CORDS: Macramé

The words derives from the Turkish (or Persian or Arabic) for fringe. Macramé is knots; mostly half hitches and square knots. It was very popular in the sixties, and is back around. This time, chokers knotted from hemp twine and decorated with beads are a very big favorite. Hemp and linen are especially good for knotting; they are not too slippery to hold knots, or too skinny to manipulate. There are many other cords that will work well; see the jute in the basketry section, the waxed cotton and the white cotton blend cords in this section. The T-pins below, and the netting shuttles, listed with the hammock and netting materials, are very handy.
