Learn how to do macrame:
Learning macrame is easy once you master the basics. The first step is to tie a knot, in any style you like. The knot you tie should be very strong and secure, so that there are no accidents when you remove the finished piece. Some people prefer the knot called a macrame knot. This is a double knot that is usually made by interconnecting two pieces of wire or string and then braiding them together, creating a beautiful decorative look.
After tying a knot, the next thing you need to know about how to start macramé is how to make handwoven macrame. The best way to do this is to use a pattern book. These books have patterns for everything from beads to handmade clothing. Once you find a good macrame pattern book, all you have to do is follow the instructions to create your own art. To make a beautiful handwoven macrame, you’ll need about 400 grams of high quality white cotton and a few strands of macrame, about a dozen of these strands for each square inch of handwoven macrame.

Start macrame is easy:
Starting macrame may seem difficult, but once you get started, it will be a lot of fun and you will quickly become a master of your macramé design. To begin, lay a smooth, flat piece of cardboard on the floor and line it up with the corners. Spread a few strands of handwoven macrame evenly along the length of the bottom and the width of the top. If the pattern book says to use a specific knot, simply choose a knot and tie it in the center of the macrame strands, continuing along the cardboard. Always work in the same direction as the macrame.
Next, lay another square of smooth, flat cardboard on the floor and line it up with the second square. Spread a little more of the hand-woven macramé pattern on top, then continue in the same direction as the first strand of macrame. Lay another row of macramé and continue this pattern all the way down, then across the top. The pattern should be similar to the first macramé pattern. When you are finished, you can now cut the macramé if necessary.
Once you finish this simple project, you will have the perfect project for any craft lover. You can even make and sell your own handwoven macrame jewelry. To start this project, all you need to do is gather some old fabric or other materials such as yarn and scissors. Next, gather a few books on how to weave and follow the instructions provided. Be sure to pay close attention to the patterns and diagrams. Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can start creating intricate projects like tapestry rugs and pillows.
