Introduction: Barrel Knot
The barrel knot is a simple but attractive stopper knot at the end of a cord.
You will need a hemostat, forceps or needle nose pliers.
It is easier to tie if a small diameter dowel or metal rod is used.
Wrap cord around rod one time.
And a third time.
Go through the center of the knot with your hemostat and grab the cord end.
Pull the end through the knot.
Tighten on the rod as far as possible. Remove the rod and complete tightening if necessary.
Step 7: Extended Barrel Knot
Wrap the cord end around the rod an additional time (or more) and as before grab the cord end with the hemostat and . . . .
. . . . pull the cord end through the knot.
Tighten the knot on the rod. remove the rod and complete tightening if necessary.
