Fender Buttons After I wrote about using Spar Hitch to tie up the evacuators, Lee told me about a similar knot he used for fenders and storing lines on a boat.
This is similar to what Ashley calls Backhand Hitch (node # 1852 in Ashley’s Node Book), except that Half Hitch is tied in the opposite direction, making this return node more secure. Ashley also shows Backhand Hitch tied with two Half Hitches to finish.
Lee taught this button / hitch a few years back on Rob & Teressa’s Father 40 in Baha Haha. Rob took him aside and showed him this node and explained that it was the only node allowed to store rows. He wanted a standard knot, so in the middle of the night, when things didn’t go well, the person in front of him didn’t need to figure out what he was doing. Fast connection and good handling even with small diameter objects.
Starting Lee’s Fender Node
Start by rotating one turn around the object to which you are connected.
Lee’s Fender Knot – Step 2 – Looks like Ring Hitch
Continue around the object and avoid the standing part of the line, and then turn another round around the object and walk around as you link a Ring Link or Cow Link. Don’t bring the bitter end down like a Ring Hitch.
Lee’s Fender Node – Step 3
Run over the standing part of the line and connect a Half Hitch around the standing part of the line. Crossing the standing part makes Lee’s Fender Knot safer than the Backhand Hitch.

Lee’s Fender Knot is over and it’s over.

It is connected vertically around an accent. Lee’s Fender Knot will also look good when tied around a small diameter object, such as a lifeline or polished chrome handrails.
Thanks to Lee Youngblood for the tip on this node. Lee is a longtime friend, experienced sailor and Yacht Broker.
Spar Hitch Fender Knot
The Spar Hitch is another useful knot you can find useful to help prevent the loss of fenders. The Spar Hitch is good for small objects that are slippery, but also fast to attach and bağlan slippery bağlan.
Fender Whip for centered fenders
An Enhanced Mudguard Whip – For mudguards with a hole in the center to operate the first mud beater, to connect knots to your boat that holds the knots much better than a standard Mud Beater.
Improved Fender Whips for Visible Fenders
An Enhanced Mudguard Whip – Part 2 for mudguards with eyes or nails on the mud flap whip to attach a mudguard to your boat that holds nodes much better than a standard mud beater.
He’s solid – all I can think of is getting a rod or wire that you can bend a solid hook with, or take it from the bottom, or maybe a 1/4 inch diameter rod. (it will go down through the center hole and press the knot in the center hole) and push it from top to bottom and maybe push it down from the bottom. Maybe try to put some soapy water in the hole and even to loosen things up a bit.
I wanted to do a tutorial and finally decided on this little macrame bracelet. It is based on the knotted bracelets you see in tourist shops. It is very easy to do and you can design it to suit your style, depending on the beads and beads you choose. They also offer great gifts due to the adjustable length of the sliding buckle.
As long as the bead holes are large enough to accommodate two cords, almost any type of cords and cords work. Only one node is used along a simple square node. The sliding buckle is as simple as finishing, and the whole project can do what you want in part of American Idol or the TV.
You’ll need a few simple things:
- 4 meter cable (I used C-Lon Tex 400 for this demo)
- 8 or more beads depending on the length of the bracelet
- 2 small beads for rockers
- 3 straight pins
- Needle tip for finishing needle (has round ballpoint tip)
- Needle Tip Jewelry Pliers (Optional)
1)Cut the 2-piece strap up to 24,, hold it together and clip about 8 clipboard boards from one end. These will be fill cables. I use a shade of lavender for my stuffing cords.
Cut a piece of cord about 2 meters long. This knot will become ropes. Normally I use the same color cable for both fill and knot cords, but for this demo only, I use a dark purple shade for knot cords. Locate the center of the knot cord, slide it under the filler cables and secure it to the foamcore panel. We will now start to work with square knots with knot cords on the filler cables.
2) I use the right hand, so I usually start with the cable on the right side of the filler cables. Place the fill cords horizontally on the right to form a ring on the right. Take the cable on the left and place it on the horizontal cable, then lift it up under the cables and with the ring on the right. Pull out both knot cables and tighten. This is 1/2 of the square node.
3) Repeat step 2, but take the left cord and place it horizontally on the filler cables that form a loop on the left. Take the right cord and place it on the horizontal cord, then turn it under all the cables and top to left. Pull out both knot cables and tighten. You just made a full-frame knot.
4) After each 3 to 5 square knots, continue to make square knots and place a bead on the filler cables. The number of nodes depends on the size of the cord, the size of the beads, and the fact that many nodes look nice to you. Continue this pattern to the desired length. Note that the sliding clamp will add approximately ″ add.
When you’re done, thread a knot of thread into your needle and sew it to the center as far as possible. If you have problems, use a pair of jewelery pliers to pull your needle. If you find that your knots are too tight and you cannot thread the entire cord, remove the 3-ply cord and sew each thread separately. After properly sewing both knot cables, cut off any excess.
5) Then we make the buckle. Circle your work and hold it together by loosely tying it with a small amount of cord close to both sides of the nodes (I used orange). Foamcore pin bracelet.
Cut a strap about 12 ″ in length. Just like you did in step 1, slide this cord under the four cords and make square knots on all four cords for the 1/2 cord. Finish ends just like you would with a bracelet. When sewing these tips, avoid putting needles into the cords inserted into the needle.
6) Remove these temporary lanyard bits. There are 2 loose cables protruding from both ends of the buckle section. Hold 2 cords together and form a slip knot, place a bead on both cords, then create another slip knot to hold it in place. Cut the excess. Run and show everyone you know.
