Some years ago I was already a huge fan of macramé, back then I mainly made necklaces with semi-precious stones. For some time now, I have wanted a matching macramé wall hanging for my bedroom. So I decided to make it myself. By the way, this DIY is much easier than it looks. Although I had to start all over again. However, once you get the knot tying technique down pat, it’s super easy to do.
What you need:
- 1x 600g ball of knotting yarn in creamy white e.g. The Cordage Yarn from We Are Knitters.
- 1 wooden stick 32 cm long and 1.5 cm in diameter
- darning needle
1.) First cut the following cords:
- 14 cords of 114 cm each
- 1 cord à 203 cm
- 2 cords à 127 cm
- 4 cords à 178 cm
2.) Next, tie the 14 cords to the wooden stick using a reverse anchor knot.
3.) Then take the first 4 cords and tie 1 cord à 127 cm and 3 flat knots.
4.) Take the next 4 threads and tie 1 cord of 178 cm and 5 flat knots.
5.) Take the next 4 threads and knot 1 cord à 178 cm and 6 flat knots.
6.) We have reached the middle and take the 4 threads and a 203 cm cord and tie 7 flat knots.
7.) Repeat step 5, 4 and 3. Until all knots are tied.
8.) Now cut off the protruding threads on each side of the knots and sew them in the back or hide them with the darning needle.
9.) Next, cut the cords so that they taper into an even triangle.
10.) Now untwist the respective cords and, if necessary, untangle them further with the help of a comb.
11.) Cut a cord of 60 cm and knot it at the ends.
For this project I can of course recommend the macramé set from We Are Knittersthe macramé set from We Are Knitters, which I used for this. Feel free to use my code “MGM8P1JX4” for your order and let us be WAK friends 🙂
