Step 1: Materials

For this project, you will need:

1. Rope (I used a Yellow robe of 20m long)

2. Band strips

3. 2 carabiner

Step 2: Making Hinge Knot

This is the first knot we make to get strated with the swing. This knot ensures that we can fold the swing, so as to provide more space

Step 3: Seat Swing

In the making of the seat of the swing, we begin by creating a chain sinnet around the hinge loops of the knot.

Step 4: Dubble Chain Sennit

In this step we do the knots with a dubble loop. Therefore we get a stronger construction, which is also wider.

Step 5: Ends Seat Swing

At the end of the seat of the swing we make a basic loop.

Step 6: Height Adjustment

To adjust the height we make along both sides 3 loops where we can later snap or carabiner.

Step 7: Connecting Carabiners

To connect the carabiners we make a double eight knot at the end of our rope. The double eight knot is one of the simplest knots to form a loop in the rope.
