macrame instructions - introduction 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. The two most commonly used knots are the square knot and the double half hitch. My macramé designs are based on creative variations using almost exclusively these two knots. rostitchery: loom knit market bag (this post was originally published on 4 july, 2007, with the title "to market, to market, with a bag big enough to hold a fat pig".) in which i come up with half a solution for half a problem. during the summer, ella's preschool has water play day on fridays. the first friday, i packed ella's swimsuit and towel in a bag i had made on the blue knifty knitter long loom. her teacher loved it, and of course i tried to convince her that she could make one too but like most people miss jenny insists she is inept. so even though i KNOW she could make one herself, i went ahead and made one for both her teachers because ella is very concerned that miss jenny and miss sue won't have any way to carry their towels to the beach. to solve this problem, i lift up the bars on BOTH sides of a stitch and put them on the peg together--thus keeping the stitches aligned as i continue in the round: on the end pegs, make sure you twist the stitches, to keep them consistent with the rest.
Graft Bind-Off Method The basic graft bind-off creates loose, somewhat lacy bind-off. Depending on the project you use it in, you may need to reinforce it. When you having finished knitting your project to the desired length, cut the working yarn leaving a 1-2 foot tail. Thread the tail through the tapestry needle. Starting with peg where the working yarn is, draw the yarn through the wrap as if to purl (under the loop and up the peg) with the tapestry needle. After the yarn has been drawn all the way through, take the wrap off the peg.
