all you need to start learning this craft 

Unless you are making a large piece of macrame, you don't really need much to start macrame: a wooden dowel or ring to hang the strings for the macrame, a measuring tape, sharp scissors and masking tape to fix the macrame on a flat surface while you are working.

I wrote a blog post THE BEST 3 MACRAME TOOLS and in there you read about the tools I recommend to invest if you have fall in love with macrame. Discover here.

Next, you need to purchase the material. You can find the list of my recommended suppliers here. Where possible choose 100% recycled cotton strings.

There are 3 main type of MACRAME STRING:
> 3-ply- is perfect for beginners and it's very versatile.
> braided- is perfect for beginners and it doesn’t unravel.
> single twist- is very soft and I usually recommend it for macrame makers that have some experience or for smaller macrame projects like the feather here.

Next, you want to practice the basic macrame knots, you can start practicing your knots by downloading "The Macrame Knots Guide" here and then trying these popular free macrame tutorials here.

Most of all have fun and let your creativity guide you!
