 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 cord A will rest on top of those made with the other working cord.  This is considered the primary cord, so as you learn this technique, focus on it's position.

In the example shown, cord A is turquoise and cord B is purple.

 

Stitching

There is also a holding cord, which is orange in the example shown.

It will form a series of loops resembling "stitching" along the sides of the sennit.



As you can see from the images, this is a thick sennit that can be used for items like Paracord bracelets, pet collars and leashes, belts, and similar projects.

The instructions include a loop, which is optional if you prefer to start the sennit in a different way.  

2018 Update:  The images and text have been changed, so contact me if you need the original page.




This knot is listed on the Fusion Knots website.

Preparation and Loop


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

When using this design in a project, the cords should be at least 10 times the finished length of the item you wish to make. 

Add extra length to cord A if you plan to make a button knot for a closure. 




Loop

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

Slide the holding cord under it, and secure it so the centers line up.

Cross the two halves of the holding cord right over left, arranged on top of cord A.


 
 
Fold

Fold both halves of cord A backward, passing over the crossed area of the holding cord. 

Bring them through the space between the two halves, then under the crossed area as you pull them toward you. 



Cord B

Step 2:  Fold working cord B in half and pass it through the loop made by the holding cord.

It should rest under cord A.



Move in Front



Move the folded portion of cord B over cord A, so it rests in front of it.




Tighten

Tighten by pulling on the holding cord first, followed by both working cords. Adjust the size of the loop made by cord A

Make the loop 3/4-inch in size if you plan to tie a button knot at the other end of the sennit.

Webbed Endless Falls - Row 1


For each row, you are making a loop with each half of the working cords, passing them around the holding cord so they rest in a specific position.  

Important: Pay close attention to the position of cord A.  It MUST remain under cord B at all times, or the design won't work.


Arrange

Step 3:  Move both halves of cord A under cord B, pulling them outward to the right and left, as shown by the arrows in this image.



Mentally label each half of the working cords as follows:
  • Cord A (Right Half) = A1
  • Cord A (Left Half) = A2
  • Cord B (Right Half) = B1
  • Cord B (Left Half) = B2

These cords will pass through the spaces with the same labels (see next image).




Spaces

Make a LARGE loop by crossing the two halves of the holding cord right over left, arranging it on top of the working cords.  Secure the crossing point.

Mentally label the four spaces as shown. 



Cord A Right

Step 4:  Move the right half of cord A (A1) backward, passing over the crossed area of the holding cord.

Bring it through the space labeled A1. Pull it under the holding cord, then toward you to complete the loop.

Make sure it passes under the portion of the holding cord that leads to the end.
 


Designer's Tip: Another way to look at this important part of the Webbed Endless Falls is that the right half of cord A needs to pass through the space to the right of the portion coming from the previous knot.

Cord B will pass through the space between the two working cords.



Cord B Right

Move the right half of cord B (B1) backward, passing over the crossed area of the holding cord.

Bring it through the space labeled B1. Pull it under the holding cord, then toward you to complete the loop.

You can see the space better in the image for step 3. 



Cord A Left

Step 5:  Move the left half of cord A (A2) backward, passing over the crossed area of the holding cord.

Bring it through the space labeled A2. Pull it under the holding cord, then toward you to complete the loop.

Make sure it passes under the portion of the holding cord that leads to the end.



Cord B Left

Move the left half of cord B (B2) backward, passing over the crossed area of the holding cord.

Bring it through the space labeled B2. Pull it under the holding cord, then toward you to complete the loop.




Tighten

The best way to tighten Webbed Endless Falls is to pull both halves of the holding cord first.

Then tighten both parts of cord A, followed by cord B.

Webbed Endless Falls - Row 2



Arrange

Step 6:  Move both halves of cord A under cord B.  Move cord B to the right and left, so that cord A is on the inside.

Mentally label the four parts as you did in the previous row (step 3).



Holding Cord

Make a loop with the holding cord, crossing right over left, resting on top of the working cords.

Mentally label the spaces as shown in this image. 

These labels are different than step 3 because the cords have switched places.


 
Right Loops

Step 7: Repeat step 4 with the cords in their new arrangement. 

C
ord B passes through the space labeled B1.

Cord A passes through the space between the two working cords, labeled A1.



Left Loops

Repeat step 5 with the cords in their new positions.

Cord B passes through B2 as you make the loop. 

Cord A passes through A2, which is between the two cords.  

Tighten the loops firmly.

Complete the Sennit



Odd Rows

Step 8: Repeat steps 3 - 5 for the odd numbed rows (3, 5, 7, 9) as you continue making the Webbed Endless Falls. 

Cord B will be on the inside position.

Remember to make sure cord A is under cord B.



Even Rows

Repeat steps 6 and 7 when you create the even numbered rows (4, 6, 8, 10).

Cord A will be on the inside position.




Finish

Step 9:  When the sennit is finished, you will need to tie a finishing knot to secure the cords. 

This image shows a Square Knot tied with the holding cord, which is the best option.


Front

Turn over the sennit to see the front of the Webbed Endless Falls design.
