So, you may have guessed by now, that I'm willing to give any yarn-based craft a try. Whether it's knitting, crochet, weaving or felting (which I am yet to try...), they all have their place and where possible if they can be completed within a short period of time, whilst leaving you with something impressive looking, all the better!
At Depop - where I work - we had a line up of crafty workshops for colleagues in the evenings during May for Mental Health Month, so I stepped up and offered to teach Macrame! Had I done macrame before? No!.. but, I stock the fab kits from Hoooked (Only £9) and have a lot of their beautiful t-shirt and cotton yarns, so I got to learning.
All you need is a wooden ring, some beads and about 18-21m of a thick rope or yarn.
There are 3 main knots of macrame - all easy to google and thankfully one is half of the other - so really there's only 2! The loop knot, square knot and half-square knot is all you need to cover. Then it's up to you to get creative and combine them to develop a beautiful plant hanger!
Within an hour or so, you'll have something beautiful, functional and the platting and knotting will send you to a serene and lovely place of meditation.
