I've been working on this micro macrame pattern for quite a while now, trying to get it just right and I think I finally nailed it. This design reminds me of leaves falling from the trees in autumn, so I'm calling it (what else?) Falling Leaves Micro Macrame Bracelet.
I can imagine this bracelet done in every combination of earthy browns, olive greens, rusty oranges and reds, and pops of Aspen yellow. You know me, though - I tried to use green and orange and it just didn't feel right. So here you have, Autumn ala Sherri Stokey :)
The pattern is a fun one. I used a different way of adding cords than my "usual" (whatever that is!) and a method of gathering and dropping cords to increase and decrease the width of the knotting and form the leaf shape. The leaves even cup just a little, which I really like.
For the class, I made the version you see above with two solid colors of leaves alternating with striped leaves. From there it's easy to back down into just the two solid colors alternating:
Or a single solid color:
I cover how to make both of those variations in the class also, so you'll have loads of options. I do show how to tie the knots in the class, but some macrame experience would definitely be preferable. The class has 6 videos and over 60 still photos with written instructions as well as narration. Once you purchase the class, you have unlimited access to it, so you can watch it as many times as you like, and you can pause and replay anything you like. You can also print the handout, which is made up of screenshots of the entire class.
You will find this class, along with my other online classes, at CraftArtEdu.com. I know I've said it before, but I haven't chanced my mind - the folks at CraftArtEdu.com are the best.
