Decorative Chain Grommet

Introduction: Decorative Chain Grommet

This grommet is a sequence of and overhand knots.

I used 6' of 1/4" cotton sash cord for the grommet shown. It its tied around a 1" diameter core.

There is about 1' of cord to be trimmed.

Step 1: To Start

Bring working end (WE) under the standing end forming a bight.

Step 2: Step 2: Tie the First ↑ Overhand Knot

Bring WE down across the bight.

Step 3:

Bring WE down across the same bight going under, over, under.

Notice that the two bights of the overhand knot are on the top.

Step 4: Step 4: Tie the First ↓ Overhand Knot

Bring WE up across the bight just formed.

Step 5:

Bring WE up across the same bight going under, over, under.

Notice that the two bights of the overhand knot are on the bottom.

Step 6:

Repeat step 2.

Step 7:

Repeat step 3 completing another ↑ overhand knot.

Step 8:

Repeat step 4.

Step 9:

Repeat step 5 completing another ↓ overhand knot.

Continue in this manner until you have reached the desired length.

Note: you must end with a ↑ overhand knot

Step 10: Connecting the Ends

I am showing this process using a cord of a contrasting color.

Bring the two ends close together.

Step 11:

Fold the old standing end up and bring the last bight tied over the first bight.

Step 12:

Bring the new WE down going. over, under (red dot), over.

The knot is complete

Step 13:

Now begins the doubling process.

Take either end and follow its neighboring strand around the knot

Step 14:

Tighten the grommet against whatever you are using and trim the ends.

OR

If you use this grommet as a bracelet :

On the inside of the grommet tie each end to its neighboring strand using a constrictor knot.
