Hi Knotters,

Welcome to another knot series tutorial! We will be going over an exciting mounting knot called the Triple Loop Mount knot.

The mounting knot most frequently used is the Lark’s Head knot – a simple knot that does the job. If you are looking to try something unique to incorporate into your patterns, the Triple Loop Mount knot may be right for you. Not only will it make the macrame stand out, but it will also add a unique textured trimming to the piece. I will be showing you how to make the knot in 5 simple steps.

As the name indicates, this is a mounting knot, so you will need to mount this on to another cord or object such as dowel. 

Once you have tried making the Triple Loop Mount knot a few times, be sure to follow along with Bochiknot Macrame to see how you can apply this mounting knot into a macrame piece. To learn how to take this knot one step further into a macrame project, visit Bochiknot.com/blog.
