How to Tie a Heart Knot for Mother’s Day

The heart knot is easy to tie, and you can use it to make a necklace, bracelet or keychain. It makes a great gift for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or birthdays.


  • 3 feet of rope, paracord or leather lacing
  • Tape measure
  • Tape
  • Scissors


1. Tape the left end down. Work only with the right end.

2. Measure in 1 foot from the left end and make this loop.

3. Go under and then up and out of the loop, leaving extra on the bottom to form loop No. 1.

4. Go up over loop No. 2, and then back down, leaving small loop No. 3 on top. Keep going down under big loop No. 2, then down on top of loop No. 1.

5. Go up and under loop No. 1. Thread over, and then under center loop No. 2, and then over top loop No. 3.

6. Untape the left end. Pull on both ends, and then work inside the heart with your fingers to tighten it. Form the heart little by little. Pinch the bottom into a V.

7. Hold the two ends, make a loop and pull them through the loop to knot. Trim off excess.

    Took about three thousand tries. On the on thousandth try I got it right but the tape was too weak. On the two thousandth try I got it but it looked sloppy and wrong. Now on the three thousandth try I got it.

    Is this a variation of the Carrick bend? It forms a heart when tightened. It looks very similar.

  38. Pretty neat.
    Worked better on paracord than natural fiber rope for me.

  39. Great idea!

  40. Very well done.

  41. A double fisherman’s knot would make a nicer knot. The chain broke a few years ago on my BSA Eagle necklace so I replaced the chain with gray arborist throwline and finished it with the double fisherman’s knot.

    I had trouble getting this to work well with Paracord despite several attempts, but found it worked well on inexpensive “clothesline” style rope.

    I found it worked better if I removed the inner strands from the 550 cord (paracord) before tying the knot.

  44. I made a bracelet with this using hemp cord and paper beads. It turned out great!

  45. Mine looked a lot more like a Valentines pretzel.

  46. Perfect, but I thought it would be like the picture.
