Blaze Bar

Blaze Bar

Description:  The Blaze Bar looks similar to a double Square Knot sennit, but is tied differently.  It shows what you can do with two colors.

To use this design for Micro-Macrame jewelry, you can use 2mm size material like Satin or Paracord. 

It's wide enough to be used as a belt, or for other types of projects featuring long sennits.


Size 550 Paracord was used in the example shown. When using this material, you need to prepare it in a specific way.  

Please read Cord Preparation for details about how to prepare Paracord properly. The instructions are near the bottom of that page.


I found this knot on the Fusion Knots website

To practice, you two two cords folded in half and secured to your board.  Mentally number the four cords. 

The working cords are cords 1 and 4.  


Cord 4

Step 1: Move working cord 4 to the left, passing over cord 3 and under cord 2.

Pass it over working cord 1.


Cord 1

Step 2: Move working cord 1 to the right.  Pass it over cord 2 and under cord 3 (diagonally).

Pass it under - over working cord 4, in the area where it curves.

Tighten the knot by pulling on the working cords, while holding cords 2 and 3 straight.


Cord 4

Step 3:  Move working cord 4, which is now on the left, under - over - under the other three cords, heading right.


Cord 1

Step 4: Move working cord 1, which is now on the right, under cord 3 and over cord 2.

Pass it over -under working cord 4 where it curves.



Step 5:  Tighten the knot firmly Cords 2 and 3 should be pulled straight (with tension) as you tighten.

Each knot in the Blaze Bar has two heads, so it resembles two SK linked together. 

  Step 6: Repeat steps 1 and 2 to start the next knot.

The path of cord 4 is shown in yellow, and cord 1 is shown in white.  Both cords are diagonal, which is fine.


Step 7:  Repeat steps 3  - 5.

To continue, repeat steps 1 - 5 several times, until the sennit is the size you want.

Square Knot

Step 8: Tie a regular Square Knot to finish the Blaze Bar. 

Finish off the ends in the manner most appropriate for your project and material.
