Some time ago, my sister-in-law, asked me if I wanted to go to a macrame course -you know, those nice knotted wall hangers that you can buy yourself or make yourself! Well, I certainly thought that was a very nice idea! But on the day that the workshop would be given -you guessed it- I had to work. Because yes, during the weekend, the health care goes on. Now I got the book from Annemarie (Studio Hip en Stip) and I realized that there was a nice wall hanger in it. And that’s what I started first. During a nice walk with the dog – a week after a rather heavy breeze that went through the Netherlands – a sought a beautiful piece of wood, there were enough pieces of wood on the ground. After it was well dried and well brushed, I started with the wall hanger.
to keep a promise
Now I must say that I have promised my sister-in-law. In answer to her question for Macrame, I said that we can also just invent the wheel ourselves. Now my sister-in-law thought that this would be easier for me – and I was so premature to confirm this – and after I would have mastered the macrame, I would be able to explain it to her. Now this promise has also stuck with me. But I thought ‘I’ll start with a crocheted version first’ 🙂
Between my abundant wool residue, I found this nice color combination. Gray – with a glitter, lilac and anthracite. I really like the color combination. It is color, but again not too much. Something that suits me better: both natural colors and a touch of color. I once got the lilac ball at a party. It is from the brand Byclaire, I eventually twined it, otherwise it was not pretty full, I hooked the wall hanger with needle thickness 5mm. Byclaire also has beautiful sparkle yarn. You can find it here:
First, I did not double-wire the lilac color, but after a few rows I started again. I think this belongs a bit to me; often after a few rounds I am not satisfied, then I start again. Do you have this too?
As far as I am concerned, this wall hanger is the ideal solution for the idea of a macrame wall hanger, only then crocheted! Ideal if you do not have the seas of time to master a new manual technique. Well .. a bit then. I tied the fringes at the bottom; So a little Macrame! But yeah. I promised my sister-in-law a l, so who knows, I’m really going to macrame too! 🙂 Can you do macrames? And maybe you have tips for a good site with an explanation? My preference are explanations with movies. Let me know in the comments!!
