Equipment and supplies
Macramé, unlike crochet or knitting, does not require any “needles” and instead just your hands to tie knots. I use a traditional styled Macramé Cotton Cord which is available in my Etsy shop link below. Its soft, easy to use and unravels gently should you want to create a shaggy fringe effect. You will need a wooden Dowel, stick or branch to make this piece also. I have filmed this video at my desk with it raised at an angel, although, normally when making bigger pieces I use a clothes rail and hang my dowel, so work standing up. This is why my hands are a little clunky to begin with in these videos!
