Let’s get started!

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!)

Method- Video Tutorial

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

This video shows me making just 3 basic knots!

a larks head knot to secure the lengths of cotton to the dowel

diagonal double half hitches to make diagonal lines to describe the owl's shape

and square knots to describe the owl's eyes and body feathers

You can learn these beginners knots here on my dedicated knot pages (click image)

Measure and cut first!

  • Owl Body: Measure 8 lengths of cord that are 8ft 4/ 254cm / 100 inches2.Owl Wings:Measure 12 lengths of cord that are 2ft 11 / 35 inches / 86cm
