In this tutorial I show you how to follow a fun and fairly simple beginner macrame pattern using simple macrame knots that gives a double diamond design with a tassle. I show you what areas I found tricky, and give tips for beginners who may have never tried macrame before.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
1. 3mm or 4mm Macrame Cord:
• 3 cords cut to 48″ in length.
• 1 cord cut to 16″ in length.
2. 1″ D-Ring Keyring
4. Washi Tape (or similar for securing piece while working)
5. Macrame Comb and/or Brush

NOTE: I’m new myself to macrame at the time of this video, so I think I misnamed a couple things as I was going, but just watch what I’m doing and ignore my newbie errors LOL 😉
Hi I’m Devan, I am a professional designer, and love crafting and learning new mediums regularly. In my DIY Crafts Series I will take you through tips and tricks I learn as I follow DIY projects and learn new skills myself, showing you along the way. This is meant to make it easier for new crafters to learn quickly and with hopefully minimal frustration, and I’ll call out areas that were harder or confusing for me as I learn with you.
Thanks for watching!
