Learn Macrame is a knot gallery of detailed instructions for tying a variety of basic as well as unique knots. You should use scrap pieces of material and practice each of these decorative knots individually. The decorative knots found in most Macrame patterns are listed below. Just click on the images of the knots you want to learn. The step-by-step process, with photos, will come up in a new window. To learn Macrame properly, I recommend that beginners practice all the basic knots, which are labeled Basic or Vintage above the image. Vintage knots are those decorative knots used in the late 1800's to mid 1900's. After you have practiced, choose an easy project from the many free patterns in the other areas of this site.
