Description: The Double
Buttonhole Stitch is a vintage pattern made with
Knot. The Square Knot
is also part of the design.
In the early days of Macrame, the Larks Head
was called the Buttonhole Knot.
It was named that because it was frequently used
in patterns that require buttons, such as vests.
This decorative knot can be used as a clasp for
necklaces, bracelets, belts and handbags, as
well as for clothing.
Scallops and the Buttonhole
Clasp are related techniques,
and are often used together in the same Macrame
You need two 18-inch and two 36-inch cords to
practice this design. Secure them to your
project board or work surface, so they are vertical.
Mentally number them 1 - 4, moving left to
right. The long
cords should be on the outside
(1 and 4).
