Cut 16 pieces of string to about 80 cm each. Tie them to a wooden ring with a larks head knot: Fold each piece of string in half. Pass the looped end through the ring, then thread the string ends through the loop and tighten, resulting in two centre threads.
Tie 8 macramé knots (square knots) around the entire wooden ring using 2 right-facing and left-facing knots: every other knot to the left, and every other knot to the right of the centre threads.
Tie macramé knots between the previous knots, 4 in a row.
Then tie macramé knots between those last knots, and leave small loops between the rows. Tie 4 macramé knots under each other.
Tie 6 macramé knots under the previous ones. Leave loops on the sides of the first 3 knots by not pulling too firmly. Tighten the last 3 knots as usual.
Trim the ends and secure with glue.
Decorate your tree and gifts with beautiful macramé stars! The macramé technique involves tying knots and braiding string in various combinations and patterns. Begin by attaching the yarn to the wooden ring with a lark's head knot. This will be the base of your star. When you are finished, secure the ends with Panokitt Quick glue. Macramé can be tricky at first, but once you've gotten the hang of it, it's hard to stop.
