Picture of Macrame rings
So, I like making rings. I like it a lot to be honest. But, there is one problem with rings: when they don't have the exact right size, they are not very comfortable. That's why I wanted to try out this idea: macrame rings. It uses just the regular macrame knots and that's what makes it so easy, especially if you already know how to macrame! You can also decide to give it your own twist by adding a bead to it, or by using more than one colour.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
To make these rings, you will need the following:

- yarn, about 1.20 meter will be sufficient
- scissors
- glue
- round object matching the size of your finger, when you are using thicker yarn/multiple colours it could be useful to take something slightly bigger, otherwise your ring may not fit

i kinda don't get step 2... please help :)

You take the round object and your yarn, you knot the yarn around the object as shown and 'seal' this knot by making a second knot. Hope that helped :)

And number three is there a specific name for that knotting?

I'm going to try this in hopes it will cover an old tattoo on my finger. Thanks for the idea!

OMG! As soon as I saw these, they looked so familiar...then I remembered that I actually made one a couple of years ago!! I searched and searched...and I found it! I used 2 different colors but the knot is the same one. Look how dirty it is lol :D sorry for the bad picture.
Great job by the way! :)

Awesome! I made one like that too, but I don't know where I put it :)
Nice! Really interesting look!
How long does it take to make one?

Thank you! It depends a bit on how fast you can macrame, but I'd say about 10 minutes, maybe less.

Very pretty and versatile. I could see these in all kinds of different materials, too.

Thank you! Why don't you just try it in a different material!

Looking at it, I think that macramé knot is the same as the "cobra weave" that paracorders use to make bracelets.
