    Do you want to combine macrame knots by yourself?
    This app will be your best choice!

    Firstly you should know the basics!
    Once you know the basics, it's easy to learn Macrame.
    You can use scrap pieces of cord and practice each of
    the decorative knots individually.

    You can also choose a project from the many
    free patterns in this app, and learn Macrame while
    you are making something. As you become more
    and more familiar with how the knots are combined
    to form artistic designs, you can create your
    own unique patterns.

    The Basic knots found in most Macrame patterns. Just
    click on the images of the decorative knots you want
    to learn. The step-by-step process, with photos, will
    show up. If you want to learn Macrame, it's important
    to know how to tie ALL the basic knots.

    To learn Macrame properly, we recommend that ALL beginners practice each of the knots, patterns, or designs at least twice, before making any project.

    We've included instructions for tying some unusual knots as well. "Vintage Macrame", as I like to call it, is a real interest. Some of the knots used in the early days of this craft are truly unique. Many of these techniques have been neglected in today's patterns. Some of them are a bit more challenging to learn, but definitely worth the time to do so. These decorative knots are indicated by a + symbol.

    In addition, there are instructions for "Celtic Knots". These highly artistic, interwoven designs are not very well known. They are beautiful and perfect for making handcrafted jewelry and fashion accessories.

    "Chinese Macrame" uses very complex and symbolic knots. Some have been around for over 2000 years. Entire families would work on a variety of combinations to form new patterns. They would then be handed out during celebrations such as weddings. These techniques are quite challenging to master. But if you follow the step-by-step process for each of the individual Chinese knots, you can combine them into your own works of art.
