Here’s a link to basic macramé knots.
DIY Macramé Wall Hanging
Pot (& Plant)
Macramé Cord (3mm)
Lark’s Head Knot: Fold a cord in half and place it over the other cords. Bring the ends through the hole created and pull them tight.
Gathering Knot: Gather your cords. Create a U shape with an extra cord. Wrap it around the cords and pass the end through the loop created. Pull the top cord to tighten the loop.
Spiral Stitch Knot: (It’s the first half of a square knot.) Hold the middle cords straight. Bring the left cord over the middle cords and under the right. Pull the right cord through the number 4 created. Use the same cords to continue making knots.
Square Knot: Hold the middle cords straight. Bring the left cord over the middle cords and under the right. Pull the right cord through the number 4 created. Then, do the opposite. Make a backwards 4 with the right cord over the middle cords and under the left. Pull the left cord through the backwards 4 created.
Alternating Square Knots: After creating groups of square knots, make a square knot using 2 right cords from 1 group and 2 left cords from the group to the right of it.
I cut 8 cords at 6 yards each. (I ended up having a lot of extra cord.)
I also cut an extra cord at about 2 yards.
Fold the cords in half to find the center. I made a lark’s head knot with the extra cord.
Then, tape it down.
Separate a cord on each side.
Then, make 8 square knots.
Untie the extra cord, turn it around, and make 8 square knots (starting with the right cord).
Fold the cords in half and align the ends of the square knots.
Make a gathering knot using the extra cord. (I wrapped the cord 16 times.)
Cut the ends of the gathering knot cord.
Separate the 16 cords into 4 groups.
For each group, make 22 spiral stitch knots.
I left a 2” space and made 2 square knots.
Then, I left a 2” space and made 22 spiral stitch knots.
Next, I left a 3 3/4” space. I made a square knot using 2 right cords from 1 group and 2 left cords from the group to the right of it. This is called alternating square knots.
I made 3 rows of alternating square knots (with 2” spaces between each row).
I left about a 1 1/4” space and made a gathering knot with the extra cord. (I wrapped the cord 14 times.)
I cut the top part of the gathering knot cord and kept the bottom part.
Cut the bottom cords to the length you want. (I left about 6 inches and cut the cords at slightly different lengths.)
Paint your pot, add a plant, & your macramé hanging planter is done.
