DIY Macrame Double Half Hitch Knots Pattern Idea #3

Hey guys! Here is another intermediate pattern for you that used double half hitch knots (DHHKs). This pattern and tutorial were made by “Lots of Knots Canada”.

I used 3mm string for the other two patterns but for this pattern I am using 5mm string. If you are wanting to create one of my other intermediate patterns using 5mm string add a little extra to the set up for this pattern as this pattern is a little less dense than my other 2 intermediate patterns. Let’s get started.

Set Up – Cut 10 pieces of cord, each piece is 2 meters in length. Fold each piece in half and attach to your dowel using Lark’s Head knots. Once finished you will have 20-60cm of cord hanging below your piece. The pattern measures roughly 10 inches in length by 6 inches in width.

Use the inner left cord as your filler cord and the inner right cord as your working cord and tie a double half hitch knot (DHHK) working to the right. Using the same filler cord tie 3 more DHHKs working down and to the right.
Using the inner left cord as your filler cord tie 3 DHHKs working down and to the left.
