What is Macramé?

We Are Knitters -

The art of tying decorative knots is known as Macramé.

It’s done by hand, without needles, by weaving threads or cords together into simple or intricate, knots.

Macramé has become very popular again in the last few years, and there are more than 50 types of different knots.

The only materials necessary to make a macramé project are pima cotton, the wooden joints, and a surface to fasten your project to (usually a stick or wooden ring).

Some examples of macramé “knots” include: The chevron, Indian braid, diagonal, zigzag, stopper knot, overhand knot, double braid, single braid, square knot, infinity knot, half knot, etc.

With so many knots and so many names it can be hard to decide where to start, so we recommend beginning with something simple, that happens to also be all the rage in decoration: macramé plant hangers.

We’ve put together 5 kits that you can combine to create a modern atmosphere. The kits contain everything you’ll need: Pima Cotton, Wooden Beads and Wooden Rings.
