bernat® maker home dec™ macrame wall hanging

Bring some color into your home with this easy and on trend wall decoration.
Step 1
Cut 16 strands of yarn approx 4 yds. [3.5 m] long.
Step 2
Divide 16 strands into 4 groups of 4 strands. Holding 4 strands together, fold each in half and tie onto dowel, using lark's head knot (click here to see diagram). Repeat for each of the groups.  
 
TIP: Tape dowel to work surface for ease of working.  
Step 3
Adjust knots on dowel so they are evenly spaced, approximately 2” [5 cm] apart.
Step 4
Divide each group into 4 groups of 2 strands. From this point on, hold these 2 strands together and treat each group of 2 as one strand.
Step 5
Work Square Knot Rows as follows:
• Square Knot Row 1: Tie one square knot (click here to see diagram) in each of the 4 groups, working 2” down from dowel. (4 knots in this row)
• Square Knot Row 2: Taking the right-most 2 strands from the first group and left-most 2 strands from the second group, tie one square knot 2” down from previous knot. Repeat across, working knots with 2 strands from groups 2 and 3 and groups 3 and 4. (3 knots in this row)
• Square Knot Row 3: Taking the left-most 2 strands from the first group and left-most 2 strands from the second group, tie one square knot 2” down from previous knot.
• Taking the right-most 2 strands from the second group and left-most 2 strands from the 3rd group, tie one square knot 2” down from previous knot. Repeat across, working knots with 2 strands from groups 3 and 4. (4 knots in this row)
• Square Knot Rows Four and Five: Repeat Square Knot Rows Three and Four. (click here to see diagram) 
 
TIP: Do not tie knots too tightly. Tighten strands just enough to secure knot.   
Step 6
Trim remaining yarn evenly.
