Here is a different heart shaped design I have been meaning to share with you all since the new year, having made many of these little cuties with my Design and Make Students at Belmont Preparatory School for Valentines Day.
This designs plays with Larks Head Knots and shape created by the tightness of the knots. The closer together the larks head knots, the more curvature we see and the straight appearance comes from the knots being spaced further apart.
It can be adapted to a few different sizes, you can even interlock two together if you wanted to in the same design. If you give it a try, let me know what you think.
Although a Larks Head Knot is a beginner level knot, the starting cord attachments that join the two heart halves together is a tricky one to knot. Therefore I could suggest this requires more experience than complete beginners. Please let me know how you find it.
- Keyring of choice
- 3mm cotton cord (4.5m)
- 1 x 200cm (working cord)
- 1 x 100cm (wrapping knot)
- 3 x 50cm (inner cords)
