Simple Square Knots

I did not know that the simple double knot could be used so effectively with rattail! This bracelet features a row of square knots that macrame artist would recognize immediately.  The sliding square knots make my simple piece easy to tighten or loosen depending on who is wearing it.

All I needed was some rattail and a charm.  No glue or extra components required.  John Bead has an endless assortment of charms!  This Tierracast copper Star of David is already very beautiful.  It needs a simple showcase.

Don’t the square knots look like jewels in silver rattail? I have never used this knot as a closure before today’s post.

Mastering the square knot means that I can move onto a very popular jewelry must have: the shamballa bracelet.  I’ll have samples to show in my next post!
