Blaze Bar

 
Blaze Bar

 

Description: The Blaze Bar shows what you can do when using two colors.  It looks like a double row of Square knots, but the process is slightly different.

This decorative knot is a great choice for handcrafted Micro-Macrame jewelry. Just use 1mm to 2mm cord material.

It is also wide enough for a Macrame belt, or can be part of handbag and plant hanger designs.

In the example, I used 4mm Paracord in two colors. When using this material, make sure you melt the ends to prevent the inner core from sliding out.

 


 

I found this knot on the Fusion Knots website

Design Tip: When using the Blaze Bar in a project, you would make a loop at one end if you need a clasp. You could also attach the cords to a buckle or ring.

For practicing, just fold the cords and secure them to your board, so that the portions furthest to the right and left are longer (working cords).

 
 
Curve Right Working Cord  

Step 1: Curve the right working cord (yellow) to the left.

Pass it over - under the fillers and over the left working cord.

 

 
Path of Left Working Cord  

Step 2: Curve the left working cord (purple) to the right.

Pass it over the left filler and under the right one.

Bring it to the curve of the right cord and pass it through under - over (from below).

 

 
Curve Left Working Cord  

Step 3: Move the working cord now on the left to the right.

Pass under - over - under the other three cords.

 

 
Path of Right Working Cord  

Step 4: Move the working cord now on the right  under - over the fillers.

Bring it up to the curved portion of the other cord.  Pass it through over -under (from the top).

Tighten the knot by pulling on the ends.  It helps if you pull the filler cords so they're straight.

 

 
Repeat Steps 1 - 4   Step 5: Repeat steps 1 - 4 several times, until the bar is the size you wish to make.
 

 
Square Knot  

Step 6: Tie a Square Knot to finish. Use the remaining material to make a button knot, or add a bead for the clasp. It's best if you use the two fillers, and finish off the working cords.

When using Paracord, melt and fuse the ends to prevent the core from sliding out.
