This Thursday I am featuring my newest craft I am making. I tried Macrema a few years ago but I am ready to give it a try again.
Macramé has been popular in many time periods, from Arabic weavers in the 13th century, to the Victorian era, to the 1970s. So, it’s no surprise that macrame plant hanger projects are on-trend once again.
- Macramé cord. Most importantly, you’ll need a cotton cord that’s suitable for macrame. I prefer to use a 100% plied cotton rope that measures 4mm in diamete

- Measuring tape
- wooden ring

- Make a counter-clockwise loop with the working cord, passing it under-then-over the center cords
- After making the ten Vertical Lark’s Head Knots, flip the cords over. Use the other working cord to make another ten vertical Lark’s Head Knots in the other direction.
- At the end, you should have a sinnet of knots measuring 7″. Fold the knotted section in half to create a teardrop-shaped loop. Using the two working cords, tie 2 square knots around all of the remaining cords.
