The most central in macrame is of course the knots. I will list some of the most common knots I know.
The square knot
The square knot is the most basic knot used in macrame.
Chinese crown knot
A decorative knot. Gives impression of strength.
Double half hitch
A well used knot in macrame, especially in the art of friendship braceltets.
Reverse double half hitch
A reversed double half-hitch knot. The only difference between this and a normal double half hitch is the string swapping. Making an ordinary double half-hitch make strings switch place, but not this one.
This knot is very useful when starting a new work. Use it to fasten threads on a stick and you are ready to start tying!
This knot is often used to finish macrame work so the rest of the knots dont get untied by mistake.
A decorative knot giving structure to any macrame work.
The first half of a square knot. This knot is being used for making decorative spirals. Make a bunch of them in a row and see the result!
