Flower Pendant

Flower Pendant

Description: This Flower Pendant features loops of one color along the edges that represent the petals. A second color is added for contrast.

When you are finished, the remaining portion of one or both cords is used to make your favorite necklace design.

This is an easy project, suitable for older children, teens and adults.



This design is on the Fusion Knots website, under the name "Desert Flower Medallion."

The design described below has been changed slightly, but the overall process is the same.

Supplies Needed:

  • 2 mm to 4 mm cord material (two colors)
  • Project Board and pins


The length of the cords depends on whether you need one or both of them to make the necklace.  Since you fold the cords in half, you will either have one cord on each side or two on each side.  

Two on each side:  Determine how much material you need for just the necklace, then add at least 60 inches extra length for the pendant (both cords).

One on each side:  Determine how much material you need for the necklace, then add at least 60 inches extra material for working cord A. 

Cord B should be at least 45 inches long, since it will be finished off. 
Fold Both Cords  

Fold the working cord in half (cord A) and secure it at the center.

Secure cord B under the working cord, making sure the centers of both cords line up.


Cross B  

Step 2: Cross the two halves of cord B left over right.


Use Left Half  

Step 3: Move the left half of working cord A backward, passing it over the crossed area of cord B.

Bring it between the two halves of the working cord.

Pass it under the crossed area as you pull it forward.


Shorten Loop  

Step 4: Tighten the knot by pulling on the left half of cord A first. Tighten cord B by pulling on each half.

Reduce the size of the loop at the top to 1/4-inch (or smaller) by pulling on the right half of cord A.

See information below



Designer's Tip: The size of the loop depends on the material you are using.

The loop only needs to be large enough for two cords to pass through it, so make it as small as possible.


Upside Down  

Step 5: Turn the knots upside down so you are working in the back.

Repeat steps 2 - 4, tightening the second knot so it's close to the back of the first one.


Step 5, continued:  Turn the knot over again, then repeat steps 2 - 4.

As you continue repeating the same process to make the rest of the Flower Pendant, always use the left half of the working cord to make the loops.

3 Inches of Knots  

Step 6: Repeat steps 2 - 5 several times, until the sennit is 3 inches long.

This will give you a 1.5-inch pendant, since you will be folding it to form an oval shape.


Turn the sennit so V-shapes formed by color B are face up, with the color A loops along the sides.


Pass Ends Thru Loop   Step 7: Pass the two ends of the working cord through the loop you left at the other end.

Pull them snugly to form the circular shape.


Step 8: Turn the Flower Pendant sideways slightly, so you have access to both cords again.

Cross both halves of the color B cord over the working cords, as you did before.


Two Loops  

Step 9: Use both halves of the working cord to make the final loops. The process is the same:

Bring them over the crossed area, and down behind it, passing between the two halves.

Completed Pendant  

Step 10: Pull all four ends firmly to tighten.

You can now use the 4 ends to make the necklace, or weave 2 of them into the back of the pendant to finish them off.
