Overview

Of the many hobbies and crafts people enjoy doing, square knotting is one of the more unusual. After all, tying square knots may not sound like all that much fun, but the challenge that comes from learning how to tie a square knot can be more fun than you can imagine!

Square knotting is a most useful accomplishment and there are so many things one can do with this comparatively simple technique. Sailors the world over have used it for ages for practical purposes and also for fashioning novelties in their spare time, during long voyages.

Square knot crafts have a close relationship to the old-fashioned work known as macramé. This word—said to be Arabic—was used to describe ornamental braids and strips which grew into bags, table runners, and other decorative and useful objects. The square tie knot is thought to have come from this craft.
