Choosing the Right Hues

When it comes to choosing the right color of yarn for your macramé wall art, consider the theme and ambiance of your room. Are you aiming for a vibrant and bold statement piece that stands out and adds a lively pop of color to your space? In that case, Symfonie Yarns' variegated shades like Party Lights can bring a dynamic element to your wall hanging. On the other hand, if you prefer a more subdued and harmonious look, opting for muted tones that blend seamlessly with the overall vibe of the room could be the key. Imagine the splendid shade of Viva’s Seafoam bringing the entire room together with its subtle shade. Just make sure that your masterpiece complements the existing decor in a way that feels both intentional and aesthetically pleasing.

Hoop Wall Hanging with Lark's Knots:

First off, gather your materials: a 12-inch gold metal ring, a trusty pair of scissors, and your favorite shades of Symfonie Yarns; grab two contrasting colors like Dried Chiles and Sunset. Make sure one shade is darker than the other, or if you don’t wanna change colors, the best option is to go for a variegated shade. Symfonie Yarns’ eye-catching hand-dyed variegated tones will spice up the vibe of your space with their visual splendor!

  1. Begin by positioning your yarn strand about half an inch above the hoop. Bend it and let the ends hang down to your desired length.
  2. Use the first strand as a guide to measure out the remaining 16 strands you'll be working with. It’s up to you, how big you want it to be.
  3. Take each strand, fold it in half to create a loop, and secure it behind the ring. Pull the loose ends in front of the ring and through the loop, tightening the knot.
  4. Now, with half of your strands (your first color), create diagonal knots, pulling each individual strand down to the bottom of the ring. Knot each strand, ensuring a taut diagonal line. Let the loose ends hang down for that stylish fringe. Repeat on one side.
  5. For the other half of the strands, use your second color. Weave each strand under the opposite strand, creating a 'V' shape in the middle of the hoop. Continue this pattern until you reach the end of the hoop.
  6. Time for a haircut! Cut 18 strands at a length that matches your previous strands. Starting from the outside, make loop knots, alternating with the knots from step 3. Finish with one on the outside of the other end.
  7. To give your fringe a fuller look, carefully pull apart the strands.
  8. Attach a hanging string at the top, and voila! Your macramé masterpiece is ready to grace your wall.
