Create evenly spaced knots quickly and easily with the easyknotter. This compact tool is easy to use, yet offers professional results. The easyknotter is designed for use with a variety of threads and cords, though size 6 silk is strongly recommended as the ideal by the manufacturer. Caution is recommended when using with sharp-edged beads such as glass, crystal and metal.
