Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I was disappointed to see that Knot Easy isn't really a yarn and this isn't a knitting pattern at all. You just cut the stuff and tie knots. Simple to make, yes, but not sure why it's on a knitting pattern site, it would be better suited to a crafts site.
