DIY: Make a Scandinavian style knotted trivet

You’ll need a wooden embroidery hoop (I used one 5 inch and one 7 inch hoop), some wooden beads, and cotton rope (mine is 4mm cotton sash cord).

You may be surprised at the amount of rope you’ll need – I was! The 5 inch embroidery hoop has a circumference of 46 cm (18 inches) and I used 6.4 metres (21 feet) of rope. So the amount of rope I used is almost 14 x the circumference.

Happy crafting guys! I am busy sanding down a set of drawers for our baby room, and hopefully me and mike will start painting it tonight. Check us out on Instagram for updates (@polliblog).
