Description: The Lizard Tail
is similar to the Chain
Sennit in the way it's
related to the Zipper
A series of bights are passed into one another,
alternating between two colors. The
position of the working ends and the angle of
the bights are important details you need to pay
What makes this pattern so unique is the fact
that it is not flat like other knotted or
braided designs. It has three surfaces,
all of them attractive. The front is shown
in the image above (see last image, which shows
all 3 sides).
You can use this design for items like leashes
and belts, or as part of plant hanger
designs. A Macrame wreath can be made with
this technique, simply by using thick material
and linking the ends with additional knots.
Unfortunately, it's difficult to start this
design with a loop. It's better to tie the ends
together as a closure, or tie additional
knots. A sliding clasp can easily be
made with the ends of the two cords.
