I bought some elastic cord to make some easy bracelets but have found difficulty joining it. Tying a surgeon's knot seems to slip. Is there a special way?
No special way to knot--just add a drop of glue! After you have tied your surgeon's or square knot, you can secure the knot into place with a flexible adhesive such as the E6000® Jewelry and Craft Adhesive.
That will secure your knot and you'll be ready to bead-and-go!
