4mm Single Strand Macrame String
• 40 x 2ft (8 for each section)
• 1 x 6ft (main cord)
• 2 x 2ft (to make barrel knots)
Scissors (not included)
Fold the 6ft string in half to find the center.
Attach 8 of the 2ft cords to the middle of the 6ft string using a Lark’s Head Knot (see knot guide).
Begin making a square knot (see knot guide) using the leftmost four cords. Repeat with the four cords next to it, and so on until there are four knots in the row.
Moving below, set aside the two leftmost cords. Using four cords (two from each square knot above), make another square knot. Finish this row with 3 knots.
Repeat the process so you have four rows - top row = 4 knots, 2nd row = 3 knots, 3rd row = 2 knots & final row one square knot in the very center.
Using the leftmost cord as your leading cord, make a double half hitch knot (see knot guide) with the cord to it’s right (the second leftmost cord).
Continue making double half hitch knots (making sure to keep the
same lading cord the entire time) until you have reached the middle.
Now, use the cord furthest to the right as your leading cord and make double half hitch knots to the center again.
Finish of by making a final double half hitch in the center using the
two leading cords.
Repeat steps 2-9 for each of the 5 sections (making the sections
about 3-4 inches apart).
Find the end of the main cord & create a loop big enough to hang your wall hanging. Using one of the last 2ft strings, create a barrel knot (see knot guide) to secure the loop. Repeat this process on the other side, creating two loops to hang your macrame garland.
Trim the ends to make them even & voila! You’ve made a macrame garland!
