3 Super Easy DIY Bookmark Patterns for Macrame Beginners

Easy beginners macrame projects start with basic knots. Basic knots which are absolutely essential and classic knots being used by the most advanced macrame artists. If you can play around with the basic knots, you will be knotting these with your eyes closed or more realistically whilst chilling watching Netflix!

That ability to be able to immerse your mind into a focussed activity like crafting is so healthy for your mind! It releases happy hormones (dopamine) in your brain which helps reduce stress and makes you feel happy when you get that sense of accomplishment! So if you need a bit of mindful crafting, or someone else you know needs it, give this one a try.

These 3 patterns are all based on the classic macrame knot called a Square Knot. Start with design one if you have not done any macrame before and then move your way along the other patterns for increased complexity and to challenge yourself a little more. Make it fun and play with different colours or materials too.
