How to Make a Butterfly Knot
(a.k.a Picot Knot)
The butterfly knot or picot knot (BK) is a knot commonly used in hemp jewelry.
It's really easy to make. Use it to give a lacy, airy look to a piece of jewelry or knotwork.
Note: Before you can make a BK, you need to know how to make a HK (half knot) and a SK.
Here are instructions for making a Butterfly Knot:

To make a BK, 4 cords are used - two knotters, and two fillers.
Step 1: Make 1 SK
Step 2: Leave a gap in your knots, then make another SK [see figure1]
Step 3: Using your thumb and forefinger, push your 2nd SK up your knot bearers so it sits snug against your first SK. This creates the "butterfly" or "picot".
