I did it before October! lol … I mean, as promised, here is the tutorial … Pictures could have been better than I know, but still. I had to change the lighting half way because I overestimated my ability to work fast … XP
Used knots: DHH, overhand knots
Fold a rope in half and make a DHH.
Tighten DHH …
Add a string to one side with the upper hand knot and add an extra loop to each side.
On the other side, add another string in the same way.
Add another string in the same way as the last two steps on the left side, and add a single string with DHH for the right side.
Use the right-hand wires as the cord and make the DHHs.
We’il use the stitches on the back.
Add a thread of a different color than stitches 2 and 3.
Turn and take another string of the second color, use it as the working wire and produce 4 DHH. For each of the middle two DHHs, use both strings marked with silly small triangles.
And it should look like this.
To close the two small domes of the heart, run over the two outer wires on both sides and use them as the holding cord. Connect the DHHs with the two internal strings.
As for the other dome, use only the strings of the second color to connect the DHHs.
Firmly pull the crossed retention cables. Add other threads from the back stitches if you wish. Cut and treat all loose ends, and have a small heart!
I imagine it could make beautiful earrings or maybe a little ring. ? Have fun!
Bringing macromeles of the 20th century here and now
I have to admit that until recently, the list of things I want to hang on my macrame walls will be at the end – when I grew up, it brought back memories of the moldy brown pieces I found in dozens of thrift stores. A particular macrame find – an owl made of twine – comes to mind. However, if you take the time to them, as proof that the flavors and trends have become a complete cycle (I’m betting the owl gets a nice penny in some old vintage boutiques right now) I’ve found myself with pleasure recently (not like that) Art.
Finally my example – my friend Jess recently bought the most beautiful wall hanging in Etsy (as you can see below) and it is full of neons to add a modern cool touch. After seeing this, I was desperate to know more about how these pieces were created – and I was very happy when Himo Art May agreed to stop running out. May did a great job of bringing the macro of the 20th century here and now (the last macromeles became perfect for me), and I was delighted that she decided to look at it – it turned out to be quite complicated – the process. It’s time to Improve your knotting skills, kids!
Things that you need:
- Wooden Dowel
- Wooden Breads
- Paint Brush
- Masking Tape
It can attach dowels to the wall – it uses a removable hook, because it’s a great way to not make holes in the wall.
It can cut the rope into 14 x 4 yard pieces and 2 x 5 yard pieces. It then begins tying the rope to the head nodes of the larvae and compiling the dowel with 5 yard pieces (one at each end) into a book.
The rest can continue with ropes.
Then it makes double half axle knot.
And it goes on and on.
By the end, May begins tying them diagonally across the ropes.
You can add wooden beads here and here before connecting the nodes.
Then each starts to connect the switch nodes using 4 ropes.
Can connect 8 of them.
And he brings them crosswise.
You can add more beads and bring the knots to the end.
It can then cut the ends of the rope.
Covers a portion of the dowel ends to paint and add a hint of neon (a woman from my own heart!)
Finally, he adds a watermelon pop to the end of the rope.
And there, hung a magnificent macrame wall. I can appreciate the work that goes into these pieces – not a craft for withered or ham!
