Naxos Garland Tutorial
At Modern Macramé, we often find ourselves dreaming of far-off lands and distant, sandy shores. It was in this flight of fancy that we dreamed up the Naxos Garland. Named for our favorite Greek island, this verdant swag employs a fun yet simple braiding technique that is ever-so satisfying to knot up when you get the hang of it.
Punctuated by two brass triangle beads, we picture this piece strung across the bar at a party for some added Dionysian flair, festively festooning the banister at a holiday gathering or simply draped above the headboard of your bed to spruce up your intimate interior space. However you see fit, we are sure you will find the perfect place for this versatile bit of bunting.
