DIY Macrame Intermediate/Advanced Tutorial: Reverse DHHK Multi-Coloured Pattern! – Please see below for materials and written instructions.
-3mm Single Strand Twisted String (Colours: mustard, speckled navy, and burgundy/soft fruit)
Hey guys! I’ve been focusing on the reverse double half hitch knot for the last couple of weeks. Today I have one more intermediate/advanced for you that will show you how to create a multi-coloured design.
Okay let’s get started on today’s tutorial.
Set-up – Cut 2 pieces of 3mm burgundy string, 2 pieces of speckled navy string, and 3 pieces of mustard string. Fold each piece in half and attach to your dowel using a Lark’s Head knot. This pattern creates a diamond that is 3 inches wide and just over 3 inches in length.
To complete this pattern we will tie a total of 13 rows of reverse double half hitch knots. Alternate between tying rows of 6 then 7 reverse double half hitch knots as you complete this pattern. Pay close attention to which cord I am using as my working cord and which cord that I am using as my filler cord – this determines what colour cord is visible from the front of your work.
I’ve included a pattern in the description which identifies the working cord colours moving left to right for each row.
Y = Yellow, R = Burgundy, B = Blue
Row 1: Y, Y, Y, Y, Y, Y
Row 2: Y, R, Y, B, Y, R, Y
Row 3: R, Y, B, B, Y, R
Row 4: Y, Y, B, Y, B, Y, Y
Row 5: Y, B, Y, Y, B, Y
Row 6: Y, B, Y, R, Y, B, Y
Row 7: B, Y, R, R, B, B
Row 8: Y, B, Y, R, Y, B, Y
Row 9: Y, B, Y, Y, B, Y
Row 10: Y, Y, B, Y, B, Y, Y
Row 11: R, Y, B, B, Y, R
