Freebie Friday: Macrame Nordic Snowflake Coasters and Striped Hotpad

Protect Thy… Tabletops! During this particularly social time for many people, when holiday parties are simply par for the course, whether you’re throwing a cocktail or dinner party or attending one or all of the above, we have a FREE PROJECT DOWNLOAD for the ultimate handmade gift to give yourself or to the host(ess): Stylish, functional, Nordic snowflake coasters and a striped kitchen hotpad–made by using the craft of knotting, also known as macrame.

Nordic Coaster Striped Hotpad

These projects are from Macrame Pattern Book by Marchen Art Studio, a creative group that supervises Marchen-Art Company in Japan, which designs leather and hemp cords accessory parts, and other craft items. This dream of a book (especially for a knotter like myself who finds the repetition cathartic) is an outstanding resource for both new and experienced knotters and includes over 70 knots and small repeat patterns plus 33 projects–ranging from simple jewelry pieces and accessories to more complicated projects such as net bags and ornate baskets.

So this holiday party season: To Knot or Knot to Knot? That… beloved Crafters, is the question!

    Hi, I love your Macrame Pattern Book – book!
    You have a pattern that I was hoping to get a bit more information on as the instructions don’t quite make sense to me. I am very new at this type of thing!!
    Was wondering if you had a video or more instructions to make the 3-lobed leaf in the book.

    Love that leaf!!
