yarn macramé wall hanging

Using yarn is a great way to add color, texture and a focal statement to any room. Combine some macramé and wood beads for trendy wall art piece.
Step 1

Cut the wooden dowel to about 24".

Step 2

Cut two 36" strands of white Alpaca™ yarn and one 36" strand of Carousel yarn. Set them aside.

Step 3

Cut about 24 120" strands of Carousel yarn and 12 120" strands of white Alpaca™ yarn.

Step 4

Attach the strands to the 36" piece of Carousel yarn, set aside in Step 2, using a lark’s head knot.
TIP: To tie a lark’s head knot, fold a strand of yarn in half. Now, lay it perpendicular under the yarn strand, bring the two tails over the wood ring and through the loop. Pull the stands to tighten the knot. Tie the knots the same each time so it looks uniform. A lark’s head knot is easy to loosen and can move if you choose to adjust your art.

Step 5

Tie each end of the 36" yarn piece to each end of the wood dowel. Now, trim and shape the yarn to hang as desired.
TIP: Use a sharp scissors to cut the yarn strands.

Step 6

Thread wood beads onto one of the white 36" yarn strands, set aside in Step 2. Tie to the wood dowel next the where you attached the Carousel strand. Tie it so it hangs just above the yarn strands.

Step 7

Cut two 120" pieces of yarn from each color of cotton yarn. Determine the order of the chevron and attach them towards the center of the wood dowel with a lark’s head knot in that order.
TIP: For the macramé shown, they were attached in the following order: Soft Ecru, Tea Rose, Hot Pink, Beach Glass, Light Blue, Hot Purple, Hot Purple, Light Blue, Beach Glass, Hot Pink, Tea Rose and Soft Ecru. There should be two strands hanging from the dowel with each lark’s head knot. Work them as one.

Step 8

With the Soft Ecru (A) and Tea Rose (B) strands on the left, make a forward overhand knot with A over B. Repeat for a second knot.
TIP: To make a forward overhand knot, take your A strands and fold half of it over the B strands to resemble the number “4”. Then, bend the section of the A strands that is extending past the B strands around the B strands and through the opening of the four formation. Pull tight, sliding the knot up to the top.

Step 9

Repeat Step 8 with the A strands over the Hot Pink (C) strands and again with the A strand over the Beach Glass (D) strands, Light Blue (E) strands and Hot Purple (F) strands. Remember to knot each one twice.
TIP: The A strand will naturally mover across the row to center as you make the forward knots.

Step 10

Now, repeat Steps 8-9 with the A strand on the right side, but this time, make backward overhand knots across the B-F strands, until it moves to the center.
TIP: To make a backward overhand knot, just make a forward overhand knot in reverse.

Step 11

Once you have both A strands in the center, make two backward overhand knots to join the two sides, as well as, make the point of your chevron.

Step 12

Repeat Steps 8-11 with the B strand. Continue this pattern until you reach the desired length.

Step 13

At the end of your chevron knots, Trim the floss so they are clean at the ends.

Step 14
Tie the last 36" strand to the wood dowel to use as a hanger.
TIP: Use a dab of glue in the back to keep all of the yarns tie to each end of the dowel in place.
