Crown Knot Steps

Figure #1:  Hold all cords upside down. Divide cords into 4 equal groups. Put one group behind thumb. This is group 1. Number other groups 2, 3 and 4, counter clockwise.

Figure #2:  Pick up group 1 and lay over group 2. Drop group 1 as you pick up group 2.

Figure #3:  Lay group 2 over group 3. Drop group 2 and pick up group 3.

Figure #4:  Lay group 3 over group 4. Drop group 3 and pick up group 4. Take group 4 over the top and put down directly through the hole where your thumb is. Remove your thumb and tighten each group separately.

Figure #5:  This is how one finished knot should look.

Here’s how my crown knot looks.

    I have searched and searched for an old book showing how to make a standing horse or giraffe using the
    large crown knot for the body only making it smaller and smaller for neck and head and legs –I have one from long ago I bought at a craft show and could even send a picture–I think your video will help because I had only used the crown knot starting with a ring and pulling down and had not held it like your vedio thanks
