How to make suspended chair hammock in macrame technique

Suspended chair hammock in macrame technique. 

To work required:
– Gymnastic hoop – steel D 90 cm (no longer found, and out of the tube until it has learned to weld) … cost 180-280 rubles;
– Gymnastic ring (photo below), the cost of the Rings 2 – 290 p .;
– Polyester cord D 4,5 -5 mm 800-900 meters;
– Hook number 8-9;
– Scissors, tape measure ….
and a little patience

Cord braided polyester-D 4,5 mm.
For a long time looking for a suitable cord, chose to knit not only because of the price of 1m. = 1p.
A big plus polyester cord that chair out of it will feel just fine on the street … this chair is not afraid of no rain or snow. If weaves for myself and for the closed veranda or rooms, it is advisable to purchase a 16-strand braided cord …. and can be made from natural fibers … the issue price of 1m. – 5 p. (((
Disadvantages cord that if fails to catch the thread at the end of the cord, it will be dissolved, but if a little cauterize the region, it does not dissolve and oplavitsya

gymnastic rings D 17 cm, thickness of 2-2.5 cm, 

To start, decide what seat you like best.
Var. 1 Simple napkin, conceived and remarkably described Tata35. Used aerial loops and loops with nakida. The part where the binding will go under tighter ass. Finished napkin, if put in the center of the hoop will not reach to the edges of 10cm

Twine from napkins are not cut off, and tie it to the hoop. I started to tie it with a tight hand wipes. In the photo above where is the hook.

During sewing, try to stretch the cloth. For the first time in my napkin it was larger, but it is bad because when the chair is ready under the weight of sedentary napkin still stretches, and the chair will be hard to get up, and the airbag will gather all in a heap.

Napkin (bottom) can be woven and easier, here and twine will take less. The knitting is used air loop and a column with nakida.

1 series of 10 aircraft,
2 number of columns with nakida 1 Air, etc.
Column number 3 with 2 nakida air, etc.
Row 4 Column 5 nakida with air, etc.
then add on de air loops in each row.
Do not forget to binding depends on the density of knitting, it took me 8 rows on a napkin. you may be more or less, I wove 5 chairs and they are all different.
So you can feel free to make your change !!!
(I just made some changes in its sole discretion)
On this seat (cloth + tying it to the hoop) out about 80 meters of cable …. it was important for me, because my packs of 80 m.

Var. 2 seat cushion (also peeked at Tata 35)
On this seat goes to 120 meters, which is not very convenient if the packing cord of 80-100 meters, have to thread to bind …. but that should not scare you in this case, if this option is like ….. I contacted durable cord assembly and seat withstand load.

Var. 3 my creation – “network”. On it goes 320 meters, but it is also based on a fringe, so that there is not much
– Inconvenient to tie back, because thread too close;
– Turned out very strained … but the taste and color …. someone like hard seat

I decided on the fringe of threads to spare .. but what a result! On the fringe of this option it takes about 250 meters.

Rear view of a simplified version of …

Finally, a fourth embodiment of the seat – “Network”
option coined for those who do not know how to crochet and will be used for the first time in MK
as the seat of the former does not always followed parallel threads, but I think that in a couple of seats received exactly
in general, I have it all arranged:
-nitok lasted approximately 80 meters (sparingly)
– A measure of slack in the seat (I and my girls love mildly)
– Well, with wicker headboard is best combined wicker seat (although my daughters like fishnet-knit sidushki)
Choose your option and braid-knit seat (about the “net” all describe in detail “)

On a seat cut into:
– 8 meters of yarn 6
– 4 strands at 5.50 m
– 4 strands at 4.50 m
– Yarn 2 to 4 meters
Bind 8 yarns in pairs, the distance between them is about 6 cm.

do four flat knot to the thread not broke …. I think that it was possible to cross them, to let the left to the right and vice versa …. experiment the next time 

left and right tie remaining threads (2 to 5.50. 4.50 and 2 to 1 to 4 m) weave seat

Seat ready …. color trying to show the direction of the filaments. blue thread bind to the hoop and then turn ……. Here so. The seat I got soft enough (I’m drowning in it), who does not like to fall, I advise you to pull the thread tightly …

If the seat is selected and woven, it is time to start substantive work! Cut the strands 20 to 10 meters. the middle of each filament bundle celebrate …

and only two threads, with four sides …. I reel edge on the rest of the skin, after the third chair, decided not to wind the ends into knots because These dangling nodes eternally confused, and when the ends are free, always slippery thread unraveled itself, without much effort, in spite of the length of 5 m. The two strands twisted ends have edges and perform 12 flat units

side ends of the strands tying knot, dissolve the nodules

We turn the work and perform another 15 flat units

just 27-30 knots … can be flat and less …. * I have this time got a long loop

transfer the workpiece to a carabiner (you can just hang on the belt, the belt of his robe …)
carabiner suitable for work …. the issue price of 35 rubles continue to work two extreme strands (they are reserved in advance
criss-crossing them all 38 “tails” Run flat 3-4 knot …. and not to lose 4 to the end windings
* Possible to be sure to change the thread When a thread back … and do not be afraid of long strands … they do not get confused …. but to whom it is convenient … decide for yourself

two end tie a knot in the thread as shown in the photo (thread split into two parts)

We begin to weave the upper part of the chair “bell”:
– Turn to the work side
– Find the next two cord wound on the ends (they will be the first node to the center)
– Weave flat knot
– The first row at a distance of 3-4 cm from the loop
weave another 4 node and look for the remaining two cords wound at the ends … again have the thread in the middle of a flat unit

the first row of the 10-minute units ready – second row from the first at a distance of 4-4.5 cm – the third row from the second at a distance of 5-5.5 cm

We begin to tie the top of the ring
* I do not ring wrapped, several seats and laced winding hoop, ring … and for me was the double work and waste of thread because I napletayu thread on the fringe is very tight … and do believe that the fringe thread regret is not necessary, because the It is seen only fringe and back, and the seat you will be inundated with a pillow or a large “quilt” 🙂

with coiled ends nodes must be exactly opposite each other

cut into the front sling another 8 threads for 6 meters and impose them on the ring, that’s such a node

tighten knot tighter and move firmly pressed to the already imposed cords, the center bind four threads at the edges of two

We begin to weave the two lines, perform 8 flat units divide them by sex

perform three rows (4-node 3-node 4 node) * in this embodiment, the chair straps are wide, both in the Brazilian chairs, but I often do, and have (3-node 2-node 3uzla) seat well kept

back down to the width of four fingers and then weave three rows repeat pattern 10-11 times

sling length I turned 86 cm., after the tie seat and seat myself in it sidushka fall by 15-20 centimeters !!!
(But this is true of my polyester threads that stretch) * I do not advise to do the lines are too long if you’re going to shoot it, and hang up …. if it will hang permanently, then calculate the length of his own

cut into 16 strands at 9 meters and add them to the left and right of the sling (rear between the already-bound impose 4, in other space on 2 threads)

Two threads with windings, which will be the back edge I need to move to the left to the right sling ….
* If you have pre-braid the ring then you will not need to weave the thread on the side in order to close the black ring, and in this case, you simply place the edge of the thread on the sides …
I weave in different ways, so that is another option has the right to life

edge of the thread from both sides moved for slings

filled the remaining gaps … associated with a number of flat units … I got 13 knots
* Behind the thread woven into four
for ease of weaving back tethering lines to the finished seat …
* I settled seat “tails” forward

in addition to the sling tied to a rope loop on gymnastic rings, in order to firmly secure the wrap-seat

straps secured at the base to a distance of approximately 77-80 cm apart
tying hoop proceed to creativity – weaving back 🙂
* Hoop rests on the front straps on the sides at the edge threads 4 and back on the ropes on the gymnastic rings … its the more the better … back thread will lie flat
* Distance between the upper and lower rings:
– In front of the sling length
-szadi shorter by about 5-10 cm

side view … * after I sit down in a chair, upper ring me tilts forward … and do anything about it … I can not probably need to top “skirt” to do shorter front 

side view … to expand the back side are starting to tie the thread …
this gradually cut into 18-20 strands:
4 threads – at 7.50 m
4 threads – 7 m
4 thread – 6,50 m by
4 threads – 6 m
4 threads – 5 m
* I have before cutting the thread 4 measures the length of the side strands from the place where I will bind (double cut off long)

periodically measure the distance with a tape measure on the sides of the back … align drawing, if required

Figure can come up with yourself, I have every seat individually … so even more interesting

on the edge of the picture at the bottom of miss a couple of rows of flat units and fix a number of graphic rep sites when ready to tie it back to the ring starting from the middle …. and uniformly pulling symmetrically centered tethering side thread

after back tied yarn to fill the gaps on the hoop tightly imposing yarn fringe:
– Front thread 160 cm
– Behind the thread on the 180 cm

thread impose very tight, sliding them uniformly, and aligning filaments seat … the distance between the edges of the back and the straps should be the same ….
* Long strands back and straps cut off the rest of the evening with a skirt … long stretches binds to the hoop, short (in the case of deficiency) can “weld” heating lighter edges and fast gluing both ends … practice on scraps and place spikes Boden unnoticed
* Welded thread used only in fringe on which there is no load … if the power cord is sufficient that 200 meters will be spent on the fringe ….

picture begin to perform again from the middle of the back ….
* I was advised at the first forum weave Breeden, in order to seat the thread load testing have not gone away … very good advice … it is a pity that I had already been woven “skirt” … but I have strengthened flat nodes located immediately under the hoop
* Crocheted in embodiments this is not necessary, since seat snaps to the hoop and yarn fringe is not there, but one way … knitted sidushki easiest then complement strands of fringe

the transition from the back to the buttocks on the front ….. recount thread … they must be a multiple of 8-because front and sides of my flat units of 8-strands
dopletaem “skirt”, after finishing her Brides …..

clipped thread …. HERE AND READY NEW CHAIR!
