First off, the original tutorial called for a ball of hemp cord. There was a link to that but it was no longer available and I couldn't see what it actually looked like. When I think of hemp cord, I think of a rather sturdy but thin type of twine which doesn't look like what was used. I went on Amazon to see its' list of hemp cord, but nothing really looked like the type pictured in the basket. Most were thin - although there was a hemp rope, but I didn't want to use a rope. So, since I already had lots of different color macrame cords on hand - I picked out a lavender shade to use.Next, the instructions said to cut nine groups of four cords, 25" long, taping five groups down vertically, placing each group about 1/2" apart.
When reaching where you began, tuck the last group of cords through the arc created by the first group. Then begin tucking the ends of the group cords under or behind several of the weaving cords.
While making the spiral knots, if you twist the spiral knots closer together, a somewhat new look will emerge for a chunky more sturdy design. Perfect to use as a handle!
Now, it's time to meet the other participants and their projects!
