Bernat Macrame Cording has just been released in June 2021. 10 new patterns with 12 beginner tutorials. Macrame is trending.

This cord is the real deal. This isn’t yarn pretending to be macrame cording but is actual cording itself.

In farmer’s markets, we are seeing more younger people being creative with macrame. Here in Nova Scotia, with people making art with netting and trending home decor, macrame doesn’t need to be complex to be awesome.

Yes, we will have some mind-blowing patterns below that may have you say, UMM no! But there are options so you can go from beginner to intermediate levels with patience. It’s nice to have options. The patterns include diagrams of cord wrapping that are really clean and crisp. 

Despite my oozy sarcasm in the descriptions, I really do like macrame but it does scare me a bit because it’s something I don’t do often. Need to practice. Daniel loves macrame.


Technical Details

It’s 8.8 oz / 250 g and 44 yards/ 40 metres. It’s level #6 super bulky in sizing. Suggested knitting needles are US 13 / 9 mm or using crochet hook of N/P/15 / 10 mm. Made of mixed fibres and recycled cotton with polyester, viscose and acrylic.

When you feel the ball, it feels really solid and got weight to it. It’s truly a cord. Love it.
