Macramee - Another String Art

Macramee is another very lovely string art, invented by sailors as history tells. There are just a few basic knots with loads of variations. I find that for wire work the square knot works the best. It is also one of the simpler ones, once learned never forgotten.
So here I show you a bracelet done in square knot with copper wire, 20g for the core and 24g for the knotting.
You should try it, it's fun!

  1. I have been working up the courage for ages to try some macramee knots with wire, this looks fab in wire. The main one I would love to try is the Josephine knot but it will just have to wait for a while.
