Clove hitch knot
Begin by selecting the outer most cord – this is the lead cord. Lay it diagonally across the remaining working cords.
Selecting the first working cord, loop it over and then through the middle of the two cords, as shown. Pull to tighten.
Repeat Step 2, using the same cords. The clove hitch knot is complete.
You can then continue to work the remaining cords and tie a rows of clove hitch knots to create patterns.
