How to macrame the alternating half hitch knot ring?
Step 1: Make the half wire ring
1st, cut a length of 10cm aluminum wire;
2nd, fold the wire in half and wrap one around the other for 2 or 3 times;
3rd, twist the two wire ends until the length get 1/2 of your finger circumference;
4th, make a wrapped loop with the longer wire end;
5th, curve the prepared wire component around a same size marker pen or something else.
Step 2: Macrame the alternating half hitch knots
1st, prepare a length of 30cm long suede cord;
2nd, attach the suede cord to one loop by tying one lark’s head knot;
3rd, take the right end and tie a half hitch knot around the left one;
4th, regard the left one as working end and tie another half hitch knot around the right one;
5th, keep tying half hitch knots with two cord ends alternately for the rest 1/2 ring part;
6th, pass the two cord ends through the other loop. Tie a square knot to finish the macrame part.
Seal the cuts with several drips of glue if necessary!
Try the processes above with everything around, like fabric, nylon thread, etc.
