Hanging Macrame Chair

According to my WordPress Stats, someone is looking for a pattern on a macrame hanging chair. If you read my post from December 31, 2011, And It Begins… you will know that I did find the pattern for the chair I planned on making 30 years ago.

two 26″ wrought iron rings make up this macrame hanging chair

It took quite a while to find it originally because I did a search using the words hanging chair, hanging macrame chair, but came up with nothing. Then I found in eBay the book that I used to have that has a picture of a woman sitting in the chair, wearing a bikini, next to other objects that you can making from this booklet. And there it was; they called it the Bird Cage, who would guess that.

Today I re-visited the site where the free pattern was and found that it no longer exists.

I will continue to look for the original pattern from 1977.

  3. I’m the owner of Free Macrame Patterns and the chair was on my site for a while. It’s not the same as the original and I never did make it myself. If someone could tell me how the pattern worked out, I can put it back up. If you have any suggestions as to how I can change the pattern, let me know.

    • The rings used were from the late 1970’s and I had them in my basement. But I recently called a local business that makes and sells wrought iron railings and gates. I asked if they could make me another pair of rebar circles 36″ and they said that they would for under $75.

    • There is a set of directions on-line that you have access to make the chair. The Macrasme Supperstore sells the cord, but you will need to find a person who can cut, bend, and weld rebar into two large rings as part of assembly.

      • When you find someone to make them for you, you decide the diameter you wish to end up with. I think the pattern in for 26-28 inch. You can increase to accommodate
