Inverted V Pattern






This V pattern is
very similar to the first, only it's inverted,
which means upside down.
This design is sometimes called an increasing
pattern, since you add
cords which
each new row.
Step 1: Youll need 8 folded or
mounted cords for this design. Mentally number
them 1  16.






Tie
the first ASK with cords 7
 10. 






Step 2:
Alternate the cords and tie
the 2nd row, with cords:
5  8
and 9  12

V Pattern  Inside






This Alternating V Pattern is unique because the
right and left edges are straight, with the
diagonal edge on the inside.
Step 1: Youll need 10 cords
folded or mounted, so you have 20 cords to work
with. Mentally number them 1  20.

row of ASK with cords:
1  4
and 17  20







Step 2:
Tie the 2nd row of ASK with cords:
3  6

V Pattern  Double Edge





In some Macrame projects, you may be asked to
create Alternating V patterns where there are two
diagonal edges (inside and outside).
This type of design is unique in that there are
only two
knots in each row, except for when you
make the point at the bottom.
Step 1: You need 10 cords folded
or mounted, so you have 20 cords to work with.
Mentally number them 1  20.






For the first
row, tie the ASK with cords:
1
 4 and
17  20







Step 2:
The ASK in the 2nd row are tied with cords:
3  6
and 15  18







Step 3:
For the third row, the ASK are tied with
cords:
5
 8 and 13  16







Step 4:
The ASK in the 4th row are tied with
cords:
7
 10 and 11  14







Step 5: To make the
point of the Alternating V Pattern, tie
one ASK with cords 9  12.
The black lines indicate the double
angles on the inside and outside edges.









Inverted V Pattern  Double Edge





This Alternating V Pattern is the inverted
variation of the design above. There are only two
knots in each row, except for the first, which
forms the point of the V shape.
Step 1: You need 10 cords folded
