Description: The Stevedore
Knot is considered a stopper knot
because it prevents the cord from slipping out
of another knot. It's also used to prevent
the end of the cord from unraveling.
This knot is used in Macrame to finish the
ends of cords in the final steps, or for
preparation. It's a good way to
prepare cords that are slippery, such as when
you use Parachute cord or Satin (nylon).
This is a great knot to use when making fringe,
since it has a strong hold and does not untie
Since it can be tied anywhere on a cord, you
can also use it just for decoration.
Update: Due to the fact that this
knot is tied near the end of a cord, I have
changed the instructions to show that
process. The steps are slightly different,
so if you need the original page, please contact
