Bumblebee Knot

 Bumblebee Knot


Description: The Bumblebee Knot features the interlaced weaving common to all Celtic knots.

This decorative knot is easy to tie and can be used as a focal decoration for a Macrame bracelet or belt design. 

The ends come out from the sides, and can be attachment points for other cords.

In the example shown, I used Paracord, which needs to be prepared and finished by melting the tips with a flame.


I found this knot on the Fusion Knots website.

Loop 1   Step 1: Cut one cord, at least 36 inches long.

Make the first loop at the center, crossing left over right. Secure the loop to your board.


Loop 2   Step 2: Make loop 2 using the end now on the left, rotating in a clockwise direction.

Pass the end under to make the crossing point, as you complete the loop.

Loop 3   Step 3:  Use the end now on the right to make the third loop, in a counter-clockwise direction.

Pass over to make the crossing point.

Cross Ends   Step 4: Cross the two ends left over right.

Large Counter-Clockwise Loop  

Step 5: Move the left end (now on the right) up the right side, passing under loop 3.

Pass it over loop 1, heading right to left.

Pass it under loop 2, as you bring it down to the lower left.  Secure it to your board.

Step 6: Move the right end (now on the left) up to loop 2.

Weave it over - under - over, as you bring it towards the top.


Weave Through Loop 1  
Step 7:
Move the right end up to loop 1, and then weave it under - over - under the three segments.


Weave Through Loop 3   Step 8:  Bring the right end down to loop 3.

Weave it over - under - over, as you bring it towards the lower right.

  Step 9: Tighten the Bumblebee Knot by removing the slack and reducing the size of each loop. You can tighten it completely, or leave some space so the design is more obvious.
