I have often been asked how I get my knots so nice. I will have to confess when I first started I turned to my up-line all the time for help. Now after a thousand swaps or so I can finally tie a good knot. I thought that maybe if I showed you step by step it would help.
I think the biggest thing that helps me is I usually tie the knot when it is still connected to the roll of ribbon. This makes it easy to always tie it correctly because I only have one end of the ribbon to work with.
Step 1- So first I place my ribbon under the idem I am going to tie the knot on.
Step 7- Your finished knot. I believe this is called a square not, but I’m not sure. You think I would know since I have 4 boys and they are in scouts. I have found that when I tie a knot like this the ends both go down. If I want them to go up I just tie it upside down. On of the keys to a perfect knot is to keep the ribbon nice and flat through each step.
