Step 1

Start with the two ends of your cord. I am using two different colors for demonstration purposes. Cord A represents the left side of your piece and cord B represents the right side of your piece.

Step 2

Cross cord A over cord B.

Step 3

Wrap cord A behind and around cord B.

Step 4

Wrap cord A behind and around cord B again. This will create two wraps.

Step 5

Loop the end of cord A back through the two loops that you created.

Step 6

Pull cord A taut.

Step 7

One side of your adjustable knot is finished.

Step 8

To start the second side of your adjustable knot, wrap cord B behind and around cord A.

Step 9

Wrap cord B behind and around cord A again. This will create two wraps.

Step 10

Loop the end of cord B back through the two loops that you created.

Step 11

Pull cord B taut.

Step 12

The second side of your adjustable knot is now finished.

Step 13

Congratulations! You now have an adjustable knot!

Step 14

To now adjust your piece from long to short, pull on both ends of your cord.

Step 15

The knots will slide over the cord.
