2 strand wall knot

2 strand wall knot

In this tutorial I demonstrate the 2 strand wall knot.

This knot is very handy. It can be used in making keychains, lanyards and even bracelets.

I have in the past shown you how to tie a multi strand wall knot, but the 2 strand version is harder to figure out.

It looks similar to the snake knot and basically fills the same role. It does look different as well though, so in this quick tutorial I will demonstrate how to tie it.

For those who use the ABoK, the knot is listed under number 775, while the multi strand version is listed under 729.

With all that said, let’s get a piece of cord ready and tie a few wall knots!

The tutorial

Fold your cord in half, then make a loop with the right strand.

Twist it in a clockwise direction to get the loop facing the right.
