Knot magic is mah favourite :DDefinitely planning to use these to make my own intricate knot spells and crafts.

- Two Ways to Tie a Square Knot
- Alternating Square Knot
- Larks Head Knot (which is used in lots of jewelry tutorials I post)
People do not do enough fucking knot magic in my opinion.
I’ve definitely readapted a few spells to incorporate intricate patterns and designs - especially with beads and other items <- which I have done before [le gasp].
I’ve always wanted to try knot magic. I’ve just never had a need for it. At least I don’t think I have. lol
Hold up here a minute. Let’s check to see if you may have a need for it or even an interest - since you wanted to try it.
You do realize that knot magic can be used for about fucking everything?
Capture wind? Check.
Make money? Check.
Witches Ladders? Check.
Cursing a motherfucker? Check. [Think - tying someone up, tying someone up in knots]
Etc etc etc.
It’s just another form of practicing for particular methodology. A lot of people knot spells into their clothing or accessories [ie various prayers] and use binary coding in order to do so. A lot of people do other things like have the rope that they are using mean specific things [obviously colors], but I’m talking different types of things ie ribbon vs. scratchy old rope.
Some people unknot the knots to execute, some knot to execute the spell.
Knot magic is very versatile, but more importantly it’s really easy to use.
Have you ever made a friendship bracelet?
Have you ever braided your hair?
Have you made a flower necklace/crown?
These things can be part of knot magic.
Always try a spell if you want to try it. I try shit like change me into a mermaid because I fucking can. Don’t think you need to have a haughty reason to actually perform magic. Break out of that cycle. And even if you do a knot magic spell - you can always undo it [assuming that the undoing to the knots is not part of the execution] and redo it. And start and stop.
You can also train yourself on other types of things like pattern design and other types of knots that are useful for your every day life.
I love macrame! I’ve been doing the square knot and half knot patterns since I was a kid. Those are the only two patterns I know, so I’m super grateful for this post! I would have never even thought to use it in knot magic!
