Bundling Cords

Bundling is folding each strand of cord so that it is easy to unwind and use. A bundle can be made by making a figure eight around your thumb and little finger, then secure it by placing a rubber band around the bundle (for large bundles use a wire twist). The idea is to have a bundle of cord that is small enough to fit through knot loops easily, and will be comfortable to use.

Macramé Braids & Chains.

Chains are decorative fillers made by tying the same knot down two or more working cords in

various patterns.

Adding onto a project is a type of splicing, no tape or glue is used. In this way adding is always done in the center of the working knots.

Adding a new cord to a square knot chain.

Cords are added between the knotting cords, as a extra filler cord. Place the new cord in-between the two filler cords and continue knotting until the old filler cord is covered.

This is a simple fix when you run short on a knotting cord. Just switch one knotting cord for a filler cord. And then you can add a new filler cord. This works great with a square knot bread.

Let's Make a Basic Macramé Hanger

Materials needed:

41.148meter 6mm. Braided Polypropylene Cord. 1, 57.15mm metal ring. 1) Cut:

  • 4 cords - 6.4008meter long.

  • 4 cords - 2.7432meter long.

  • 2 cord - 0.9144meter long.

2) Use a scrape piece of cord to tie the center of all eight cords together.

3) Center the eight cords over the ring, and tie a wrapping knot for 76.2mm.

4) Separate into groups 2long and 2short cords each. You now have four groups of four cords each group.

5) Take group one and tie a square knot close to the wrap, using 2 long knotting cords and two short filler cords. Continue to tie a square knot sinnet for 406.4mm.

6) Repeat for the other groups of cords.

7) Drop down 127mm and tie a row of alternating square knots, to connect the sinnets and begin the basket.

8) Drop down 50.8mm and tie another row of alternating square knots.

9) Tie a third row of alternating square knots up close to the last row to close the basket.

10) Cut a wrapping cord 0.9144meter long. Gather all tail cords together directly under the last row of alternating square knots. Tie a 25.4mm gathering wrap. Trim and wrap up close and fuse. Trim tail cords to length. Fuse ends to prevent unraveling.

10) Cut a wrapping cord 0.9144meter long. Gather all tail cords together directly under the last
