    How to Tie a Slipknot for a Necklace

  1. 1

    Overlap the ends of the two pieces of cord by about 4 inches.

  2. 2

    Hold about 1 inch of the overlap together, one cord on top and one on the bottom.

  3. 3

    Tie a regular overhand knot around the bottom cord with the top cord. You should still have a few inches of the end of the bottom cord hanging out of the knot.

  4. 4

    Take the bottom cord and tie a regular overhand knot around the top cord. Tighten both knots.

  5. 5

    Try to slide both knots back and forth. Both knots should move freely to resize the necklace.

Tips and warnings

  • Don't tie the knots too tight! The knots will not slide freely.
