The oblong knot is one attractive knot!
As far as knots go, the oblong knot does not seem that easy to make. But I was glad to find a decent tutorial on it and with a few added steps, this tutorial is just what is needed to easily make the knot. I think the oblong knot can become a valuable asset in your knot repertoire. It has some pretty obvious uses, such as zipper pulls and as a knot to finish projects with.
It is a nice decorative knot to know and I am very proud to be able to pass this knowledge to you, so you can make some amazing projects with it!
The knot itself is made out of a single piece of cord and by the way it is made, it resembles many Chinese knots.
In the tutorial below you will be able to make the knot in a step by step way. The red lines mark what has changed since the previous image so you can keep better track of it.
