I have attempted my first macramé...ever! I have been thinking that I would like to have a go, with regard to jewellery making, as it adds a whole new dimension to the gemstones. I have seen a few examples using the beading thread too, which will be my next challenge, once I have got used to using cord, rather than this cotton string which you see in the photos. The spiral pattern above is my favourite so far.
I think this one is the square knot technique which is used for making sliding knots too.
I am starting to get the hang of it, I think!
My first attempt at a fancy sliding knot. I have discovered that cotton string is not the best material to use because it doesn't actually slide very easily, but with a bit of gentle persuasion, it does work. The next thing is to get myself some proper cord and make a bracelet, I think. I do enjoy a challenge!
