Double Half hitch is a knot in which, as the name itself suggests, 2 half hitch knots are made. In Macrame, this knot is a very important element – considered the most basic, starter knot for a lot of macrame projects. The half hitch knot is made on a cord (the holding cord), one after the other to form the double half hitch knot. It is also called a Clove hitch knot.
The double half hitch knot needs a minimum of two cords to a maximum of any number.
How to make a Half hitch knot
Follow the instructions given below.
First you have to attach cords to a surface (here I have used a ring) using Lark’s head knot. Check out the tutorial to make lark’s head knot here.
Now take the left end cord and place it diagonally over the other cords.
Take the next cord and over the diagonal cord to make a loop.
Now wrap it around the diagonal cord and pull it through the loop.
Tighten the cord around the diagonal cord and you have a single half hitch
Repeat the process to complete the double half hitch
Now, follow these steps with remaining cords.
The Half hitch knots can be done in a straight line or diagonally as the design demands it
