So far, all the knots I have been using in the knotting tutorials have been square knots, or overhand knots. This tutorial introduces the Double Half Hitch. This knot is also sometimes called the Forwards Knot, as well as the Backwards Knot (two different versions of the Double Half Hitch).
Double Half Hitch Macrame Bracelet
2 colors of Yarn, 70 inches (178 cm) each (string, hemp or embroidery floss work as well)
Large Bead, with a hold large enough for 4 pieces of yarn to go through
1) Measure 15 inches (38 cm) from the end of each piece of yarn, and fold. Tie an overhand knot near the fold (depending on the size of the bead), so that the bead can just go through the loop created.
