How to use this book – from the author
‘Whether you are a beginner or have previous experience with macramé, you will find this book an excellent tool to help you start knotting your own macramé projects. If you are a beginner, I recommend reading through Macramé Secrets first and then trying out one of the easier plant hanger or wall hanging projects in the project section, found at the beginning of their respective sections. While working on a project, refer back to the knots section for instructions. If you already have knotting experience, you may want to try out some of the more advanced projects found later on in each section, or try knotting some basic patterns from the pattern section to design your own projects.’
Beautiful, modern projects to try at home
Introduction and Basics
Choosing the right material is an essential part of macramé, because the design can look very different depending on what elements you use. Try different materials to find your personal style.
Tools & Equipment
Some tools are essential in macramé, while others just make the knotting much easier. Here are some suggestions for your macramé toolbox.
This knot gallery will take you through a total of 34 different knots. At the heart of macramé are just a handful of simple knots – learn the basic square knot, clove hitch and lark’s head knot and you will be good to go. Add in the half square knot, half hitch, Josephine knot and crown knot and you will be able to make marvellous creations. I promise that the knots in this book are all you will ever need to know in order to become an expert at macramé.
This section shows you the various ways of combining knots to create different patterns. Repeat or combine these patterns in wall hangings or other projects to make your own designs. When you try out the projects in this book, you will also get to practise some of these patterns.
