Home & Crafts Macrame Kit
This fabulous kit comes with 4 designs to choose from – and enough cord to make any 2 items from the included booklet.
Diane Pursley says
What I need is a gauge to show me how many mm thick the different cords are. Some of mine do not have wrappers. What about a piece of cardboard with different size labeled holes in it from small to large that I can drop my cords into.
Sue Traynor says
Hi Diane, Thanks for your comment about measuring macrame cord thicknesses. That’s a good idea! Or a simple cheap knitting needle gauge that has holes and millimeters already marked out. There are some very cheap, but cute ones if you search “knitting gauge” on Etsy. Although it’s going to be a little tricky to get a precise measurement given the nature of macrame cord, either should hopefully give you a close enough proximity to what you should choose to use for your project.
