Crochet ‘macrame’ footstool pattern for Knitcraft

Crochet ‘macrame’ footstool pattern for Knitcraft





If there’s one thing I love, it’s trying to make crochet look like something else - knitting, weaving, macrame..! I don’t know why, partly it’s because I love texture and unusual stitches, and partly because I love the challenge! So when Knitcraft, the yarn arm of crafty superstore Hobbycraft, asked me to create a crochet footstool that looked like macrame, I jumped at the chance.

Their new yarn, Return of the Mac, is a lovely cotton cord ideal for macrame, but also well suited to more hardwearing and structural crochet items (think rugs, stools, wallhangings). I also used a 9mm hook to make this, so it works up really quickly!



(I was paid to create this pattern but not to promote it as it’s being published under the Knitcraft label, rather than my own, I’m just keen to share the pictures I took and a bit more about my design process! ☺️)

You can find a digital copy of the pattern here on the Hobbycraft website.

I’d love to know what you think of the pattern, and do let me know if you make it by tagging me as @lottieandalbert and #lottieandalbert on Instagram
