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 .
