Macrame Monday: How To - Josephine Knot Ring

Josephine Knot Ring Trio
 
Remember last week when we learned the Josephine Knot (AKA Sailor's Knot)?

Let's make some pretty rings out of that knot then shall we?

It'll be easy - I promise!



Step One: Braid.  Use some thin rope or hemp or ribbon or yarn. Anything with a bit of thickness to it.  I tried with a smaller material (embroidery thread) but it was too thin for this project.  Boourns.


Step Two: Hot glue braid to small piece of felt.


Step Three: Josephine Knot



Step Four: Glue knot to ring. Ta Da!

Wanna see that again?



One: Braid. You could also do a macrame square knotted ring.  That would look cool.


Two: Glue to felt



Three: Josephine knot glued to ring.

Four: Make more!







Pretty pretty pretty !!! (That's pretty times three!)

Very cute idea. Have one in every color or like 'little projects in style' said they would make great bracelets too. Thanks for sharing.
