Lark’s Head Knot Tutorial

Among the most common knots in macramé, the Lark’s Head Knot (LHK) and Reverse Lark’s Head Knot (RLHK) are generally used to attach your cords to a dowel, ring, or to another cord.

In addition to the original LHK and the RLHK, there are several other variations as well, including the Right-Facing Vertical and the Alternating Vertical. This tutorial will focus solely on the more common LHK and RLHK.

Length of cord per knot: approx. 6-7 times the length of finished knot (this ay vary depending on the thickness of filler cord or dowel).
