Kinky Lovers Knot

 
 
Kinky Lover's Knot
 

The Kinky Lovers Knot is a unique historical knot rarely seen in Macrame patterns.

It's sometimes called the Double Figure Eight knot.

You can use this decorative knot to make a simple necklace, by adjusting the loop at the top so it's large enough to fit over your head.

This knot makes a nice clasp as well.

 

 

I found this knot in Decorative Fusion Knots written by J. D. Lenzen.

The video gallery contains tutorials for a variety of very unique and appealing designs.

Loop With Left Half  

Step 1: Fold a cord in half and secure it at the center.  Make a counter-clockwise loop with the left half of the cord.

Pass the end under the vertical portion to make the crossing point on the left.

 

 
First Figure Eight  

Step 2: Move the left end around in a clockwise direction, passing over the vertical segment, above the first loop.

Bring it down to the first loop, and pass it through under - over (from below).   Secure the end on the left.




Design Tip:  This is the first figure eight design for the Kinky Lovers Knot.  

In the next few steps I will be focusing on the two loops, which are upper and lower.  


 
Use Right Half  

Step 3: Bring the right half of the cord down to the lower loop you made in step 1.

Pass it through under - over (from below).

 


Loop

Important:  There should still be a pin at the center.  Make adjustments to the size of that portion of the knot.  

That's the loop resting above the tightened area in this image.

 
Secure it in two areas, so when you complete the next two steps, the size won't change.
 
 
Pass End Into Top Loop  

Step 4: Rotate the right end counter-clockwise, to form the lower loop of the second figure eight.

Pass it through the upper loop of the first knot, from the top (over - under).  Bring it under the vertical segment to the right.

 

 
Pass End Into Bottom Loop  

Step 5: To complete the second figure eight, bring the right end down to the lower loop of the first figure eight.

Pass through it over - under (from the top).

 

 
Kinky Lover's Knot   Step 6:  Gradually remove the slack to tighten the knot.
