Macrame & Crochet Fashion S/S 2011

I remember as a kid creating macrame plant holders while attending summer school. My poor mother had so many of these hanging on her patio and in her windows as my sister and I continued to weave macrame hangings for any potted plant we could find. Here is a much more sophisticated interpretation of the macrame trend for spring/summer 2011. It includes long fringe, tassels, nautical-inspired twists of rope and even the look of your grandmother's Afghan.

Only a small population around the world still practice macrame. Most of these people are older and mature, and may have learned macrame during its heyday in the seventies.Now the art of knotting may be coming back because of the macrame jewelry that has been making the rounds in fashion. The same decorative macrame is seen in fashionable dresses, handbags, hats and belts inMacrame
