This is macramé for a new generation, though, and includes modern twists like coasters and a customizable hanging shelf. Includes 10 elegant designs, step-by-step instructions, an introduction on knot tying techniques, and all the supplies needed to create a mini plant hanger and a mini wall hanging.

Complete with all the materials you need to make two projects–a mini plant hanger and a mini wall hanging–this fabulous kit also features an illustrated book with instructions for ten sophisticated projects. A knotting tutorial guides you through classic macrame knots to teach you the basics so you can move on to making your own unique designs.
