    Macrame Cord & Materials Used

    You will need the following materials to create the diamond lace pattern:

    How to Tie a Diamond Lace Pattern

    For today’s project, I’ll be using 3mm macrame cord in the color natural.

    You will need four strands of cord, each 300 cm long, folded in half.

    Start by attaching these cords to a dowel using Lark's Head knots.

    Creating the Diamond Lace Pattern

    Starting with Diagonal Double Half Hitch Knots

    Step 1

    • Use four strands of 300 cm long cords folded in half and attached onto the dowel with lark's head knots.
    • Using the two cord in the middle make a diagonal double half knot.
    • Make three more diagonal double half hitch knots to the left.

    Pro tip: After completing the row of diagonal double half hitch knots to the left, make sure to pull on the anchor cord to tighten the knots.

    This will make the knots look neat and uniform. 

    Step 2

    • Repeat the pattern on the right side, using the middle right cord as the anchor cord for three diagonal double half hitch knots to the right.
    • Tighten the knots by pulling the anchor cord.

    Step 3

    • Start the next row of diagonal double half hitch knots with the middle two chords, making two knots to the left.
    • Repeat on the right side using the middle right cord as the anchor cord for one knot.
    • Close the inner diamond shape by making diagonal double half hitch knots in the opposite direction. 
    • *Note: Be careful not to over-tighten to maintain the diamond shape.

    • Use the inner cords to make three diagonal double half knots to the right on the right side.
    • Maintain the tension to keep the diamond shape.
    • On the right side, make three diagonal double half knots to the left.
    • Close off the outer diamond with a diagonal double half knot to the left.
    • Ensure the working cord is always at the back when making the loop.

    Expanding the Pattern with Fan Out Design

    Step 6

    • To start the fan out pattern, take the third cord from the left as your anchor cord. Make two double half-hitch knots to the left using the next left cord.
    • Now, you’ll flip it back over for two double half-hitch knots to the right.

    • Use the same technique with the middle left cord as the anchor, repeating the knot process. Make three DHHK to the right
    • *Note: The goal is to create a balanced, symmetrical shape.
