But how does one go about incorporating knot magick into a personal spell? If you're not already familiar with the basics of spellworking it would be advisable to first consult some of the many books available on the subject before trying your hand at knot magick. Though it's not vital, it is fun and magickally helpful to use color correspondences that match your goal or need as well as choosing a material with properties that match with what you want to achieve.

Buy or find a special strand of leather, ribbon, or pretty plump satin cord to use. Most decorative satin cording is somewhat thick, so you'll need 48" to tie thirteen knots 2" apart. The first and last knots should be 2" from the ends. When your cord is finished it can be kept by the bed side, stored in a spell box, or even carried in a bag.
Knot For DreamcatchersThere are probably as many dreamcatchers as there are dreams theses days. While browsing online I noticed that in photographs of dreamcatchers sections of the webbing area are tied together as in macrame rather than looped as in weaving. It caught my eye because I was taught that knots should not be used to weave a dreamcatcher web lest the knot trap a spirit and bind it or an unwanted dream to the sleeper. Instead of tying the weaving it should be looped over itself. Looping holds the web together by natural tension; After all, a dreamcatcher is supposed to represent a spider web, and spiders don't tie knots. The issued tied up my attention, so I thought that this would be an appropriate place to share my view. Whether or not you choose to knot may simply be a matter of personal preference.
