I am so excited to be rolling out a new micro macrame tutorial for you! It's a new design that came to me one night as I was laying there un-sleeping (one my least favorite hobbies). It's a grouping of four elliptical shapes (or horse eye or marquis shapes if you prefer) set inside diamonds outlined by parallel lines. If you look carefully, two of the shapes meet to form an infinity link.
When I was searching for a name for this one, someone (thanks, Linda!!) suggested the design resembled the intricate patterns found in Gothic windows. Then someone else (thanks, Alison!) pointed out that Gothic tracery is the term for the stonework within the window arch. I think "Gothic Tracery" is a perfectly lovely name for this pattern and so it shall be.
Allow me to introduce my newest micro macrame tutorial: Gothic Tracery!
This pattern uses mostly double half hitch knots with just a handful of larks heads. The knots themselves aren't hard, but you have to keep track of which cords you're supposed to be working with as they're heading off in all directions, so I've rated this one as best for intermediate knotters. I wouldn't recommend this for your first micro macrame project but once you've mastered the double half hitch, I'd say "go for it!".
To make the news (of a new tutorial, silly!) a little sweeter, this tut and all the others in my Etsy shop are 30% off (no code needed) through 1/1/17.
Oh, and if you don't think you're ready for an intermediate project yet, there are plenty of others from which to choose! You'll find them all here. Happy knotting!
