Chinese Knotting can be tied with any cord that is somewhat stiff, can hold up to the pulling and working of tightening the knot and has a simple appearance that does not interfere with the beauty of the final piece.
Our newest addition to the Chinese Knotting Cord Family is a perfect cord for chinese knotting and is often used to tie these knots. It is soft but durable and measures 3mm x 1mm. It is a flat cord made from nylon and its ends can be sealed with a flame or thread burner.
It is somewhat hard to find and comes in only a limited number of colors but we love to use this cord for both knotting and bead weaving! Try our Pathway Tutorial!
Note: This cord is not soutache. It is a different cord.
