When i first time saw those beautiful Brazilian sisal hanging chairs I've realized - i have to make the same for my backyard. They look "WOW"! I just wondering why this chairs SO popular in Europe and they don't sell them in the USA. Maybe later?
I wish i had this pattern long time ago before I've spoiled kilometers of cord knotting the chair, hundreds dollars trying different variants of metal rings and SO much time. I've even purchased several PDF patterns of different kinds of hanging chairs, but I was greatly disappointed found in them such a words : "... you need to custom order 30'' metal rings at your local steel fabricator..." Can you imagine the price for this custom order? So, I've found how to make this ring yourself for 10 dollars. And I would like to share this "secret" with you in my PDF Pattern.
I have tried different materials, different types of knots but the most important achievement - i have found the best angle of seating toward the ground. It's very important! When you seat in the hanging chair like "Neptune's Throne" (pretty popular pattern, I've purchased and tried to make) you start to feel uncomfortable in 5 minutes. I've found that all those models of chairs when the seating parallel to the ground - uncomfortable. I've realized that i need a full back support if I want to spent a lot of time in this chair. I did a lot of attempts to find this perfect angle to allow you to feel like you are seating on the cloud. Maybe it was the most difficult part of the process. I'm making this chairs to order for 3 years and didn't heard any complain - just compliments. This chair is really great! Try it.
This Pattern includes: 1. List of materials (easy found in any craft and hardware stores) 2. Macrame project. 3. Instructions how to make a large metal ring yourself. 4. Pattern how to sew pillows. 5. More than 50 pages of detailed description!
As English is my second language, I've made a huge amount of pictures on each single step i made. In case to be clear for you if something not understandable from the text.
Please, share with me pictures of your ready chair. I'll appreciate it. And i promise to send you the pattern with the ideas what to do with the leftovers of the cord.
Thank you for stopping by in my shop. And Happy Knotting!
