If you want to make a left-facing Half Knot, start with the opposite cord.

You can do this by folding the right cord over to the left and then taking that left cord back and through on the right.

All you have to remember is that you’ll need four vertical strands to make a Half Knot.

You can also make a thicker Half Knot Spiral. To do that, all you need is more filler cords than the two that we have used.

The two working cords used to make these Half Knots have to be much longer than the filler cords in the middle, as those are the cords used to make the knots.

Once you have made several have knots, you can see the spiral-like shape form.
