Supplies
Needed: 

 6mm Macrame Cord (290 yards)
 One 12inch Table Top (Acrylic, Glass or
Finished Wood)



Knots Used:





Cutting and Mounting Process



 Cut 12 cords, each 10 yards long
 Cut 84 cords, each 2 yards long
 Cut 2 cords, 36 inches long
Prepare the ends of all the cords with glue,
wax, or tape, to prevent unraveling.
It's best to prepare the ends with tape
if you are using twisted
style cord to make the Fringed
Table.




Step 1: Fold each of
the 10yard
cords in half by matching the ends.
Place them through the 3inch ring.
They should drape over the bottom
when you are holding it upright.
Tie a Wrapped Knot around the cords, using a
36inch cord. It should be at least 1.5inches
long.
After it's tightened, pull down on both halves
of the 10yard cords one at a time, to tighten
them around the ring.
Place all the cords through
the other 3inch ring. Lay this ring FLAT
on your project board.
Secure the Wrapped knot in the center of
it. The
Wrapped knot and first ring should be standing
upright.
Fan the cords out evenly, so they rest under
the second ring. Attach each cord to the ring
with a Double Half Hitch (DHH).
Hold the first ring upright so the cords
dangle. Make sure the second ring is level
and the cords evenly spaced around it.






Design Tip: Since you are
working with very long cords to make the Fringed
Table, it's important to make compact bundles so
they don't get tangled.



Bundling Long Cords
Move down 12 inches below the ring, and
wrap the cord around your hand several
times. Stop when you have about 12
inches left. Remove the bundle from your
hand carefully.






Wrap
the end around the center several times,
to hold the coils together. Wrap firmly
so you end up with a sturdy bundle that's
easy to handle. 





Pass the end under the last wrap, to
hold it in place. Pull tightly to secure
it.
As you work on the Fringed Table, pull
to get more material when needed. Tug on
the end to tighten the wraps around the
center, since the roll gets smaller as
you pull from it.

Step 2: Tie rows of
Alternating Square Knots, using four cords per
knot. Tie the knots in a circle, since you
are creating a tube, rather
than a flat design.
Stop when the design is 6 inches long.
Step 3: Divide the cords
into 3 groups consisting
of 8 cords each. Tie a sennit of
Square Knots measuring 4
inches, using two working cords and
6 fillers.
Repeat
this step with each group.
Step 4: Attach all the
cords to the 8inch ring with Double Half
Hitches. Place all the cords inside
the ring before tying the knots.
Organize the cords so they are resting in 3
groups on the ring, with equal amounts of space
between
them.
Step 5: Attach 14 of the
2yard cords to the ring, into 1 of the
spaces, between the
long cords used in the previous step.
Mount them with reverse Larks
Head knots (heads face the inside). Since
they are folded in half, you will end up with 28
cords.
Step 6: Use the
following chart to make the first inverted
V shape at the top of the Fringed Table. Use only the 2yard
cords.

Step 7:
Repeat steps 5 and 6 two more times,
adding 14 cords into the other two spaces on the
ring. 


Step 8: Using one group
of the 10yard
cords, tie a 4inch
sennit of SK (same
as step 3).
Important:
Measure carefully and push the knots close
together as you progress. The sennit needs
to be the same length as the V
pattern you just made with the shorter cords.
Tie
extra knots (or subtract some) if needed.
Repeat this
process with the other two groups of 10yard
cords.
Step 9: Attach the 2yard cords,
from all three
of the V designs, to a 12inch ring with
DHH. Pull the cords tightly as you secure
them.
The ring should be level when you are finished,
and should rest against
the Square Knots.
Step 10: Attach the three sets
of 10yard
cords to the same ring with DHH.
Add or remove knots from
the sennits as needed, so the
ring remains level.
Step 11: Use only the
2yard cords to make three more V
designs below the
ring.
Follow the chart for step
6, but reverse it, so
the first row has 7 knots. The final row
should have 1 knot, so the design will have the
point at the bottom.
Step 12: Trim all the ends
of the 2yard cords
to 3  5 inches,
so they follow
the angle of the V shape.
Unravel each cord to produce the wavy fringe. 




Middle
Section of Fringed Table



Step 13: Use each group
of 10yard
cords to tie Alternating Square knots
for the long sennits in the middle of the
Fringed Table.
Each should be
24 inches long.
Measure carefully, so
all the sennits are the same length.
Important:
When you tie the first row, switch
cords 1 and 2 as well as 7 and 8, so you use the
longest cords (2 and 7) to tie the knots.
The odd numbered rows should be tied using
cords 1  4 and 5  8.
The even rows should be tied with cords 3 
6.
Make sure you
end on a row with 2 knots (odd #).
Step 14: Attach all the cords
to the other 12inch ring with DHH.
Arrange them into the 3 groups again, with space
in between, just like you did in step
4.

Step 15: With each
group of 8 cords, tie a SK sennit
measuring 6
inches.
Switch
the cords around first, so you use the longest
ones as the working cords.
There should be 2 working cords and 6
fillers per knot.
Step 16: Bring the cords
together so the last knots tied meet
in the center of the
ring. You can tie additional SK if
needed.
Use a 36inch cord to make a Wrapped Knot
around all the gathered cords.
Step 17: Trim the ends,
and unravel each one to form the inner
portion of the fringe
at the bottom of the Fringed Table.
These cords should
be at least 8 inches long.
Step 18: Attach 14 of
the 2yard
cords into each of
the spaces on the ring, just like you did in step
5. Mount them with reverse
Larks Head knots.
Step 19: Make a V design with
the 2yard cords in each of the three
groups.
Just like in step
11, this V shape should have the point
heading downward. So the first row has 7
knots and the last row has 1 knot.
Step 20: Trim the ends so they
follow the angle of the V shape, and unravel the
cords. This produces the outer
section of wavy fringe at the bottom.
Step 21: Place the glass or
wood table top on the lower ring, so it's
supported by the metal. The long sennits
should pass around the outer edge of it.
