Step 1: How to make a macrame knot
Step #1 : Now that you have your supplies that you need , in my instructable I will be using pink and blue braiding cord . Take the two cords/ strings that you chose , fold them in half , and tie a overhand knot , which you'll now have a loop . Now take the loop and tape or clip it to a flat surface , such as a clip board , counter , desk , or whatever kind of workstation you have , and separate the strings , into four sections , with the longest ones on the outside and the shortest ones in the middle . In my instructable it will be the pink on the left and blue on the right .
Step 2: How to make a macrame knot
Step #2 : now that you have the strings or cord separated , take the left cord, and cross it over the two middle cords and under the right cord . If you want to start on the right , take the right cord and cross it over the middle cords and under the left cord .
Step 3: How to make a macrame knot
Step # 3 : Now take the right cord , which if you started on the right , it will be the left cord and cross it behind the two middle cords , and up through the loop , and you now have the first half of the knot .
Step 4: How to make a macrame knot
Step #4 : Now that you have the first half of the macrame knot , you will start on the second half . Take the right cord and pass it over the center cords and under the left cord , if you started on the right side , you would take the left cord and pass it over the middle cords and under the right cord .
