This is a Chinese knot called a Pan Chang knot which brings good luck to those who wear it. This is a great gift for someone as it is fairly easy, intricate, and beautiful. You could also just make one for yourself because they are very comfortable to wear. If you want to make it extra lucky, the traditional color is red, but any color looks good.
There are only a few materials, all of which are easy to get.
- Styrofoam block or foam board
- Sewing Pins
- 2 yards of sring for the ring (approximatly 4.5 yards for a bracelet)
-- yarn, leather, silk, hemp, or paracord would all work to tie it
- Clear nail polish or super glue
Yep, that's it!
