This tutorial shows how you can make the celtic button knot with step by step photos. A single cord is used for tying this knot. This knot is used as buttons in bracelets, at the ends of decorative fringes etc.
Make a loop with the cord as shown below.
Make another similar loop on top of it as shown below.
Now pass the end of the cord by weaving it above and then below as shown by the yellow arrow.
Weaving the end of the cord.
Pull through but not too tight. Stop when there is a 3rd loop formed.
Now pass the end of the cord over the right most cord and under the next cords and then come up as shown by the yellow arrow.
Next pull the two ends apart and this will tighten the knot.
But at this point, the knot will not be perfect.
Starting from one end cord, start tightening each loop of the knot one by one in a systematic way till you reach the other end of the cord. And you will have a celtic button knot that looks like this.
Missy is happy that her goat has a bracelet too. To make this small baby bracelet, I used 1 meter long cord. You can find the bracelet tutorial here.
