Button knots, interlocking overhand knots, snake knots, multiple overhand sliding knots, and leaf knots comprise this intriguing necklace. Not only does it provide an attractive base to showcasean art-glass bead, it also challenges you to learn an abundance of techniques. Once you master these individual knots, you will wantto combine them in other ways.
Necklace 16 in. (41 cm)
- 3 yd. (2.7 m) #5 satin cord, in each of 2 colors: A, B

Designer’s note: Practice each knot on two shorter lengths of cord before starting this project.
Starting 1 in. (2.5 cm) from the end of the cords, tie an overhand knot with both cords to hold them in place. This knot will be cut off after the button knot is completed.
