Knots are needed for many different types of craft – notably beading, knitting and crochet, and decorative knotting and braiding techniques like macrame. These four basic knots are all you need to get started with learning how to knot.
If you’d like to learn how to knot and try more knotting techniques, look out for The Knotting & Braiding Bible by Dorothy Wood, publishing later this year. Or, if you’d like to have a go at a simple knotting project, why not try our simple macrame bracelet tutorial? Buy some colourful cotton cord and get knotting!
