Here's what Dottie had to say about her tutorials:

I've gotten such a good response to my macrame tutorial that I decided to add more knots! So, here are 12 of the basic knots. Enjoy........

People have been tying knots since the beginning of time and they serve both utilitarian and decorative purposes. It is a fascinating combination of art and science.

I hope that these step by step photos will take some of the mystery out and encourage you to try it on your own.

By the way, a knot can have several different names, so don't be surprised if you find these same knots under different names.
