The Overhand knots
The Overhand knots are used during the beginning of the work for attaching of the bearing cord, but they are also used during the finishing of the work for tassels making, and for making of simple nets.
The Half Hitch
It’s done in the same way as the square knot. After making of one The Half hitch, the lower cord isn’t returned above, but placed below, and continue working in the same direction, you’ll get a spiral-shaped cord.
The book „Macramé – the art of tying knots“ is done as a manual for everyone interested in Macramé. It contains over 120 drawings and 150 photographs in color. For the beginners, everything that’s needed was given to successfully learn Macramé. The detailed instructions were given for making knots, Cavandoli bindings, strings and cords, decorative beginnings, circled bindings, clothing items, and all other interpretations that are needed for successful realization of the projects. For those that know Macramé, the works in this book could serve as inspiration for future creative activities.
The book gives a small overview of the knots and interlaces of the monasteries of the Moravian school, which gave its full contribution in the development of decorative knots and interlacing with its stone plastic.
