Description

Fanny Zedenius gives this addictive craft a refreshing twist as she takes you through all the essentials, from everything you need to know to get started through to inspiration on how best to display your makes.

The 21 projects in Macrame include impressive wall hangings, a beautiful table runner, a stunning curtain, whimsical dream catchers and pretty plant hangers.

Beginning with the basics, the knot glossary in Macrame covers 30 of the most popular knots plus provides tips on how to create the 7 different patterns through various knot combinations. The book then takes the readers through dip-dyeing, fraying, where to buy materials and how to tackle larger projects, plus 21 projects to make for yourself. Each knot and project includes charts and step illustrations alongside beautiful, inspirational photography that clearly shows each design.

Once you have mastered the basic macrame knots, you can begin to create the designs of your dreams... the possibilities are endless.
