Adventure 28 ~ How To Tie A Maedate Knot

maedate knotIn 47 years, I’ve never tried macrame and so today’s challenge is a decorative knot-tying adventure!

I have chosen to learn how to tie the Maedate Knot . This knot was inspired by the kuwagata, or twin-horned crest, of the samurai helmet.

I followed this brilliant (and very short) YouTube tutorial which also gives more fascinating information about the origins of this knot.

Watch me in action with a piece of old climbing rope here 🙂 ~

I am just going outside and may be some time.
