- 2 colors cotton threads* - I used black and yellow
- a clip, or piece of tape, pins, or whatever you need to keep the threads still
- your hands
*You need a black thread and 9 yellow ones.
How long do they have to be?
Unfortunately I don't have an exact answer for this. Macramè consists of many knots so I can never know how long my threads should be, but I can tell that my yellow threads were about 50cm long (19.68 inches) and that was about the right size for me.
I cut my black thread double that size, but that's the one I worked with the most so I often had to add new pieces. You can either use an extremely long thread or add new pieces from time to time.
I don't feel comfortable working with a thread that is too long so I prefer to add new ones when the previous one is getting too short.
