Before You Knot…

Pro-tip: Depending on your knot tightness, cord thickness, or your macrame prowess, you can adjust cord lengths by reducing 6 inches to 1 foot. However, for the best outcome, it’s wise to stick to the measurements I’ve provided. To anchor the basket’s base knots, a touch of glue is optional but can add that extra sturdiness.
