The square macramé knot is made of four material strands. Depending on whether you knot on the right or left, the four strands are parallel to each other and the knot works with the two outer knots. The leftmost strand is placed above and above the middle strands and below the rightmost strand. The right-most strand is placed above and below the two middle strands and above the left strand.
The end of the rightmost cord should now also be on the left side, the end of the leftmost cord should now be on the right. The tip of your rightmost strand, now from the left, runs under the two middle strands and at the top at the end of the strand on the far left. The tip of your string on the far left from the right is above the middle strands and below the end of the string on the far right. The two strings are then tightened and closed.
This macrame knot is used in many hemp ornaments. This knot and these variations are combined to create numerous patterns for bracelets and necklaces. The square knot can also be used to hold beads together with other stones through the necklace or bracelet. Together with hemp this knot can also be used for silver bracelets, cuffs, earrings and necklaces.
Double Half Pendant Coupling
The double half-coupling can be knotted vertically, horizontally, diagonally or curved. This macrame knot is normally started by attaching the materials to the dowel. Another technique is to tie an overhand knot in each string, which is then attached to a knotting board.
When making the horizontal double half, a horizontal string is placed over the dangling strands. If you go from left to right, the end of the vertical string is pulled up and also over the horizontal string and its end is pulled out of your resulting loop.
The exact same end of the cord will be lifted again in the same way. Each string is knotted twice before moving on to the next string. Similar to the square knot, this knot can be used for hemp, silver or other flexible decorative strings. The double half pendant knot can be strung together to make wide necklaces, bracelets and necklaces.
The overhand macramé knot is the knot that is normally used to tie laces. It can be made by making a loop with the string and putting one end under the string and through the loop. Each end is then tightened. The shape of the knot can be used as a pendant for a necklace if it is made of metal. It can also be used to stop and start designs on natural fiber necklaces and bracelets.
