The Double Coin Knot looks like two overlapping traditional styled Chinese coins which are round with a square hole in the center. In Chinese, the name of knot has an auspicious sound: “Double Perfection.” This decorative knot has many applications. It is not a tight knot. It can be tied with different colored threads to make attractive patterns. It can also be tied with double strands to add to its beauty.

Materials:
Use 10 inches of No. 5 thread.
