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

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
