(( Projects )) Macrame Pouch Tutorial

http://nimuae.deviantart.com/art/Pouch-Tutorial-Part-I-Bottom-314899434 (to view this you need a deviantArt account)

Hello People! :)

This is a larger tutorial about how to knot a macramee pouch...

For this version you need 98 double strings (up to 14 colours - if you want to, but you could also use only 2 - I used 11, some of them twice, some 3 times) - each as long as possible (about 150 cm, so, if folded, each string is around 75cm) - colours are your choice.
But don't be afraid, you start with 7 strings only and the other strings will be inserted later.
At the end of this tutorial I added a picture that shows the string order!

For to get a better view of the pictures click on "full view" below and use the magnifier of your browser, or save them and open them with some graphic software... also on deviantART you'll have to option to magnify the image if you click on it
