May Monthly Macrame Challenge
For our new May Macrame Challenge, we’re making my latest plant hanger design with a super cute colorful X-Knot. This pattern is perfect for beginners and will show you a fun way of incorporating more colors into your Macrame pieces!
When I first discovered this cute X-knot via Macrame with Aya, I immediately envisioned this fun and colorful plant hanger. I’m so happy I get to share the tutorial with you now so you can learn how to make this easy project too!

How to slow down a YouTube video
If you want to slow down a YouTube video, you can do so by adjusting the Playback speed in the Settings Menu. Click the three dots (on mobile) or cogwheel (on desktop) and adjust the Playback speed to 0.75x to 0.25x to slow down the video.
To quickly move 10 seconds back or forth in a video, simply double-tap on the left or right of your phone screen.
