Make-ramé™ Kit - Old Glory

  • Like all of our kits, this is a Solid Oak original. designed right here in Rhode Island, USA. American pride has many levels, but one constant symbol of our freedom and the diverse richness of our 50 states is our national flag. This unique macramé kit design lets you knot your own flag hanging. It's large, measuring approximately 14 in. W x 32 in. H (36 cm W x 81 cm H). The flag uses the same high-quality cotton cord as used in our other Make-ramé kits. Each flag color - deep red, natural unbleached, and rich navy blue - comes wound neatly on a spool for tangle-free measuring.

    A few people have wondered if this flag design is hanging correctly, with the blue field at the top left. We assure you, this is correct. According to the United States government's documents on flag etiquette, the blue field is at top left for both horizontal and vertical display.

    Solid Oak's Make-ramé™ DIY home décor is a retro art form with modern style. A few simple types of knots are used to create this amazing piece of wall art that will last for years. Create it by yourself to decompress or have a macramé party with family and friends!

    This kit includes:
    - One 54.5 yd. (50 m) spool each color: deep red, natural white, and navy blue 2mm thick macramé cord
    - One length of natural color thick 4 mm cord for the tasseled hanger
    - Natural wood branch hanging rod
    - 50 natural wood beads - one to represent each star
    - Illustrated instructions with details for each kind of knot used, as well as walking you through the steps to create a beautiful flag to display

    All you need for tools will be scissors, a measuring stick, household tape, and a little bit of glue.

    The knots are truly simple, but a real newbie at macramé might be more comfortable starting with one of our smaller kits.

    Time needed to create: 8-10 Hours
    Finished size = about 14 in. x 32 in. (36 cm x 81 cm)

Branch used as dowel rod not long enough

The deficient rod doesn't allow the macrame to lie flat. It bunches up and makes the piece look uneven. I thought of removing included branch/stick and replacing with a longer rod. However, my larks head knots were made to accommodate the branch, which had slight natural imperfections. Therefore, removing branch and replacing with a dowel would result in uneven knots at the top. Easier to start over on a longer rod.

We work tightly when attaching cords to the stick and making those first Clove Hitches. When the cords are smooshed close together this way, the supplied branch is long enough. For anyone who prefers a less densely knotted macrame style, a longer branch wouldn't hurt.

macramé flag

I've looked at the kit, I love it, beautiful colors . As of right now it's hard to find time to make it. I use to Macramé a number of years ago, so can't wait to make it.

Looks amazing!

I love this macrame flag! I did have to adjust the design. Due to the 8 foot section being too short, I had to omit the last row of waves on the whole flag. If I do another one, I will make the 8 foot cords 10 feet long instead. Still looks amazing though!

The flag design will be a bit different in proportion for each person. There should be enough cord to make the 'waves' generally as pictured, but we also see this part as a bit more freestyle. The distances between 'waves' can be varied to taste. ;-)

I haven't done macrame in decades, but the instructions for the flag are easy to follow, very specific, and the final product looks exactly like it is supposed to look.

Fun fun project

I just finished my third flag and absolutely love them. If you have macramed before, you will find this to be an easy rewarding project. The instructions are pretty clear and the knot illustrations are well done. One of the most challenging part of macrame is determining length of cord so you are efficient and not wasteful. That is my primary reason for buying kits, because it takes the guess work out of the measuring process. I found step 13, 14 and 15 to be alittle challenging on the instructions. Keep in mind you are only knotting with “blue” cord and it will make a little more sense. i have two more of these kits and plan to give them as gifts when completed. Great job solid oak! Love your products! Also I noticed some comments about stringing the beads…..just put a small piece of scotch tape on the end of the strands that you are going to use beads in. That way they slide right on, and you can remove the tape later.

This was so easy!

This was so easy to put together. The directions are clear and I have one suggestion for the writers: Please let everyone know that a hitch knot is done twice with each rope, that is not clear, but a true hitch knot is that way. I had so much fun, I made one for each of my sister too!

Love Old Glory

Love the look of this hanging, however, I found the directions lacking a bit. The first two rows of the blue field would not come out looking right no matter what I tried and I tried four times. I haven't given up on the project yet. If someone could offer a little clearer instruction on that portion it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

We are always willing to try to help when someone gets stuck or confused on directions. If you would like to email a picture of where you are having trouble,, I will try to clarify! Send to info@solidoakinc.com

Good, some issues

The instructions are a bit hazy in places. I am currently making this and after half way through the blue section realized I should have adjusted the initial first strand differently. I will have to splice in a piece or will run out of cord yet have an extra 7 feet on the other side. Telling me to be sure I get the bead on the right cord .... without saying what that was caused me to have done trial and error. I am still working on the blue so can't respond regarding the rest. If I did a second one there are changes I would know/make.

Sorry you were confounded by those steps! The first two rows should be tied on the same Base Cord. Start at the left, do all the clove hitches across... then bend that Base Cord back to the left and tie the second row, right to left. We try to make clear instructions, with the knot diagrams and little notes. We pay attention to every comment, so thank you for letting us know this part needs to be clarified in your experience! Note to you and everyone: if you encounter questions in making up a SOlid Oak kit, please contact us by email: info@solidoakinc.com, and we will do our best to clarify and help!
