Here are instructions for making a Butterfly Knot:
|Figure 1||Figure 2|
To make a BK, 4 cords are used – two knotters, and two fillers.
Step 1: Make 1 SK
Step 2: Leave a gap in your knots, then make another SK [see figure1]
Step 3: Using your thumb and forefinger, push your 2nd SK up your knot bearers so it sits snug against your first SK. This creates the “butterfly” or “picot”.
