It is a knot that is tied and woven from a single cord or rope to become a variety of shapes and varying complexity. 

In China, the Good Luck knot is called Jie Sheng (结绳). The Chinese pronunciation of Sheng (绳) is similar to the word God, Shen (神), hence people wishes upon the Good Luck knot with the hopes of receiving good luck and fortune from God.

Each shape has its own symbolic meaning, and nowadays you can find them as decoration, gifts for special occasions, and adornments on clothes. Knots are weaved in a variety of colours, the most common colour used is deep red ones as red signifies good fortune.

Most knots are double layered and symmetrical and have two cords entering the knot from the top and two leaves from the bottom. Each kind of knot is named after its shape or the symbolic meaning that it carries.
