Wondering what materials you will need to make the projects in this book?
There are 20 unique projects in 'Macramé 2' varying in size and difficulty, with smaller projects such as plant hangers for instance and large scale pieces (curtain and bed canopy for instance). In the book I encourage you to tweak projects or add other elements/techniques that the book teaches whenever you feel like it as a way of putting your own touch on your works. In other words, you can check the list below, but may want to supplement other materials once you begin.
You are able to find all the materials that the projects specifically call for in my shop. If you want to source the materials elsewhere and struggle to find the exact same thickness and type, you can of course use other materials. Be aware though that a minor change in thickness/structure can change what dimensions you need. If you increase thickness you need to add length to the cords, for instance. I recommend cutting more than you think you will need.
Plant hangersThere are three patterns for plant hangers. The first is made with 3-ply rope in four different colours, with 4 mm thickness. You need approximately 65 meters in total for this project. The second is made with 3 mm single twisted string, approximately 100 meters. The third is made with approximately 120 meters of 5 mm thick single twisted string, plus some scrap cords of coloured 4 mm rope.
Wall decorThere are six different wall decor projects and they vary in size, difficulty and materials.
Ashley wall hanging - approx. 25 meters of 10mm 3-ply rope, 250 meters of 3mm single twisted string in different colours, and thin metal wire.
Monique wall hanging - approx. 160 meters of 2.5 mm 3-ply rope and 90 meters of 3mm single twisted string.
Fields of Gold wall hanging - approx. 200 meters of 8 mm single twisted string.
Lacey wall hanging - approx. 350 meters of 5 mm single twisted string plus 150 meters of 3 mm single twisted string.
Trifle wall hanging - this project is a macramé and weaving fusion ('macraweaving'). The main base is made with 5 mm braided rope (approx. 240 meters). The rest is a mix of different coloured single twisted string with different thicknesses, and merino wool top roving (approximately 500g).
Kaleidoscope wall hanging - this is a circular pattern. You need a wooden hoop (60 cm in diameter) and approx. 250 meters of 5 mm single twisted string.
