The directions were clear and easy to understand, the materials are excellent quality, and I have a piece that I’m proud of that I finished just in time for Memorial Day.
I really like this macrame kit. I wish I had allowed maybe 1 ft more with the red and white cords to make it longer.
I thoroughly enjoyed making this flag! I only give it four stars because I feel like there is a mistake in the instructions. On step 16, each red and white cord should measure 9 feet not 8 feet because those six stripes wind up being about 6 inches shorter than the other seven making it not possible to do the very bottom row of the diagonal clove stitches.
Glad you (mostly) liked your kit. It is not actually a mistake. Variations in knotting - especially the densely knotted blue field - can make the project seem longer on the left. But, there should be sufficient length to make Clove Hitch 'waves' and still trim off the bottoms to be even across the project. It's going to be a little different for every maker!
This was super fun to make! The only change I made was to tie the stripes together. I used 4lb fishing line and made 2 or 3 knots to attach each stripe to the next. So beautiful!
I was pleasantly surprised as to how quickly I received my order. Although I have not yet started to work on it, everything looks top quality. Will order from this supplier again.
I love this wall hanging It was easy to follow instructions. I am a novice & feel it came out nice.
I am a novice. This was easy to follow & came out beautiful. I received many compliments on it.
I am currently working on this project. It was difficult to start since the wood piece is curved and bumpy. I've learned to pick up dowel rods for future projects.
Note from Solid Oak: These kits include a natural wood branch that has been kiln dried. Every one is different, and usually it is a nice touch over a plain hardware store dowel. We encourage anyone with ANY problem with one of our kits - including a hanging rod that is too irregular for your liking - to get in touch by email for a replacement. [****]
