Kate’s and Rachel’s necklaces

Following on from my hairpin crochet experience I’ve had a little foray into braiding. I tried kumihimo, lucet and now macrame.  I liked the results of all three but couldn’t imagine making anything sizeable out of kumihimo (I’m too impatient) despite the wonderful wooden tool (marudai) they use. I like the lucet – it’s simple and very portable – and will probably experiment with it more. But the most versatile, easiest and most creative seems to be macrame.  These are my first two attempts for friends’ birthdays this weekend.  They were very simple to do and I’m pretty pleased with the results (if not the photos). I want to try more complex braiding with macrame now and it’s on my to do list for when I finish part 1.
