  1. Love that you include the total measurement for the project. Could this be made with 4 mm cord. Or would it be much smaller . It is sometimes difficult to tell the difference between a 4 mm and a 5 mm. Depending where you buy. Ceri X

    1. Don’t worry, the difference isn’t too great between 4mm and 5mm. The thinner the rope, the less you use with each knot as its knotting around a thinner bunch of rope so you will be fine to follow the same measurements and may find you have a little more excess when your finished. Which is better than starting the project and running out of rope in the process. Goodluck. Ceri
