In partnership with http://www.AllFreeBeadedJewelry.com , I am pleased to present this video on how to make a simple rope necklace!

Instead of using actual rope to make a necklace, this tutorial will show you how to make your own rope with one simple knot! This beachy cool necklace will help add a little more personality to your casual outfit!


» Materials List «

• Clipboard
• White nylon cording (you can find it on Hobby Lobby's website under "craft cord")
• Scissors
• A ruler
• Optional: a pendant with a bail or a jump ring

» Instructions «

• Measure and cut four 84" (7 feet) strands of nylon cording. Tip: It's easier to measure one strand using a ruler and use that strand as a guide to measure the rest of the strands.
• Taking each of the strands, tie an overhand knot 1-2" away from one end.
• Group the four strands together and make an overhand knot about 6" away from one end. Tip: Pull individual strands to tighten the knot.
• Clip your work to the clipboard, just above the knot you created. Separate the strands into two groups with two strands in each group.
• Now here comes the special knot to create your rope. It's called the double chain knot. Taking your left group, bring it over and under your right group and then through the loop you created. Pull to tighten. Leave the left group on the left. Now take the right group and bring it over and under your left group and through the loop you created. Pull to tighten. You just created the double chain knot. Continue knotting until you reach about 16".
• Make an overhand knot right after your last double chain knot. Now taking each of the strands, tie an overhand knot about 6" away from the overhand knot you just created.
• You can leave you necklace as a simple rope, or you can add a pendant. Using a pair of pliers, attach your pendant bail or jump ring to the center of your necklace.
