Nautical knots aren’t just for seaside cottages and navy seamen. They have a classic look with a little extra charm. It’s a DIY that everyone will ask about the next time you’re entertaining! Weaving the knot correctly requires a little extra attention to detail, but the end result looks effortless--the ends of the rope connect underneath one of the intersections so that the knot looks never-ending.

    Cut the rope into four 6-foot strands and tape all of the ends down to your worktable so they lie flat. Then, wrap the rope around into a pretzel shape, weaving the end underneath the beginning. I taped down the rope in a few places as I went so that the strands stayed together as I worked.

    Continue weaving the strands underneath and through your original pretzel shape, and you’ll notice four arches form to create the edge of your trivet.

    Wrap the rope to create the fifth arch, and weave the ends under to meet up with the start. Cut your rope at this point, so it will be hidden underneath the top layer.
