Description: Endless Falls is
a simple decorative knot that's often taught in
children's groups, such as Girl Scouts. It can
be used to make bracelets, pet collars and
leashes, belts, and similar projects.
The primary color will be seen on the front and
back. The second color will form a single
row of loops along the sides of the sennit,
which resemble stitching. As you create
the sennit, you will be viewing the BACK of
it. The front is seen when you turn it
over (see image above).
The best way to start the sennit is with a
loop, so this is included in the instructions.
Bracelet is an easy project for kids
