How to Tie a Half Knot Spiral

The half knot is a basic technique of macramé art. When tied over and over, it creates a spiral.

Instructions:

1. Flat knots are made using four cords (strands of yarn), two in the centre and one off to each side. Tie the four cords together at one end.

2. Pass the left cord over the centre cords and under the right cord.

3. Pass the right cord under the centre cords and through the loop created on the left, ending up over the left cord.

4. Pull the side cords to tighten the knot over the centre cords.

5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 several times to create a spiral of flat knots.
