Macramé is a craft involving the tying of knots to create patterns. The daisy pattern incorporates macramé knotting techniques and colourful plastic beads to create a design that works well for bracelets, necklaces and key chains. The beaded daisy stitch can be substituted into other macramé designs as well.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Fold the length of macramé cord in half and wrap the folded end around a dowel. Feed the other end of the cord through the folded end and tighten, securing the cord to the dowel.

  2. 2

    Cross the left string over the right; then feed the end up and through the space between the two from back to front. Pull tight.

  3. 3

    Repeat this macramé stitch until you are ready to add a flower.

  4. 4

    String your centre bead on the right-most string and six or eight petal beads on the leftmost string.

  5. 5

    Wrap the leftmost string like you did before, but this time, run the end through the centre bead to finish the daisy flower before continuing.

  6. 6

    Repeat the basic chain and flower motif until you reach the desired length for your bracelet. Slide the finished bracelet off the dowel.

  7. 7

    Use the two loops from the other end of the bracelet and the free ends of the cord to create a knot in the bracelet. Make sure that the bracelet is long enough that you can easily slide it over your hand while knotted.
