#PSimadethis - Macrame Necklace Grab a spool of rope and loop around your thumb. Weave over and under your fingers, back and forth until you create 2 rows of rope of each finger. Remove the bottom string over the top on each finger, until you leave just one row left. Continue to weave, always creating 2 rows of rope and pulling the bottom rope over the top. After you create your design, remove from the fingers, loop the strand through all the finger holes, add beads and chain.
