Secure one end to your project board, on your

items like pendants. The crook of the
loop should be on the right.
Pass the working end under
the secured end to form the crossing
point on the left.
To make this knot
larger, start off with a longer loop, at least double
the size you want to end up with.
The size of the loop from right
to left is considered the length,
since you will turn it later.
You will need to do additional rows of weaving to
fill in a large loop.
Step 2: Move the
working end to the right,
next to the crook of the first loop.
Pass it through the loop, weaving under
- over the two segments. The
end should be heading downward.
Step 3: Bring the
working end back to the left
side of the Panel knot.
Weave through under

of weaving takes place at the center.
Alternate over and under the seven
segments, as you bring the end upward.
Step 8: Turn the knot
so both ends are at the top.
