Begin with four strands of cord. Making sure to leave 1cm ( at the top, tie three square knots in a row. You can tie a berry knot using a larger quantity of cords simply by using the two most outer cords on either side as the lead cords and gathering the other cords in between the square knots. You’ll need to do this when following the macramé clutch bag tutorial in this issue.
You will now feed all of the right-hand tails of cord through the right hand loop that you left at the top in Step 1. Do the same for all the tails on the left. Now pull tight to create the berry shape. Finally, using the two most outer cords on either side, tie another square knot to secure your berry knot.
