How to Macrame the Josephine Knot

The Josephine knot is SUPER pretty, and a purely decorative knot (unlike most other basic knots that have functionality as well as good looks). It is a hard knot to get your head around, as there is a lot of 'over, under, over' action. That's why it is best to do this knot the first few times with a step-by-step picture beside you, until you have got the flow of it mastered. Truth be told, I still forget exactly how this knot is created from time to time. Most commonly, you will see this knot in macrame wall hangings. It is also used in a beautiful belt pattern!
