macrame owls by Jolanta Surma
Aren't they beautiful? Jolanta has been focusing on creative macrame for a long time. I have been doing macrame longer than her but only do simple cords that children can learn. (I don't have a lot of patience)
I keep to easy to complete knotting like the hemp cord on this real 4 leaf clover pendant.If you would like instructions, online, for beginner's macrame please visit Elaine's site.
WHAT IS MACRAME? A type of textile-making using knotting of threads. The main knots used are the full hitch and double half hitches and the square knot.
Macrame was done as long ago as the 13th-century when Arab weavers knotted the end threads on rugs, towels and shawls.
