Macramé, unlike crochet or knitting, does not require any “needles”. You only need your hands to tie knots.

I use a contemporary styled Macramé cotton cord known as 3mm single ply - this is available in my shop here. It’s a very fine loose cord that is easy to use and unravels gently should you want to create a beautiful fringe effect

The easiest way to learn how to do this is to watch this full-length free tutorial video :

This video shows me making coasters for the second time. You can see me tie the initial knots in real time - repeated the method twice. And then when the method becomes repetitive, the rest of the knots are shown in double time

These coasters are created in 6 rings/ rows which I will explain in the following steps in the video I say rows/ring interchangeably, but they mean the same thing

Also to make the coaster with just one colour, you do not use two colours and stick with one, the video below is a bit more complex but the main thing t understand is

  1. how to start with a circle and tie the knots

  2. how to spot when you need to add extra cord in

  3. that it doesn't have to be an exact science! depending on your material and knot tightness depends on how many extra cords you will add in

  4. The best way to learn is to watch the video!
