Macrame kits are underrated. No seriously. Macrame is the unsung hero of the knitting world and it deserves some respect. Macrame kits are often overlooked for their fancier relatives like cross stitch and punch needle when it comes to fun things to do at home. But macrame is a style of knitting that’s completely in a league of its own, predominantly because it isn’t even “technically” knitting.
Using a series of intricate knots and ties, you can learn macrame without ever having to pick up a needle, making a macrame diy kit perfect for little ones, sailors looking to transfer their skills to a more artistic outlet, or really anyone looking to expand their creative horizons!
