- 1b. Feed tails over hoop top and through loop.
- 1c. Pull to close knot. You’ll now how a hanging yarn strand bunch.
Repeat this process across top of hoop, until you’re satisfied with coverage.
Step 2: Tie individual hanging bunches to hoop bottom using the Half Hitch Knot as follows:
- 2a. Wrap yarn bunch over and around hoop bottom.
- 2b. Feel tails through loop creating by wrapping.

Directions are written for the ghost. To make the jack-o-lantern, simply swap out yarn colors and use green ribbon instead of yarn for hanger. Experiment with using another macrame knot across the top of pumpkin. The Square Knot was used in the episode of DIY This With Jennifer Perkins.
