What is Macrame and How is it Made?

Macrame is a form of textile-making using knotting rather than weaving or knitting. Its primary knots are the square knot and forms of "hitching". These are easy to learn, making it an accessible craft for beginners.

What are the Basic Macrame Knots?

Macrame uses three basic knots:

  1. Square Knot
  2. Half Hitch
  3. Slip Knot

Let's walk you through a step-by-step guide on making a macrame cap hanger using these knots.

How to Create Your Own Macrame Cap Hanger

Materials Required

For your macrame cap hanger, you'll need:

  • Macrame cord
  • A wooden dowel, about 30cm in length
  • A hook to hang your finished product

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Begin by cutting eight pieces of cord, each around 2m long.
  2. Using a lark’s head knot, attach each cord to the dowel.
  3. Divide the cords into pairs. Start with the leftmost pair, and tie a square knot about 2.5 cm down from the dowel.
  4. Repeat with the remaining pairs.
  5. Continue tying knots until you've created a net large enough to hold your cap.
  6. Hang your cap hanger on a hook.

How Long Does it Take to Make a Macrame Cap Hanger?
