Sorry I had to cut it short yesterday but I honestly think that presenting this project in 2 parts was the best way to go considering there’s so many pictures involved. So let’s get started with Part II of this necklace DIY project: How to make a square knot slip closure but first check previous post if you’ve just joined us today and missed yesterday’s post.
Start by tying the 1 ft cord around around the overlapping cord ends of the necklace. At this point I think a video tutorial wll be more visually effective than a bunch of pictures of me tying square knots so here is a 4 minute video I found on YouTube on how to make a square knot slip closure for the necklace. It’s fairly easy and you’ll get the hang of it within 1 minute of the video.
Cut off the excess cord on both ends and use glue to secure the ends from fraying and unraveling the knot. Now you have a one of kind necklace with a an adjustable closure that allows you to wear the pendant high or low on your chest.
I had a great time putting this project together. Being a New Yorker in all I’m proud to wear a small piece of NYC history.
