    Love the Josephine macrame’ knots! They’re a challenge but once you get the hang of it its worth it! Once in awhile I’ve had to drag out my macrame’ book :)

    I haven’t used the Josephine knot in a long time;and done this way it definitly does look like a celtic knot, which just gave me a necklace idea. Also, this knot looks really cool in two colors.
