Now that we’re spending more time at home, it has become an important place in our lives. This last year, we have discovered new ways to learn, work and enjoy our spare time. In our search for wellbeing, we are more and more interested in interior design to create personal and welcoming spaces. We have certainly placed our trust in traditional tasks such as knitting, crochet, or sewing to customize our living space. Because creative decorative pieces spark joy and calmness in any environment. We hope that you will continue to fill “your own island” with joy! For this reason, we are launching a free online macramé course on YouTube to learn the textile technique featured in trendsetting magazines. Lucía @knittingtheskyline will show you how to create the 5 decoration projects in the Hawaii Mood collection with your own hands and some balls of Macramé Cord.
Hawaii Mood Collection
“The macramé Hawaii Mood Collection aims to help you decorate your home with useful projects with a simple, clean design. As well as learning with each of the designs with Hawaiian names, you will bring a modern and special touch to your home”. Lucía, @knittingtheskyline. Travel to that Pacific island with Hawaii Mood without leaving home, with the free macramé classes available on our YouTube channel. These are the decorative projects you will make with your own hands following the full videos and patterns from the free online macramé course. Take note of the material you will need to make them!
1. Ohana Trivets
Materials: You will only need 1 ball of Macramé Cord color 105 to make 2 macramé trivets with fringe. “Ohana means ‘family’ in Hawaiian. These trivets have been created to enjoy family time around the table, making it fun and welcoming. They are perfect as an introduction to macramé”.
2. Nalu Lamp
Materials: Prepare 2 balls of Macramé Cord color 100 and one 30.5-cm wooden hoop to illuminate your bedroom with a beautiful round macramé lamp with fringe. “This lamp seems to draw foamy waves in its circles, this is why it is called nalu in Hawaiian. This lamp will bring a boho look to any room in your home, making it a unique and original space”.
3. ‘Olu’olu Cushion
Materials: Turn 1 ball of Macramé Cord color 114 into a 50 cm x 50 cm cushion cover to add comfort to your favorite resting spot. “‘Olu ‘olu means comfort in Hawaiian and is there anything more comfortable than a beautiful cushion! With a design combining motifs and bobbles, which inspire peace and quiet. Without a doubt, the perfect welcoming touch for your lounge”.
4. ‘Ike Shelf
Materials: You only need 2 balls of Macramé Cord color 119, a plank of wood measuring 60 cm x 25 cm and a 60-cm wooden baton to create a spectacular macramé floating shelf. “They say you can never know too much, but that’s not the case of our overgrowing pile of books. For this reason, here is the ‘Ike shelf you can create from this collection, meaning ‘knowledge’ in Hawaiian. Hang up a wooden and macramé shelf and place your favorite books, decorations, plants… to enjoy your reading nook”.
5. Hiamoe Headboard
Materials: Prepare a 170-cm baton (you can use a white curtain rod), 3 balls of Macramé Cord color 100 and 1 ball of Macramé Cord in each of the following colors: 113 and 118. “The Hiamoe headboard, which means ‘sleep’ in Hawaiian, is perfect for wishing you sweet dreams every night and for relaxing during the day. Transform your bedroom with a spectacular macramé headboard with wavy lines and fluffy textures”.
Get your home creative space ready!
As well as the materials stated for each project, you also need: scissors, tape measure and a metal comb or brush. You can find many of these accessories in wool stores or notions stores. Of course, you can make the course projects in the Macramé Cord colors that best suit your decor. Remember to get your home creative space ready! To easily do macramé, you need some sort of hanging support to comfortably make knots with long cords. An easel, a bar with hooks, a wall coat rack, a sawhorse or movable clothes rack… Use your imagination to put together your macramé workshop at home!
