Sometimes when using thicker cords like leather or waxed cotton, you do not want to use a clasp, but instead, want to make a necklace that can slip over the head, or a bracelet that will go over the wider part of your hand, and then make the necklace or bracelet smaller to fit, or adjustable in size. One way to do this is to make slip knots, so that you can adjust the length. Here we will learn to make a simple slip knot. Then we will learn to make a fancier slip knot. We will discuss pros, cons and alternatives.
