Step by Step Instructions

1. Tape down your wooden dowel to the surface you’ll be crafting on. You can either pre-cut your length to the size you prefer (we ended up with a 3” long dowel), or you can trim it down after your macrame hanging is made.

2. Take one of your lengths of 25” and fold it in half.

3. Lay your loop over the wood dowel, and pass the ends through the loop. Tighten up on the wood dowel.

4. Do this again so that you have two knots beside each other.

5. Slide your knots apart, keeping the right knot centered.

6. Flip the ends of the right knot UP and over the dowel. Fold in half another length of 25” and lay it underneath your right knot, behind the dowel.

7. Take your loose ends on the right knot and pass them through the other loop laying behind the dowel. Tighten the knot up.

8. Twist the entire knot so that the back side faces forwards. This will make your loops and knots look more uniform.

9. Take your far left working end and fold it over the second strand in a 4 shape. Pass the second strand over the first and through the hole created. Holding the first strand taught, synch up the right strand so that it creates a looped looking knot. Repeat this once more with the same strands. This knot is called a Larks Head.

10. Take your second and third strands and complete another 2 Larks Head knot. Continue working until you are out of strings.

14. Taking your lead strand, loop your short 12” length onto it. Do this by folding your piece in half, laying it under the lead strand, and feeding the ends through the loop. Tighten this up and push it up. Leave these strings hanging.
