Step 1: Gather Your Materials
-4 different colors of embroidery floss
-something smooth to work on
Step 2: Cut and Measure Your String
-small wrist: 25 to 30 inches
-medium wrist: 30-35 inches
-large wrist: 35-40 inches
These might not be entirely accurate, so just remember that it's better to have too much string than too little.
Step 3: Starting It Off
Step 4: Spread the Strings Out
Step 5: The Knot
Here's where things get a little tricky, but I'll try my best to explain, and maybe the video will help.
Take String 1 (remember 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 3, 2, 1) on the left in your left hand, and String 2 in your right. Take String 1 and lay it across String 2, so it makes a right triangle pointing towards the left. Then, still holding String 2 in your right hand, take your left hand through the middle of the triangle and grab on to the end of String 1. Pull String 1 under String 2 and through the triangle, and then pull it tightly until your knot slides to the top of the bracelet. Do this twice with String 1 and 2.
Step 6: Keep Going
Now that you know the basic knot, keep going. For the chevron pattern, this is what you'll need to do:
Knot String 1 (two times each) onto Strings 2,3, and 4 on the left.
Do the same on the right side, knotting the right String 1 onto the right 2, 3, and 4.
Now you should have both String 1's in the middle. Take the left String 1 and do ONE knot onto String 2. Then, take String 2 and do ONE knot onto String 1. The strings should switch positions.
Repeat this, now starting with left String 2 onto left Strings 3, 4, and 1.
If you didn't get that, try watching the video. :)
Keep going until your bracelet is the desired length.
