How to Make a Hemp Necklace

Make a simple square knot necklace.

Rain Blanken
To make a hemp necklace, you will be tying lots of knots in the style of macramé. There are two main knots used in macramé, the larks head knot and the square knot. Once you know how to tie these two simple knots, you are on your way to making beautiful bracelets and necklaces.

What You'll Need

  • Hemp or jute twine. These can be found at your local Wal-Mart or craft store. Use a thin to medium thickness.
  • A keyring or pencil to tie your string to while you work on it.
  • Scissors [recommended scissors]
  • Measuring Tape
  • Six small beads about a 1/2" long. Glass beads look nice with hemp. All of these beads will need to have large enough holes so that two pieces of hemp can fit through them.
  • A pendant or keychain.
  • Now that you have what you need, let's get started.
