How I Used One Repetitive Knot To Create This Macrame Heart Wave Vine Pattern

The heart wave vine pattern is one of my macramé favorites!

This gorgeous, beginner-friendly pattern is perfect for making a lanyard, wristlet, or even headband and is easily incorporated into other projects.

It's also super easy since it only uses one knot - the double half hitch knot.

With love just around the corner, we will be incorporating some hearts into our macramé pieces, just in time for Valentine's day :)

Now on to the macrame heart wave pattern!

This project should take about 10 minutes, depending on your skill level.

Cord & Supplies

To create this pattern, you will need:


  • 3mm Cotton Cord
  • Dowel/stick to make the project from

Cord Lengths Needed

  • 2 x 200cm 

Creating The Heart Wave Vine Pattern

Step 1: Attach both cords to the dowel using lark's head knots.

Step 2: Make three diagonal double half hitch (DHH) knots, using the far left cord as the anchor cord.

Step 3: Make two DHH knots to the left, using the third cord from the left as an anchor cord. This forms the first part of the heart.

Step 4: Using the same anchor cord, facing it to the right, make one DHH.

Step 5: Use the same anchor cord, facing it to the left, and make a DHH to the left. This forms the top part of the heart pattern.

Step 6: Face the anchor cord to the right and make two DHH knots to the right.

Step 7: Make three DHH knots to the left using the far-right anchor cord. This forms the first curve of the wave pattern.

Step 8: Using the third cord from the right as an anchor cord, make two DHH to the right.

Step 9: Face the anchor cord to the left and make one DHH to the left.

Step 10: Face the anchor cord to the right and make one DHH to the right.

Step 11: Face the anchor cord to the left and make two DHH knots to the left.

Step 12: Make three DHH knots to the right using the far left anchor cord.

Repeat this pattern once more.

And that's a wrap!

Now you have a gorgeous macramé heart pattern to use in just about any design you can imagine.

If you need an extended design, repeat the pattern a few more times until it's long enough to meet your desired needs.


Much love,
