I like this craft, but when I followed the measurements in the instructions the strings were not long enough. So, I started over, dividing the amount of string I had remaining into the number of strings I needed. I think if I had done this at the beginning it would have worked out better. As it was I barely had enough and it looks a little rough.
Sorry to learn you were not 100% happy. This is not a comment we have seen before, that the measurements given were too short. Certainly, variations in knot tightness can affect the length of rope needed. Glad you managed a workaround!
I broke both wrists in December, so instead of severe pain-inducing traditional physical therapy, my doctor gave his okay to complete small macrame projects. I bought the Celtic braid design to make for my son’s 31st birthday, as he loves his Irish/Celtic heritage. It was easy to complete (probably helped that I learned some basics over 40 years ago) & turned out quite nicely. My son was proud of it & promptly hung it up on his wall in his apartment!
That is great! Glad you are on the mend, and are able to be creative with your rehab!!!!
Made one for my daughter who lives in Ireland, and I liked it so much I made one for myself! Added some green adventuring beads.
I ordered this kit as it said beginners. I think this was more for advanced people or I'm just a slow learner. Overall it turned out good. I'm proud of it.
Quality materials, easy to read and follow directions. Finished product turned out great....made a nice gift for my Irish friend!
love this one great fun and pretty easy
The knots could of been described better for beginners.
