The weaver's knot is used to join two pieces of material together when bottoming a chair. This form of the weaver's knot is perfect for joining the ends of flat materials. The knot is quick and easy to tie and very strong.
Recommended for 4mm - 6mm binding cane, 1/4" flat reed or 1/4" flat oval reed and hickory bark. If your material is too wide, trim the ends with your knife or scissors, then tie the knot.
You only need to tie this knot when warping your chair bottom. As you are weaving the weft, a simple over and under splice - matching your weaving pattern - will do fine.
Step1. Fold the end of the old piece. Lay the new piece across the the old piece.
Step 2. Fold the end of the new piece around the folded end of the old piece.
Step 3. Cross the new piece over itself and tuck into the loop made by the old piece.
Step 4. Pull knot tight and trim ends.
