round macramé necklace

Basic knowledge of macramé knots is needing to make this beautiful piece. You can personalize this Round Macramé Necklace to fit your style with a simple tie-dye kit!
Step 1

First, cut your bamboo cords:

  • 1 x 50" [127 cm] (Working Cord)
  • 5 x 15" [38.1 cm]
  • 10 x 10" [25.4 cm]
TIP: If you need more later, you can always add as needed.
Step 2

Make a sliding knot about 10" from one end of your 50" [127 cm] cord.

Step 3

Tape this working cord, just above the loop, to your working surface.

Step 4

Now, take one of your 15" [38.1 cm] cords and fold it in half. Place your looped end under the string of your main circle, pull the strands through to complete a lark’s head knot.

Step 5

Repeat with the remaining 15" [38.1 cm] cords; then, pull the long end of your working cord to tighten the slip knot. This is the center of your macramé piece.

Step 6

Lay the working cord over your next cord and tie a half hitch. Make a second half hitch knot with the same cords.

Step 7

With the next cord, repeat Step 6.

Step 8

Work around the center circle working two half hitch knots per cord until the circle is 1" [2.54 cm] in diameter.

Step 9

You will need to add more cords when you start to see gaps between your cords. To do this, simply tie on 10" [25.4 cm] cord with a lark’s head knot and continue with your half hitch knots. Add cords as needed.
TIP: Cut more cords use all the cords you pre-cut in Step 1.

Step 10

Place the circle inside an oxidized Gold connector.

Step 11

To connect your macramé piece to the metal piece, tie the excess cords, evenly, around the metal in a lark’s head knot.

Step 12

Unravel the excess strands and comb out the ends.

Step 13

Prepare the yellow dye in a disposable cup and submerge your piece in the dye-bath as directed on the package. Rinse thoroughly and lay flat to dry.
TIP: Use a toothpick (or craft stick) to push into as well as to remove it from the dye-bath.

Step 14

Comb out ends again and trim around the circle, so the ends are even.

Step 15
Add a jump ring to your macramé pendant then add to a chain.
