 Webbed Endless Falls


Webbed Endless Falls

 
Description:   The Webbed Endless Falls technique is formed with two working cords that are placed in alternate positions.  

The loops made by the dominant cord (blue) will rest on top of the ones from the second cord (brown). 

The third cord (red) is considered a holding cord, and will be seen along the edges of the sennit.

This decorative knot is suitable for Macrame belts, Key holders, Paracord bracelets and similar projects.  
 



This knot is listed on the Fusion Knots website

Fusion Knots




You need 3 cords of different colors to make the Webbed Endless Falls technique.  When practicing, cut the cords to 60 inches. 

To make something with this knot, the cords should be at least 12 times the finished length of the item you wish to make. 

Add extra length to the primary cord (A), if you plan to make a button knot for a closure. 



Fold Cord

Step 1:  Fold working cord A at the center, and secure it to your board.

Slide the holding cord under it and match the ends so it's centered.

Bring the holding cord in front of cord A and cross the ends right over left.


 
 
Space

Rotate both ends of cord A over the front of the crossed area of the holding cord.

Bring them down through the space between the left and right halves of cord A.  Pull the ends straight down so they fit between the two loops.



Cord B

Fold working cord B in half and pass it through the loop made by the holding cord, from the bottom up.

It should rest behind working cord A.



Move Forward

Move the folded area of cord B over the loop made by cord A, so it rests in front of it.

Tighten the entire knot, while adjusting the size of the loop made by cord A

Make the loop the size you need for a clasp, if you are planning to use one.



Cord A

Step 2:  Move the ends of cord A under cord B, pulling them to the right and left.


Important: The Webbed Endless Falls technique will not work out unless cord A is ALWAYS resting under cord B in steps 2 and 7.



Holding Cord

Cross the ends of the holding cord right over left, resting on top of the working cords.

Leave plenty of room to work.



Cord A Right

Step 3:  Move the right half of cord A over the crossed area of the holding cord.

Bring it through the space between cord A and the outer right curve of the holding cord

Pull it straight down so it passes behind the end of the holding cord. (see next image)
 


Another way to look at this important part of the Webbed Endless Falls is that the right half of cord A needs to rest to the right of the portion coming down from the previous knot (to the outside).

This applies to the right half of cord B, in the next step.



Cord B

Step 4:  Move the right half of cord B over the crossed area. 

Pass it through the space between cords B and A, just below where they cross. 

It needs to rest to the right of the portion coming down from the previous knot.



Left Loops

Step 5:  The left side loops of the Webbed Endless Falls follow the same pattern:

Left Color A passes through the space to the left of the portion coming from the previous knot.

Left Color B passes through the space between cords A and B (to the left of the part coming down).



Tighten

Step 6:  Tighten the knot by pulling on the two ends of the holding cord first.

Pull on each end of the working cords until the knot is firm.




Inside

Step 7:  Now it's time to reverse the direction of the Webbed Endless Falls.

Move the ends of cord A under cord B, towards each other.



Holding Cord

Step 8:  Cross the ends of the holding cord right over left, resting on top of the working cords.

The spaces where the ends of the working cords will pass in the next step are labeled A and B in this image.


 
Loops

Step 9:  The loops are made as in steps 3 - 5, except the colors are switched. 

The ends of cord B are passed through the spaces furthest to the left and right.
 
The ends of cord A are passed through the space between cords A and B.



Repeat

Step 10:  Tighten the second knot pulling the ends of the holding cord first, then the others.

Repeat steps 2 - 6, followed by 7 - 9. 

Continue repeating until the Webbed Endless Falls is the size you want, or you run out of material.

 

Flip Over

Turn over the sennit to see the completed design.  

To finish, use the 2 ends of the holding cord to tie a Square Knot around the other 4 ends.

Finish off cord B and use cord A to make a button knot if you need a clasp.
