DHHK: More Than Just a Knot!
The DHHK might seem intricate initially, but here’s the deal: it’s not really that complex! It’s all about wrapping your active cords around the holding cord, securing your beautiful row in place.

You might notice the knots looking slightly different when started from the left or right. No worries! It’s all about getting familiar and practicing from both ends.

Ready for some sparkling tips? Here are 4 golden nuggets for perfecting the DHHK!

Four Jewels for the Perfect DHHK
1. The first Half Hitch Knot is your anchor. Secure it with the right tension and direction. Follow it up with the second Half Hitch Knot to lock it in place. Watch out for those gaps! Once they appear, they might grow. So, spot them early and fix them.
2. Let your holding cord show the path. It should be taut and straight. Resist the urge to yank it!
3. Perfecting the art of macrame is all about patience and practice. If a few hitches go awry, don’t be hard on yourself. With every twist and turn, you’re improving.
