Start by learning 21 key knots, all shown clearly using step-by-step photography. Learn how to use natural materials to dye your yarn, as well as how to store your dyed yarn until you are ready to use it. Key safety advice is given here, as well as helpful tips for working with large pieces of macrame, knotting from an irregular-shaped support and keeping an even tension.
The 16 projects are divided into 4 chapters: macrame on the wall, macrame to hang, macrame for outdoors, and macrame to decorate. They range from reworked classics such as the wall hanging and the plant hanger, which have been given a fresh, Insta-ready twist, to a lantern, table runner, mirror hanger, rug and tassels. Each project clearly explains which knots to use, how to cut your yarn, how long the project will take and a difficulty level, and step photographs are provided as necessary. The projects are easy to follow, genuinely desirable and, best of all, really simple to make!
