How can I make this woven curtain tie-back?

It seems like a person with rope, beads, and a history of making friendship bracelets could do it. Link inside.

This curtain tie-back looks like something I could make, but I don't know what the knots are called, or what the weaving style is called. Instruct me?

Best answer: I think the square knot instructions on this page might do the trick.

Best answer: That reminds me of the paracord bracelet patterns that I see everywhere, just made with a more natural looking material. The bead might be the hardest thing to source, since it looks like at least two lengths of rope go through the hole.

macrame curtain tie back

This phrase will google you to YouTube instructions, etc…

yes, it's macrame, which is making quite a comeback in the last couple of years.

Response by poster: Thanks! That certainly does look like the paracord bracelet. That seems to be the same style. And the linked macrame strands from Serene Empress Dork gave me the idea that I could do different styles for the curtains in different rooms. (Look at that spiral one!) The beads I already have from a previous craft where I was able to purchase large bore ones, coincidentally, so I'm hoping those work. I might paint them.
