CARRICK BEND MAT
This knot was originally used by sailors to prevent chafing around ring bolts on a ship deck, and to pad the landing of falling cargo. Today, it is mostly decorative. Who says something can’t be useful and aesthetically pleasing?
When you might use it:
• Coasters, hot pads and table mats
• Larger versions make good stair treads, floor mats or chair covers
• Framed decorations, hanging decorations, or jewellery
