This tutorial shows how you can weave the quad stitch/ biscuit Knot.
Baskets made with this knot grow faster than baskets woven with other knots. So if you are looking for a quick project, this one is for you.
Knowing how to weave the box knot / square knot will make it easier to learn this quad stitch. So here is the tutorial for the box knot.
We will need 4 pieces of wire to make this knot. I am using 2 yellow and 2 pink wires. Fold two wires as shown below.
Wrap the third wire around the two vertical loops.
Fold the yellow wires up. They both will resemble the English letter N.
Weave the pink wire through the white loops. It will now resemble English letter Z.
Bring both the yellow wires back down.
We repeat the same process again for the fourth wire. Wrap the next pink wire around the loops.
Release the yellow wires so they can go back up.
Weave the pink wire through the loops.
Tighten the knot.
Quad stitch or biscuit knot.
Adding the second biscuit knots
Follow the same procedure shown above. The pink wires will be the running wires.
As you can see, the second knot will be slightly at a lower level that the first one.
Joining two quad / biscuit knots
To join two biscuit knots without running wire, we place two knots next to each other and make knots with wires that intersect each other.
Colorful variations of quad knot/ Biscuit knot
In the demo above, I used two yellow and two pink wires. The yellow wires traveled vertically and pink wires traveled left to right. We got a mixed colored square knot.
Appearance of knot when one yellow and one pink wire travel vertically (and horizontally).
4 different colors used to make this knot
Back side of this knot will look like this.
The same can be made with plastic lace / lanyard / scoubidou wire/ paracord wire.
I have posted a video tutorial for this knot. You can watch it here
