Beginner's guide - How to personalise with slipknot chains
Sketch Out Name
On a piece of paper, sketch out the name using our alphabet chart as a guide.
Tip: For an easier option, why not have the name in all capital case? (Note: this requires making different sized slipknot chains)
Create Slipknot Chain
Make a slipknot.
- Use your thumb and index finger to hold the tail end (1) firmly.
- Use your other 3 fingers to hold both (1) and (2).
- Hold (1) and (2) firmly in your left hand so it doesn’t go loose.
- Don't forget you may need to double back on some letters.
Tip: If your loop ends up being super huge after each slipknot, just readjust by pulling (2).
Pin & Sew
Use your initial sketch as a guide.
