Make Your Own Perfect Macrame Coasters!
Macramé, unlike crochet or knitting, does not require any “needles”. You only need your hands to tie knots.
I use a traditionally styled Macramé cotton cord in this pattern known as 4mm 3ply twisted - this is available in my shop here. Because it is a 3 ply cord it creates wavy effect fringes when unravelled to describe the owl's wing feathers (very cute!)
