Title: Side-button knot tutorial

side-button knot tutorial

This tutorial uses a 4 lead, 5 bight TH as a base.  You can make it greater in diameter by adding extra over, under tucks at the beginning and then complete the base following the pattern described.
I added one extra over, under tuck in the first step to get a 4 lead, 9 bight base to make this bracelet.

The Bruce Grant in "How to Make Cowboy Horse Gear" calls the knot the "Side-Button".  I used a different way to make the base but followed his method of doing the interweave.

Bring cord around mandrel over, under.

Ready to double if desired.  The side-button knot is quite handsome without being doubled.
