    Gosh, thank you for correcting me, PD! You'd think I never did macrame! Had I looked up a photo of half hitch and double half hitch, I'd have realized my error right away! I'll edit the previous post, too.

    I suspect you were thinking of larkshead knots, but I don't use those either. They look too asymmetrical to me.

    I had to go online and look up the knots lol I always thought I was tying an overhand when finishing but now I think it's a double half hitch ? lol Now I'm off to read up on larks head knots !

    And who knew there is an International Guild of Knot Tyers Forum ???

    And while on the subject of knots.. can someone explain the knot that Kevin shows on POJ as the pearl knot he uses as for the life of me I cannot figure it out. I do have a terrible time with this sort of drawing .. knots etc .. I really need to see something on video.

    Sorry ! I wasn’t clear . It’s not a video it’s a drawing of the knot used . And of course now I can’t find it . I’ll keep searching , I just saw it again last week and was trying to figure out how the knot was tied as it didn’t look like half hitches ...but again ..I’m terrible with this sort of spacial challenge ��

    I think it's a double overhand knot. I use this knot when there is a larger than normal drill hole that I'm afraid the regular overhand knot will get lost inside.

    The POJ diagram doesn't make sense to me either.

    That's not a knot.

    Well I’m relieved that it’s not just me that doesn’t understand the diagram. I thought I was missing out on something!

    [ATTACH]74384 Iím pretty sure POJ was trying to illustrate a classic square knot. Should have looked like this.

    That looks right!
    Does anyone here make a square knot when stringing?

    But when would it be used? Perhaps when finishing a classic strand, come back through the last pearl and make the double knot over the thread between then cut with a dab of glue added? I've seen a number of strands where the clasp has pulled loose and I have thought because the final knot pulled loose. The thread wasn't knotted back through multiple pearls, only one. Thank you for the corrected diagram la_c. I don't think I use that knot. Anyone??
