Blaze Bar

 
Blaze Bar

 

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

This decorative knot is a great choice for handcrafted Micro-Macrame jewelry. Just use 2mm cord material.  You can get Parachute cord in that size, and Satin cord would work well, too.

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

Size 550 Parachute cord was used in the example shown. When using this material, make sure you melt the tips with a flame, to prevent the inner core from sliding out.

 


 

I found this knot on the Fusion Knots website

To practice, you two two cords folded in half and secured to your board.  Mentally number the four cords. 

The working cords are cords 1 and 4.  

 

 
Cord 4  

Step 1: Curve working cord 4 to left, passing over cord 3 and under cord 2.

Pass it over the working cord 4.

 

 
Cord 1  

Step 2: Curve the working cord 1 to the right. Pass it over cord 2 and under cord 3.

Bring it up slightly, then pass it under - over the curved area of working cord 4.

Tighten the knot by pulling on the working cords, while holding cords 2 and 3 steady.

 

 
Cord 4  

Step 3:  Move working cord 4, which is now on the left, under - over - under the other three cords, heading right.

 

 
Cord 1  

Step 4: Move working cord 1, which is now on the right, under cord 3 and over cord 2.

Bring it up slightly, then pass it over -under the curved portion of working cord 4.

Tighten the knot by pulling on the ends.  The filler cords should be pulled, so they are straight.

 

 
Repeat Steps 1 - 4   Step 5: Repeat steps 1 - 4 several times.
 

 
Square Knot  

Step 6: Tie a Square Knot to finish the Blaze Bar. 

You would now finish off the ends in the most appropriate manner for the project you are making.
