Cut the Twine and Secure
How to Make a Hemp Necklace

Measure the twine and secure with a lark's head knot.

First you will need to measure and cut the amount of hemp or jute you need for your necklace or bracelet. You also need something to hold the twine while you work with it.

Measure around your neck, then multiply the measurement by 12. How did we get to this number? After DIY readers tested this tutorial, they reported back to the forum with their solutions for measurements that worked best with this tutorial. (Thanks, ladies!)

Use these instructions for the lark’s head knot to measure, cut and attach your project to a key ring. This is important because you will want to be able to pull the twine tightly to make your knots strong.

Once your twine is cut and secured, you are ready to start knotting.
