I believe the knot is called a hitch knot. I could be wrong, but that is what it looks like to me.

I believe the knot is called the half hitch.  It's half of the square knot, over and over again which makes a spiral around the wire.

thanks!!  Cheesy

Ok, I will work on a simple tute to share! It's such a great way to get rid of yarn too.  Wink

I remember doing these when I was younger only it wasn't with yarn, it was with these huge balls of nylon selvage you could get at Woolworths. And the wrap I used to use was a square knot (like the basic one you use with gimp), but these knots almost look like when you cast on off your thumb (in knitting).

*Edit*
Here's one I found at the back of the closet


I wonder if you can get that nylon stuff anymore.

Whoa! I love this variation! Very cool, looks more like candy.

I used to make these with my grandmother when I was young. It's really easy you basically cover two metal hangers with two different colors yarn. -Using simple knots. I can't remember the name of the knot (it's been a while since Girl Scouts!) but I plan on making many more so I might upload a simple pictorial if anyone's interested  Smiley

anyhow I made these dozen for a bridal shower gift!





*they are great for items that you want to hang but don't stay on a normal hanger

I made this for my high school BFF's baby. They live in FL now; so I thought this lizard batik would be perfect for beach bummin'!  Wink

hope you enjoy it too!

My dad wanted some new placemats for his new pad in Rosemount, and he lives right next to a mill so I thought this wheat field fabric would be nice. I could've made these faster by not doing patchwork but I wanted to make them like tiny quilts  Smiley
