The Chinese Endless Knot means health, safety and security, and good luck in life and career. People like to make this knot as a phone pendant, a bracelet knot, a tibetan malas knot, and as a bead bracelet knot. Many mala bead bracelets and 108 bead malas are finished with this decorative and beautiful knot.


Note: The visual instructions below show a cord with different colors so you can see how to make the knot. You only need one strand to make the knot!
