I really like this friendship bracelet so I have decided to make one and a DIY with it. Hope you like it.
You will need:
-different color threads (6)
You'll have to pin or maskin the threads to a table or something, that will help you to make the bracelet easier.
Start by cutting several strands of embroidery thread at about 24 inches each. Make sure there are two sets of each color. Combine the threads and tie a knot, leaving at least 3 inches of slack. Tape it to a flat surface or safety pin it to a pillow. Separate the two sets, arranging the strands in a mirror-image pattern with the outside strands the same color and so on moving inwards.
Start on the left side with the outermost color (shown here in violet) and make a forward knot by creating a 4-shape over the 2nd color, loop it under and back through the opening.
Pull up and to the right to tighten. Make the same knot twice over each color. Continue knotting over each color, towards the right, until the outermost color has carried over to the middle. This is one half of the chevron pattern.
Now pick up the outermost color on the right side (show here in violet) and make a backward knot, creating a reverse 4-shape over the 2nd color, loop it under and back through the opening. Pull up and to the left to tighten. Don’t forget to knot twice over each color!
Continue knotting towards the left until the outermost strand reaches the middle. Tie a backwards knot with the two middle strands to connect the two halves. Did you remember to knot twice? The first chevron row is complete! Continue with the the next color, which is now the outermost strand . . .
Remembering the color order is important for the first few rows but after the 3rd or 4th row, the strands will fall nicely in place.
To finish the bracelet divide in two equal parts the threads and then with each part make a braid.
THIS SHOULD BE THE RESULT!!
HOPE YOU LIKE IT!!
