This page contains an introduction to the craft of macramé and links to my pages showing instructions for macramé knots.
This site features macramé jewelry and wall hangings and sterling silver jewelry. Click on HOME to get to the introductory page for the site.
The links on the side of the page will take you to other parts of my macramé site including pictures of some of my work.
Macramé is the art of decorative knotting.
I am attempting, in the pages shown here, to teach you the basic knots which you can then use to create your own original designs. This is not meant to be a comprehensive course in macramé but I hope to provide information to get you started. I will periodically add new design ideas and tips to this site.
Cords can be mounted on a dowel or on a horizontal cord using the simple lark's head or the double half hitch for mounting cords. Or you can tie overhand knots and pin your strings to a knotting board.
