How To: Posament

Early Sweden

I get a lot of questions about how to create the knots used for posament. I created a handout showing step by step instructions on each of the common knots used. I’ve included a printable version of my instructions as well as a my documentation (because I forgot to add it to my previous post!)

I’ve also included some resources for purchasing tenntråd. If you have any other resources let me know and I’ll include them here. As always I’m happy to answer any questions that you have and would love feedback!

Happy knotting 🙂

Here is the documentation and instructions:
