What’s the Square Knot Buzz About?

While the Square Knot is a breeze to pick up, mastering the swift moves and getting that finger placement just right might need a wee bit of practice. Flipping between the left and right might seem like a tango at first, but don’t sweat it. Here are my golden nuggets of advice:

Three Stellar Square Knot Tips:

1. Begin your Square Knot always from your preferred side, be it left or right. Keeping this uniformity helps avoid slip-ups.
2. Got lost in between? Spot which side flaunts a loop – that’s your cue on which side to proceed.
3. A consistent Square Knot game requires evenly tightened cords. Aim for that smooth and uniform look in your patterns!

Remember, patience is key! Every knot you tie brings you one step closer to mastery. And if you’re looking for more wisdom on the Square Knot, grab my Free Macrame Knot Guide!

Start by fastening two cords to your handy dowel using a Lark’s Head Knot, which gives you four cords to play with. And if you’re curious about knots galore to craft wall art, earrings, plant hangers, and more, my Free Macrame Knot Guide is your go-to!

Step-by-Step Square Knot Dance:

1. Shape your outer left cord into a ‘4’. Let the outer right cord hop over it.
2. Sneak the outer right cord beneath the central duo and glide it through the 4-figure.
