Retired - Mackenzie Bracelet

Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This macrame bracelet features a version of a half hitch knot that spirals and is embellished with closed jump rings for a chain-like look.
These instructions will give you a bracelet that fits a 6 inch wrist. To adjust the size please adjust the length of cord accordingly. You will also need a small piece of tape for this project.
  1. Cut a length of cord 6 feet long.
  2. 18 inches from one end, make a fold so that you have 18 inches on one side and 4 1/2 feet on the other side.
  3. Tie an overhand knot, creating a loop.
  4. Place the loop in the Mini Macrame Board, and place the short end of the cord into the bottom notch.
  5. To the longer end of the cord, place a small piece of tape on the end to create a "needle" to thread on the jump rings.
  6. Thread on the closed jump rings to the longer cord and tie a loose overhand knot to the end to keep them from slipping off.
  7. For this next step please watch the video: How to Use Closed Jump Rings in Macrame Half Hitch Spiral Knots.
  8. You will knot until you have 6 1/2 inches of knotting.
  9. When you have your desired length, put both cords together and make an overhand knot, tying both ends together. Move about a 1/2 inch from the knot and snip off the excess cord.
  10. All done!
