Celtic Button Knot





Introduction: Celtic Button Knot

This video will show how to tie a Celtic Button Knot, using a length of paracord for the demonstration. The 'Celtic Button Knot' looks similar to the 'Lanyard Knot', but is tied along a single strand of cord instead of using two strands. They can be useful as decorative stopper/terminal knots. This knot is also found in 'The Ashley Book of Knots', knot #545.

Could this knot be used with 1/8" diameter woven wire?

Maybe. It would depend on how flexible the wire is.

It's actually fairly flexible. When you look at it, it doesn't look flexible, but it moves really well.

Different gauges of wire are often used for jewelry making (braided/twisted/knotted/knitted). The thinner wire is usually more easily bent and worked where the thicker it gets may require tools to bend and twist it into shape.

Thank you so much

I needed some great knots to use for my handbags this Chinese and Celtic knots are the perfect things and the instructions are priceless!

I thiught i was going to have to find a knot tying Boy Scout

Llevo mucho tiempo intentando aprender a hacer estas bolas ¿nudos célticos? ¿cómo se esconden los extremos de los cordones? Gracias.

I made a pace counter using the doubling method (bigger beads makes it easier for gloved hands in winter) and with some leftover Halloween beads from my sons I made a bolo style tie.

These are cool!!! ...but I'm having a hard time figuring out how you did the celtic knots and then attached them to the paracord. or did you do the knots on the paracord because it looks like they can slide. I'm new at this and appreciate your assistance. Thanks so much!

Thanks. They do slide and I was planning on posting how I do them. It's easier than you think. I'll post inside of a couple weeks.... with spring coming and planting 'round the corner I'd better get on it!
