Macrame: The Craft of Creative Knotting for Your Home, by Fanny Zedenius
In recent months there has been an astonishing resurgence in the striking yet simple craft of macramé (first made popular in the 1970s). In Macramé, Fanny Zedenius offers a refreshing twist on the addictive craft. Beginning with the basics, she takes us through all the essentials: what you need to get started, a glossary covering 30 of the most popular knots, tips on how to create different patterns through various knot combinations, and advice on how to hang and display your makes. The book also takes readers through ombre dyeing, fraying, and customizing with beads, and includes fully illustrated step by step instructions for 22 homeware projects such as impressive wall hangings, a beautiful table runner and napkins, whimsical dream catchers, and pretty plant hangers.
