3 pass Spanish ring knot

3 pass Spanish ring knot

In this article I show you how to tie a 3 pass Spanish ring knot.

We have already covered the 2 pass Spanish ring knot. The 3 pass version is in my opinion nicer looking. The knot itself has a decorative role in many a project.

As a refresher, the Spanish ring knot is a gaucho knot that only has a “V” shape runing down the center. As such it resembles a flat braid.

The knot has many applications. Wrapping it around a coin or a concho can make a nice medallion.

When you reach your standing end again, it will have a paralel cord next to it. We split these to by going under three cords.
