KNOT SCHOOL.....Knot #1





Welcome to KNOT SCHOOL


Today is the first in a series of posts, where I show you 7 basic Macramé knots.
You have been watching me for the past 18 months now it's your turn!

Majority of Macramé begins with this knot, it's not very exciting but hey you need to know it!


KNOT #1
Larks Head




.......now get knotting!

  1. I was brought up in the 70s surrounded by Macrame, but it was always brown...I love how you've updated it with such brilliant bright colour combinations! I look forward to learning the next knot...Rachel x

  2. I'm so thrilled, Pippa!! I'm so looking forward to learning from you! You're so generous to want to share your macramé skills with us, can't wait for that next knot! When my house gets back to normal I'll have to get myself some twine:-) Don't worry, it'll be long before we'll reach your level of expertise, so no competition!

    1. Never say never Tove, I'm sure that Norway needs a macrame revolution!
      We will learn knots first then some patterns! :)

  4. I think even I could manage a Larks Head!
    Now tell me Pipstar, where's the best place to get twine? (not that itchy scratchy stuff) Does Spotlight sell it? And the metal thing?
    Knot School's a great idea. Wonderful. Thanks for sharing. I'm in!

  6. Loving Knot School!
    I plan not to tie a knot, but simply watch and dig it alot.
    (abit of rhyming to make up for my lack of craft skills)
    Kicking goals Pippa!! xx

  7. Hi Pippa. I wake up ever morning and smile at your beautiful work. I have a large macrame hanger that my Mum gave me from our family home and longing for the day I can hang it up. So looking forward to learning the craft. Another obsession! xxxv
