hello I'm the crafty ginger Melissa and this is another macrame plant hanger project I would also consider this a beginner project I'm going to show you how to make this and check out my other videos in this series I have four of them right now they're all beginner projects so pretty easy to figure out this is one point five millimeter rope this is made of linen this is not cotton you also need three-inch a three inch steel ring or whatever size you want for beads wooden beads is what I have here and some super sharp scissors so to begin you're going to prep your rope by cutting it this is how many buddy likes here do I have I'm going to here I have I believe three one two it's about three so about three body lengths you're going to find the center of your rope and then we're going to do a larks head knot to attach these so this is the center of my rope I'm going to put it over my steel ring and I'm going to pull the tail through that little loop that we created that's called the larks head knot okay so the first step is to find your Center two ropes that those are these two right here in the center this is called your lead cord so you're going to kind of hold that diagonally the neighbor to the lead cord is this one here that I have in my hand this is kind of confusing to show you but the easiest way I've found to show beginners is that you're putting the tail of this rope over the lead cord and then you're there's a space created between these two ropes you're going to pull it through that space and then pull it taut and you have to do that two times to secure each knot so again let me kind of separate this one out so this one is the tail and then there's a space between those two and you're going to pull the tail through I have another video on this with bigger rope this smaller rope I would say is like not exactly beginner this pattern is pretty easy but to work with this lighter weight rope is kind of hard just because it doesn't have the weight of those other big ropes and I also think like in knitting or crochet it's good to work with bigger or things you can kind of see what's happening these smaller ropes is hard to see the detail so definitely check out my other video on the half hitch knot if you have any questions that's a bigger rope and you can kind of see it more clearly so you're making a downward angle toward the ground and we're going to do that all the way to the end of these ropes that we have here I'm sorry I think I forgot to tell you we need eight of these ropes and they're three body lengths so just keep going and then you're going to do the exact same thing on the other side and if you're just starting out you know be patient with yourself because this is kind of it's not tricky once you get it but at first you're just trying to figure out which way the ropes are going and which ones the lead cord it's easy to get confused with that so just one more rope after this one here to do make sure you're doing each rope twice so you're securing the knot okay now we can move on to the other side this is the center core that lead cord for the other side so you're going to hold that diagonally take its neighbor and do the same thing you're going to find the tail of it and you're going to put the tail of the rope through this space between the two that's one and then once you get a little quicker you don't have to find the tail you can kind of just pull the rope through and again you're holding it down pointing the angle toward the ground so wherever you kind of point this lead cord is where your ropes going to go so if you're doing a bigger project like oil hanging project and you want your rope to be kind of wavy you can do that you can create that shape with your lead cord you're just going to point the lead cord wherever you want it to go okay now after we have that done we're going to do a left and right handed square knot gathering all these ropes that are in the center and we're going to use those two outside lead cords as the lead for the square knot so I'll show you what I mean that's our last knot there try to even them up okay here's your lead cords we're going to do a square knot with these two the most not the lead cord but the one on the next spot we're doing a left handed square knot gathering all the ropes in the center together and then a right handed square knot with the same ropes so you kind of end up with this diamond pattern and I'm going to scooch it up just a little bit okay so you have your square knot here in the center you're going to take the same lead cord that you were using before and you're going to do a diagonal half hitch with the next chord in the row there and the way I kind of find what's the next one is you can kind of just kind of pull these apart you can kind of see in there like this is this is the next one that I'm going to work so and then towards my next one that's the next one doesn't have to be perfect you're going to have eight ropes on each side so that's three okay so how you know that you've gotten to the end is you're going to have seven chords sticking out this way and then your lead chords that's eight and I'm just going to stick those off to the side so you can kind of visually separate them pull it down and so it doesn't pull the piece okay now this is our lead chord we're going to do the same thing I just want to show you both sides so that in case you have an issue going to the left side or going to the right side so when I finish this up and then I'll show you the next part which is I'm putting in the beads okay we have our diamond shape here to bring these together we're going to do a left and right handed square knot with the four ropes in the center just they have a nice connection there okay next step is separating the ropes out so we're going to have four ropes that come to the center if you see on this one here four that come to the center for each side and then for that go to the back so I want the center to be let's do it similar to the other side so we're going to do a left and right handed square knot about about eight inches down there's a left there's a right okay now we're going to grab our beads and take the center two ropes of that that square knot right there now we're going to feed those through this is a little bit tricky sometimes you need something to kind of poke the rope through because it will get stuck in there so I usually have a needle or a pair of scissors or something that I can kind of feed the ropes through you can just try to pull it through there we go okay now to secure it we're going to do a left handed square knot and now we're just doing only left handed square knots you can see here we're doing a twist so to secure the bead in there you have to do at least one square knot before moving it onto the or not a square knot but at least left handed before you move on to the next and we're going to do let's do 30 of these okay we have all four of our strands done here and we have 30 left hand it's knots on each one okay now what we're going to do is make sure that the forward ones are forward in the back runs are back so because we're going to take two from this strand and then two from this strand and we're going to do a left and a right handed square knot on those we're going to do that about right maybe like four inches down sorry it's kinda hard to see this these ropes are kind of tingly because they're so small there's a left there's a right okay now these two weren't worked those are going to be the neighbors for the back piece so basically you're just going around doing square knots with the two from each strand and you want them to be about the same height as the other ones here so you can see we have four strands and now they're being connected together to create the basket where the plant will hang ok these ones are a little bit trying to figure out why this one's not quite as long I'm just going to kind of stretch that out a little bit because they have the same number of knots I'm so sorry this is really tingly okay so for clarity we have two from here two from here can you squirt left and right I want them to be even okay we should have one more knot to tie you're going to end up with four knots these are really tingly down below so you have to manage your cords when you get a lot of cords like this you have to try to untangle them every once in a while okay the last step is another gathering knot which I've showed you in my other videos and that's this knot right here so you're going to get another piece this is about three-quarters of a body length oops that one's not even so I'm trying to get these all pretty even right here so they're so the basket hangs evenly so kind of move that okay now we're going to do the gathering not like another four or five inches down so you're going to face one end to the sky and then loop it around your hand I'm going left because I'm right-handed and I find it easier to do it that way so you're just going to tighten it up every time you go around this cords a little bit wrong actually because I have to go around so far but okay and then just snug it all together as you go so just kind of do as many as you think looks nice okay that looks pretty good now I'm going to put this tail through the loop we created before we're going to pull up on this there we go you can kind of see it weaving up through there okay now I'm going to cut this piece off the other one will just be kind of incorporated down here so and then just give them a nice little haircut so the chap looks good random as you want I like it to look pretty random okay see got a couple long pieces here you're going to have some cord waste that you could use for like a mini project making maybe a macrame keychain or something like that so let's test out our demo plant this is our plant I've been using for everything okay so for this one we want these two to be the front so just try to get that in the front when you sit it down in the basket and there you go and straight now you're you're not just kind of make it look more even so there's a link below this video for my three other videos from this series of plant hangers I suggest you view them all obviously and comment subscribe to my channel follow me on instagram or tag me in your post it's crafty underscore ginger I really hope you enjoyed this series it was really fun to make all of these so there you have it another pretty beginner project I would maybe you know kind of go in order for my first second this is the third video I'll have one more which is this one right here and this one has a really neat basket on it that holds holds a plant in there very securely so stay tuned

  3. แอมๆ Aem Mustafa

    Hi there if I could knit & crochet my daughters dresses& jumpers etc theses patterns of yours could be a piece of cake for me I reckon lol 😆 I’ll let you know 🤔

  4. Alyss Kennedy

    So how much actual string do you need because you said three body lines but then all that other stuff was connected to that loop already. Kind a hard to follow.

  5. Lucinha S.Oliveira

    Estou apaixonada faz com legenda em português ou espanhol desde já agradeço vou fazer para pendurar minhas plantas amei me inscrevi canal fico angustiada pq não entendo nada vc fala por favor faz devagar como nos Brasileiras não entende o idioma tem ser no olhar mesmo Bjus Deus te abençoe Crafty Ginger

  6. Kelly Markovich

    Please redo the video in an actual instructional way. It is very difficult to understand what you are doing. I really want to know how to do macrame as well as you. There are not many GOOD instructional videos out there.

  7. TiredAsAMother

    Horrible, how can anyone follow this? You don’t explain anything in a way that ppl can understand. And the camera man doesn’t focus on what you’re doing.

  8. Alecha

    not sure if missed the link, but where do you get your beads? I have trouble finding beads with big enough holes to fit macrame rope.
