Chevron Friendship Bracelet

Product Details

1. Cut the embroidery floss or craft thread about 60-65 inches for each color depending on your wrist size. You need at least 6 strands of string (3 on each side) but you can use any even number of strands (the more strings you use, the more complex color arrangements you can play with and the wider your bracelet will be).

2. Clip it to your clipboard, safety pin it to your pants or a pillow, or tape it to your work surface. You can also use a binder clip with a binder or book. Alternatively, you can just tie it to a drawer handle.

3. Arrange the strands in a mirror-image pattern so the two outside strands are the same color and so on going inwards. Pretend there is an imaginary line in the middle.

4. Starting with the outer-right string, tie a right knot twice on the adjacent string (the second from the right). To tie a right knot, make a ninety degree angle with the tying string over the top of the string you are tying it to. Then loop the tying string underneath the other string and pull tight (remember to make two knots on each string). Once you have knotted the outer right string to the one next to it, do the same to the next string closer to the middle. Continue this process until you've reached the middle. Note: The string you are tying with should now be in the middle after starting as the outermost string on the right.

5. From the left side, tie left knots with the outer-left strand until you reach the middle. To tie a left knot, do the same as the right knot but reversed. Then, tie a left or right knot (doesn't matter) with the two middle strands to connect the two sides (be sure to tie the knot twice). Note: If you have done everything correctly up to this point, the strands you are tying together in the middle will be the same color.

6. Repeat steps 4-5 until you reach the desired length, always starting with the outermost strands on each side. These strands should always be the same color. Once you've reached your desired length, tie a knot.

7. Braid both ends and tie a knot to finish off your bracelet. The braided ends should be long enough to be tie strings for tying your bracelet onto the desired wrist or ankle. Note: Don't worry about having even strands to braid.
