Macrame UK-United Knots beginners macrame mandala

This post has been sponsored by the wonderful Robyn from Macrame UK-United Knots, I usually get my macrame cord from Robyn so I am delighted to be doing this tutorial-I have also made a video showing the steps to make it easy to DIY.

The supplies you need are:

Macrame UK raw ecru single ply cord HERE
Macrame UK 4 inch metal rings HERE

The knots you use are:

Larks head HERE
Square knot HERE
Double half hitch HERE

This is such a sweet little mandala and a great beginners project-it makes a great wall decor piece but would also look lovely as a candle surround for a centre piece or if you could back it with a mirror that would look amazing.

Tag me on Instagram if you make one @aideenfallon,

Rico PomPon yarn review and tips

Hey guys I have another mini review today and its on Rico PomPon yarn AVAILABLE HERE (Pssst if you enter AIDEEN FALLON at checkout-referred by a friend? section you will get 15% off your order and so will I).

The little pompons are like squishy marshmallows

I chose Rico pompon in silver and its a beautiful unisex colour perfect for making a baby blanket as a gift. The tricky part for me was the casting on/off but with lots of research online and trying out different methods I found what worked best for me which I share in my video below.

From my Instagram @aideenfallon

Once you get going with knitting in the yarn it is very easy to do and the pom poms just fall into place. I made a blanket and it is the cutest, cosy, snuggly blanket ever!!

Here is the video of what I found that worked best for me:
