How to Macrame: Tighten Your Work for Uniform Looking Knots

by Macrame

From our month long series titled How to Macrame:

I know this tip might seem like common sense, but believe me, I’ve come across many crafters who don’t realize this important step in creating uniform knots. Those knots need to be tightened!

You’ll need to tighten the beginning and end knots of your project so that the ends are firmly secured.  An easy way to do this is by using pliers.  Hold each strand of cording, one at a time, with the tip of the pliers.  Firmly pull the pliers away from the cording to tighten the strands.  This will strengthen your macrame project so that it stays secure and safe. Ok crafters, carry on!
