From knotting a simple spiral bracelet to creating a boho wall hanging—macrame has never been easier or more stylish.

In this book, Japanese macrame and handicraft guru Harumi Kageyama presents illustrated step-by-step lessons that introduce you to 28 different knots and 30 innovative projects, including ornamental, wearable, and useful items such as:
  • Reusable shopping bags that look chic and cut down on waste
  • Knotted handbags and pouches that add a boho touch to any outfit
  • An ornamental feather to embellish just about anything
  • Spiral bracelets that call back to everyone's favorite friendship bracelets
  • Covers to transform glass jars into unique decorative objects for events or home decor
  • And more!

While this book offers practical instructions and opportunities to practice what you've learned, it also serves as a resource for inspiration. Once you get the hang of the basics, your imagination and creativity will take over.
