- Gather the tools and materials.
- Cut 27 10ft pieces of rope and 22 4ft pieces of yarn using the scissors. Cut the copper tubing to measure 18in using the saw.
- String a 4ft piece of rope through the tube and tie for hanging, fold a single rope in half and create a larks head knot around the copper tube.
- Repeat making a larks head knot with all 27 ropes, pull them tight and push them close together centered on the copper tube.
- Take the left center rope(knot-bearing rope), use a tack to hold it in place 3 inches down, pull it diagonal down to the left and tack it in place.
- Begin tying a diagonal half hitch knot on the knot-bearing rope from right to left on the diagonal.
- Continue tying the diagonal half hitch knot using all the ropes to the left of center.
- Take the right center rope and loop it around the left center rope used for the half hitch knot on the left. This will be the new knot-bearing rope.
- Take the knot bearing rope diagonal across and over all of the ropes to its right, then tack it into place level with the knots to the left.
- Repeat the diagonal half hitch knot from left to right using all ropes to the right of center.
- Take the right center rope and loop the left center rope around it once, pull the right center rope to the left as a knot-bearing rope.
- Tie a diagonal half hitch knot to the left pulling it snug against the knots above, repeat on the right with left center rope as knot-bearing rope.
- Space the next grouping of knots 3 inches bellow the first, leave the two outside ropes on either side out of this group of knots .
- Repeat steps 5-12 tying 3 layers of half hitch knots in the same pattern, refer to step 13 for placement.
- Take the knot-bearing rope from the bottom of the three half hitch knots, continue using it as the knot-bearing rope.
- Tack it diagonal angled down, then tie half hitched knots to the center rope and repeat on the other side so they meet in the middle.
- Repeat step 15-16 to complete 2 more rows of half hitched knots, use the 2 outer ropes left out as knot-bearing ropes for the last grouping of 2.
- Take the center rope and pull it over the other ropes and tack it into place.
- Tie a larks head knot over the tacked rope with the yarn.
- Repeat with half of the yarn pieces, then tie the end of the rope to the outside of the last half hitched knot. Repeat on the opposite side.
- Trim the long ropes on the backside of the macrame short.
