knot is not over tightened.

You will need:

  • Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn
