Cookie’s Wave | Tutorial

Take on the challenge of "Cookie's Wave", Silke Engels' new knot. In this tutorial, you will see step by step how to make this knot with 8 ropes.

The new knot "Cookie's Wave" by Silke Engels is made with 8 paracord ropes. This knot is about 4.4 cm wide and 1.1 cm thick when tied with paracord 550.

Because you're working with 8 ropes, keeping track can be quite complicated. Don't have much knotting experience yet? Then you can also opt for an easier knot, such as the Double KBK Bar.

Beginning of the knot

You start this knot with the Kosmetik 2.1. In the MatchMaker, you can calculate how much you need of each colour and how long the set-up should be for your project.

After you have made this double set-up, add four other ropes.

  1. Colour 2 goes through the three set-up knots.
  2. Colour 2, 4 and 5 each go through one of the set-up knots.

With each colour, make sure the left and right strands are the same length.

Colour 1: Holy Guacamole & White Diamonds, colour 2: Marvelous Mauve, colour 3: Rose Pink, colour 4: Mocca and colour 5: Fuchsia.

  1. Tighten the knot. With this knot, it is important to always pull on both the 3 colours at the front and the 3 colours at the back firmly to tighten the knot.
  2. From both sides, the strands of colour 1 first pass under two vertical strands and then over the other two vertical strands. Insert the strands on both sides into the loop.

  1. Each time, bring the colours 3-8 to the front in pairs and lay the strands alternately. Make sure the colour coming from behind always starts on the left. Next, you let the other colour go to the back.

Repeat these steps until your work is long enough.

What the front and the back of the paracord knot looks like with Cookies Wave

On the left in the image you can see what the front of the knot looks like and on the right you can see the back. Are the six loops in a row (i.e. from the same knot) bumpy? Then the strands are probably not pulled tight enough.
