Macrame Violet Flower

Step-by-step tutorial

This flower is very easy to make - there is only one knot that you need to use! 

Take around 3 yards of 0.5 - 1 mm cord (I used 0.5 mm satin cord and the flower turned out 1" in diameter).

1. Double the cord and pull 3 beads through it, make a simple overhand knot underneath.

 2. Using one of the ends as a working cord and another - as a base, start making Frivolite / Lark's Head knots.

3. Make 8-9 knots and make a loop, then tie the ends between the 1st and 2nd knots - this will be a smaller petal.

 4. 13-14 knots make a bigger petal.
