SPECIAL TERMS:
Mounting (anchor) cord = Length of cord(s) pinned horizontally to which knot-bearing cords are attached to begin a piece
Knot-bearing cord = Cord around which knots are tied
Knotting cord = Cord used to make knots
Working end = End of knotting cord being used to tie knots
Space = Distance left open between last row of knots & next row to be tied

DIRECTIONS:

Gridded board makes it easier to set spacing between knots.

Cut one 16" [40.5 cm] cord; fold in half. Hold both cords, tie overhand knot 1" [2.5 cm] from each end. Stretch cords taut horizontally across top of pin board; pin through knots.
Cut eight 72" [183 cm] lengths of cord. Fold each in half. Tie to mounting cord with Lark’s Head knot. Number cords from left to right: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16.
Leave 1" [2.5 cm] space below Lark’s Head knots.
Row 1: With 1-4, 5-8, 9-12, 13-16, tie LSK – 4 knots.
Row 2: Skip 2 outer cords each side. With 3-6, 7-10, 11-14, tie LSK – 3 knots.
Leave 1" [2.5 cm] space.
Rows 3 & 5: Repeat Row 2.
Row 4: Repeat Row 1.
Leave 1/2" [1.5 cm] space.
Row 6: Skip 4 outer cords each side. With 5-8 & 9-12 tie LSK in center – 2 knots.

INVERTED PYRAMID:
Row 1: With 1-4, 5-8, 9-12, 13-16, tie LSK – 4 knots.
Row 2: Skip 2 outer cords each side. With 3-6, 7-10, 11-14, tie LSK – 3 knots.
Row 3: Skip 4 outer cords each side. With 5-8 & 9-12 tie LSK – 2 knots.
Row 4: With 7-10, tie LSK in center – 1 knot.

FINISHING:
Cut folded end of mounting cord. Leave 1/2" [1.5 cm]; trim cord ends. Rub with fingers to encourage fringing.
Cut two 8" [20.5 cm] lengths of hammered chain. Attach half of clasp to each chain with smaller jump rings. Join remaining end of chain to pendant with larger jump rings; take ring through last link & overhand knot.
Trim hanging cord ends to desired length. Tie overhand knots at bottom to prevent fraying. 

ABBREVIATIONS:
LSK = Left Square Knot
[ ] = work directions in brackets the number of times specified
