I love versatile patterns, and the wave braid is one of my all-time favorites. It works perfectly as an add-on to just about any design.

You can use it as layers in wall hangings, supports in plant hangings, or even keychains.

Did you know that you can ramp up the wave braid’s versatility just by changing the colors?

That’s right! By varying the color combinations in your wave braid pattern and changing the position of those colors in the design, the wave braid can look completely different.

The knotting pattern stays exactly the same, so it’s a super easy way to shake up your designs.

In this tutorial, we go over two variations of the wave braid pattern: one with three colors and one with two colors. Just wait to see how different they look!

This wave braid pattern is sennet, a unique knotting pattern that can be incorporated into other designs or used on its own.

Download our 50 Knots and Sennets free eBook to learn more about knots and sennets. It’s a great tool to broaden your knotting repertoire and improve your skills. It’s also the perfect tool to have when you’re creating your own designs.

If you’re keen to ramp up your skill set to macramé master, our Bochiknot Macramé Community on Patreon is just the place for you.

Members also have access to our entire library of patterns and tutorials, so you find something you like, regardless of your current skill level.

On Patreon, we also go over creating your own designs.

We cover the entire process in great detail, starting at the inspiration stage, walking through the planning stage, and finally, creating that unique masterpiece.

Cord & Supplies

Macrame Cord

Materials & Supplies

  • Dowel

You can find all these cords and supplies in our shop. I used 3mm 3ply Strand Twist cord from our Lush Giza range in Butterscotch, Amber, and Magenta.

Suggested Cord Lengths

  • 3 x 150cm (59”)

STEP-BY-STEP 

Creating the 3-Color Wave Braid Pattern

Step 1:
Attach all the cords onto a dowel using Lark’s Head knots.
Attach the first two cords next to each other.
 
Attach the third cord so that the loop ends are on the outside of the pattern.
 
Before tightening the third knot, weave the middle four cords through the loop.
 
 
Step 2:
Separate the cords into three groups: Three to the left, two in the middle, and one on the right.
 
Step 3:
Use the left group of cords to make a loop over to the right.
 
Take the right cord underneath and through the loop on the left.
 
Tighten this weave.
 
Repeat this to the left.
 
 
Repeat this process as many times as you want.
 
And there you have a gorgeous three-color wave braid to use in just about any project.
Creating the 2-Color Wave Braid Pattern
Step 1:
Attach all the cords to a dowel using Lark’s Head knots. Two cords of the same color should be on the left, with the second color to the right.
 
Step 2:
From here, the knotting process is the same as for the 3-color wave braid.
Separate the cords into three groups: Three to the left, two in the middle, and one on the right.
 
Step 3:
Weave the group of three cords underneath the middle group to the left. Then, weave the single cord on the right through to the left.
 
Tighten the weave.
 
Repeat this to the left and to the right as many times as you want.
 
And there, you have a wave braid pattern that looks completely different from the first one. Where will you use these?
