lawnchairs

rjf | Posted in General Discussion on

I just got a belated birthday present: 2 skeins of 6mm macrame cord and a book of directions to recover(?) reseat(?) resomething an aluminum lawnchair.  The book (pamphlet, actually) is from Design Originals, author Karen Staub.  I have another set of directions from Pepperell, if I can find it.  Has anyone tried this?  Have you got a recommendation for directions?    The colors are great and I don’t want to mess it up.      rjf

    Are you talking about netting, in which you make square grid with a knot at each corner of each square?

      It's like a long loop from the front of the seat under the back of the seat where it folds and up the back and over the top where you hold it with size N crochet hook until the next loop comes up.  Then the loops on the top are crocheted.  After all those loops are done, you go back and weave loops through sideways, continuing the loop and crochet business.  Does that make sense to you?  I hope I've remembered the basic idea accurately.     

      I agree with your "unfocused" description.....at least the way you interpreted it towards the end.  They were giving us techniques that we could use for whatever purpose we could imagine.  Not just a one shot affair.      rjf

    I have no personal experience, but have seen them done.
    They're wonderful.

          That's what I had in mind but from bottom to top rather than vice versa.  But it was a very good explanation, much easier to understand than the directions I saw before and it is a source for materials.  I'll let you know when I get it done.     rjf
