KNOT SCHOOL......Knot #2


Hello and welcome to KNOT SCHOOL


Today is the second 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!

KNOT #2
Square Knot
Make a pair of Larks Head Knots.
Drape outer blue, over inner blue & inner pink twine! They are called anchors!
a- pink twine over, b-pink twine under, c-pink twine through!
and tightened!
a-look here, this is where you begin again! b- blue twine over anchor twines!
a- pink twine over, b-pink twine under, c-pink twine through!
a- Yeah...square knot!
Repeat, this time blue twine over, then pink, over | under | through :)
Yeah two square knots!
....know for a third, a - note where to start.
and to infinity and beyond!



Thanks for joining in!

I hope your enjoying, getting your knot on?

Let me know of any difficulties, I'm used to teaching but online is different? ...anyway teenagers are easy...I ply them with candy! lol

Feel free to share....but link with love!

  3. I think I could do the one from yesterday...but I'm not so sure about this one. It has always been the family joke that I am too spatially challenged to learn to knit. Now I remember why. The same is probably true about tying knots. :)
