Why we love macrame

You can use macrame to create gorgeous crafts out of string and cord without the use of knitting or sewing - instead, you tie many different kinds of knots to create your art.

Cotton macrame cord is the most common variety of macrame string you'll find, although natural materials such as linen and jute and man-made materials like nylon are also popular.
