Pagoda Knot

 Pagoda Knot


Description: The Pagoda Knot is based on the sacred architectural designs commonly seen in Asian temples and places of worship.

It's a beautiful decorative knot that incorporates elements of the Celtic Triangle Knot along with woven elements.

This knot makes a great Macrame pendant, since the ends come out at the top. In the image above, it is loosely tightened, so you can see the design more clearly.

Paracord was used in the example shown.  When using this material, melt the ends with a flame to prepare it for knotting.


This knot is in Decorative Fusion Knots, by JD Lenzen.

Fusion Knots

First Loop   Step 1: Create the first counter-clockwise loop in the center of a 36-inch cord.

The working end is at the top, and the standing end on the right should be secured.

Second Loop   Step 2: Make a second counter-clockwise loop, so it rests above Loop 1 as shown.

The working end should now be heading left to right.

Third Loop   Step 3: Make the third counter-clockwise loop, positioning it to the right of Loop 2.

The working end should now be heading downward.
Pass Right End Into Loop 4  

Step 4: The fourth counter-clockwise loop should be positioned to the right of Loop 1, and below Loop 3. The design should look like a square.

Pass the working end (right) under the standing end (left), so they are crossed.


Right End Through Loop   Step 5: Pass the end that is now on the right, through Loop 4 under - over (from below).

Left End Through Loop   Step 6: Pass the end that's now resting on the left, through Loop 1 over - under (from the top).

Flip the Knot Upside Down  

Step 7: Flip the knot, so Loops 1 and 4 are at the top, and the entire design is upside down.

Bring right end down, so it passes over Loop 3.


Weave Through Loop 3  

Step 8: Bring the left end down to Loop 2, and pass under it.

Weave it through Loop 3, under - over - under the three segments.


Weave Through Loop 2  

Step 9: Move the right end again, passing under the left end, in the lower central area of the Pagoda knot.

Weave it through Loop 2, over - under - over the three segments.


Flip and Tighten the Knot  

Step 10: Flip the design again, so the ends are at the top.

Tighten the Pagoda Knot gradually, removing the slack from the loops in the order they were made.
