I'm trying to remember a knot that I learnt in a crafts workshop to build a himmeli : a himmeli is a construction in straw (example image), a thread goes through the straw to keep it together. The knot I learnt was to join a new piece of thread, when you ran out of thread.

The knot I was taught was called "Kankurin Solmu" in Finnish (it translates to "Weaver's Knot"). I found the following diagram of the "Weaver's Knot" on this Finnish web page, but I just can't make out how it is built from the diagram.

Do you think that the knot in the photo I posted below corresponds to the so-called Weaver's Knot of the diagram at that page? (Something doesn't seem quite right to me but I can't exactly remember the knot I was taught and I can't really make out the diagram).

Does the knot in the photo of my post seem viable as a knot to join thread?

    Can you tell us more about this knot? Have you found it in use somewhere or did you tie it yourself? It is very well possible that this knot has been discovered and discarded many times as unreliable or too hard to untie. – Willeke Jan 22 at 23:04
  • This knot would not be secure. It isn't clear what purpose it serves. It definitely isn't the "Weaver's knot" in your link. – fixer1234 Feb 6 at 4:23
  • I think its opinion based because it says: "Do you think that the knot in the photo I posted below corresponds to the so-called Weaver's Knot of the diagram at that page?" – Isaac750 50 mins ago

"A weaver's knot joins two threads together in a knot that will secure your threads and allow you to continue weaving." Source

This is not gonna work for you because your using laces, this is meant to be used as something like knitting, because you continue to make the knot over and over again.

However, your knot doesn't seem to match, I grabbed 2 laces and did what your image is showing, whenever i put pressure on it, it dissconnects.

Now, the link you're providing, shows 2 laces, each one with an "omega-like" logo tied together. So the answer is no. You're not doing it right. Try tying them like I said.
