6. Diagonal Double Half Hitch
For more intricate designs, take time to master the diagonal double half hitch. This involves pinning your project’s knot bearing cord diagonally over the strands. You’ll then need to form a double half hitch around it. To form the second row, take the next strand and pin it across, turning it into the knot bearer. As you continue along, you’ll start forming diamonds and X patterns. You can purchase the materials needed for macrame projects at Michael’s.
