tying your Hanging Chair
A Step-by-Step Guide
These gorgeous rattan hanging chairs will instantly elevate the appearance of your living spaces with their effortless and timeless allure. Setting them up couldn’t be any easier either, and in this simple step-by-step guide we’ve outlined some of the easiest and fastest knotting techniques around.
It’ll only takes a few moments and perhaps a couple of practices before you’ll be securing and typing up hanging chairs as if you’ve been doing it your whole life, and knowing how to tie impenetrable knots is a worthwhile skill to have anyway.
This is perhaps one of the simplest and most versatile knots around, and it is so much easier to do that it may initially look!
- Ensuring there is enough length on either side, create a loop in the centre of the rope.
- As depicted in the first illustration, pass one end of the rope through the loop.
- As shown in the second illustration, pass this end down through the loop once again.
- Continue to pull the end through until it has tightened into a secure knot.
clove hitch knot
This is another incredibly reliable and safe way to attach your hanging chair, and it can be used quite easily with hoops or rods for additional security.
- First and foremost, pass the rope over itself to create a loop.
- Pass the end of the rope over itself again in order to create another loop.
- Pull the second loop through the first loop as demonstrated above.
- Pull in order to tighten the know.
A half-hitch knot is a variation of the clove hitch knot describes above. Depending on the length of the rope you have on hand, you can create as few or as many hitches as you look. With a longer rope, it’s always a good idea to create two or three hitches for some more peace of mind.
- Circle the rope around the desired support a couple of times and pull tightly.
- Create a loop underneath the support and pass one end of the rope around.
- Insert this end through the eye of the loop you created before.
- These are two half-hitch knots. You can always create another one for some extra security.
