DIY Macrame Wall Hanging — 3 Ways to Start Your Work
How To Start Your Work
*Please note: This video teaches you 3 different patterns that can be used to start your wall hanging. It focuses on the patterns not the knots. If you’d like a slower, more in-depth explanation of each of the knots used please refer to these tutorials:
Lark’s Head Knot:
Double Half Hitch Knot:
During this video I will teach you 3 way to start your macrame wall hanging.
During sections where I repeat a process, I will show you once in real time. The rest is 4x the regular speed. If you would like to view the sped up sections in real time please click on the settings option on the bottom right of the video, click speed, and click 0.25.
Method #1: Semi-Circles
The first method is to create semi-circles at the top of your wall hanging.
Using the strand of rope on the right, create a Lark’s head knot. The strand of rope between your two Lark’s head knots will create the semi-circle at the top of your work.
I will add one more Lark’s head knot so that I have two semi-circles at the top of my work. Add as many Lark’s head knots as your desire.
Again using Lark’s Head Knots, attach the rope that you will be using to create your wall hanging.
You are all set to create your wall hanging!
Next I’ve added an optional row of double half hitch knots.
Method #2: Square Knots
The second method is to create a section of alternating square knots.
I like to use this as the back layer of my work. I’ll then add layers that are brought together in front of the base layer.
Method #3: Square Knots & Lark’s Head Knots
The third method is a combination of the first two. Start by tying 2 square knots at the top of your work. Tie another square knot to join to the sides.
Use Lark’s Head Knots to attach the outside 4 strands to the dowel (2 strands on each side).
Tie 2 more square knots.
Tie a final square knot.
Using Lark’s Head Knots attach your rope to your work on both sides. I’ve used 7, 2, 2, 7 strands here.
Tie one row of double half hitch knots on both sides of your work and connect it with another double half hitch knot in the middle.
I like to use this as the first layer of my work and then add top layers that are brought together in front of my work.
