Square knot, also known as flattened or Macramé knot, is the second basic knot. It consists of two half-knots, and it’s made with three or more cords, but four cords are most commonly used.
You will understand the making of the square knot the best if your cords are of different colors. The rule is that if the cord you’re starting a knot with runs under the base knots, then it will always remain under the base knots. If you’re working with two differently colored cords, any eventual mistake is noticeable right away.
By making this knot with more knots in the bar, starting part and knotting cords will change roles in every next row.
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.
