Macrame is back! This retro way to make textiles from the 70’s has made a resurgence as a sleek way to add texture to your environment. We have a step-by-step tutorial from Shelby Johnson from Bonfire Heart for a macrame plant hanger. It’s great for beginners that are just starting out and also seasoned crafters that need a quick refresher course! If you’ve ever made a friendship bracelet or a hemp necklace, this uses very similar knots.
Cut a 12″ strand of cord to wrap around ring. Tie knot and trim off excess.
Cut 4, 60″ strands of string. Fold in half and loop around ring, creating a Reverse Larkshead Knot. This will leave you with a total of 8 stands; 4 strands in the front and 4 in the back.
Cut 4 more, 80″ strands.
Hang ring on wall or tape ring to flat surface for stability while creating knots.
Take one of the 80″ strands, fold it in half and use it to tie a half knot around 2 of the 60″strands hanging from the ring.
Continue to Half Knot for 4 inches, which will create the spiral effect.
Repeat step 6 with each of the 4, 80” strands for a total of 4 spirals coming off the ring.
Separate the cords into 4 groups of 4 and tie a square knot + half knot 4″ below the bottom of each spiral. Each time connecting the outer rope of each section together with the closest outer rope of the section to its left.
2 more inches down from the Step 8 knots, repeat square knot + half knot. Once again connecting the outer rope of each section together with the closest outer rope of the section to its left.
Step 10. 1″ below the Step 9 knots tie a square knot to tie all the strings together to create a base. Unravel remaining hanging cords.
Fold one cord in half. Place it loop side down beneath the ring with the cords facing up. Pull the loop up over the dowel. Pull the cords down through the loop, creating a pretzel shape.
The two outer cords are the knotting cords and the two middle cords are the knot-bearing cords.
The Square Knot is a continuation of the Half Knot. The half means half of the square. Work the first part of the knot just like a half knot then you finish the square by working another half knot using the opposite cords.
This is the measurement from the top of your door to where you'd like the lock handle. This measurement allows you the flexibility to place the locking mechanism where it will not interfere with any existing handles or fixtures pre-mounted to the door. You'll need at least 2-1/8" clearance below. See Picture

For borehole backset (horizontal location of the doorknob), measure the distance from the outer edge of the door to the center of the borehole.
This is the width, height and thickness of the door itself. If you are replacing a slab (door without the jamb), fill in the exact measurements of the existing slab.
To measure rough opening height, measure the distance from the stud above the door opening to the floorboard at the bottom of the door opening.
To measure rough opening width, measure the distance from the stud on one side of the door opening to the stud on the opposite side of the opening.
Measure the existing slab, that you're wanting to replace, from the top of the door to the top of each hinge. You will format your entry in this format: Hinge 1- 10" from top of door. Hinge 2- 22.
Select which side of the door you'd like your pull/handle to be located when facing the front side of the door (the side of the opening in which you can see your track/rolling system). The back side handle will be placed on the same side of the door as your front side handle.
