Projects

I find this knot very useful for tying multiple strands of yarn together, the ends of braids, or multiple cords together.

In my Double Knot Scarf pattern the knot is used to tie the two scarves together. The knots of the scarf are the decorative details!

As you can see I held the two scarves together and then secured them with the overhand knot.

Here is another example of two pieces held together with the overhand knot. The braids that make up the clasp of the Ball Button Crossbody Bag are secured with this knot.

The knot is then slipped over the “ball button” to close the purse.

The braid ties on the Summer Party Cardi are another example of a great use of the overhand knot. I used the knots at the end of the braids to keep the them from unraveling.

As you can see the overhand knot is very useful.
