Learn Macrame

Learn Macrame
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.

Satin Rosary Description: The Satin Rosary features several types of decorative knots. Make sure you practice each one before trying to make this design. The various types of knots represent the beads in a standard Rosary. This Micro-Macrame pattern replaces the Soft Rosary, which needed some changes.

Zip Clasp Description: The Zip Clasp is a unique way to form a Micro-Macrame jewelry closure. The advantage to using it is that it's very easy to open and close. It's a great clasp for Paracord bracelets, and can be used for a necklace or belt as well. When making something with this technique, I recommend you use 2mm size materials like Hemp, Nylon, or Satin. Materials easily compressed and flexible, such as cotton, are not the best choices for this type of clasp. In the example I used Square Knots for the entire bracelet.

December 2010 Here are a couple of cards I made just before Christmas, but am only just getting around to showing. They both use images from Fairydoodler and papers from The Clipart Fairy. The first one is my entry to Fairydoodlers latest challenge, using her freebie image, her digi stamps are gorgeous, make sure you pop over and check them out. I coloured the image with water colour pencils, unfortunately I'm not brilliant at the whole colouring in thing and intend to spend some time this coming year learning how to be better, especially as Santa brought me all those Aquamarkers. The paper and letter J came from the Rose collection on Clipart Fairy's Modern Heritage Double CD Rom, which is full of elegant papers, alphabets, inserts, ideas and tutorials. DIY Easy Square Knot Flower Bracelets. To make this bracelet you only need to know how to make a square knot (also known as Reef knot or Flat knot). This is a great bracelet for beginners in macrame.
