Introduction: Diagonal Knotted Bracelet
This kind of bracelet takes a bit more practice than the ordinary knotted bracelet. I suggest you try my instructible 'Knotted bracelet' and get the hang of that, then try this. You can permanently tie it to your ankle or wrist, so i chose to tie it to my ankle, but if you want to be able to take it off, look at my other instructible knotted bracelet to see how to attach a clip! Good luck and have fun!
Step 1: Here's What You'll Need:
To make this project you will need:
-4 different colors of embroidery thread
*To simplify the directions use the colors I used, but you can choose any 4 colors that you like.
My colors: Orange, green, pink, peach
Step 2: Cut & Knot
First measure and cut you four strands 24" long. Line up your four strands and tie a knot about 1/2 from the end of your threads. It does not have to be perfectly 1/2 an inch from the end, but around that area.
Step 3: Tape
Tape the knot to a flat surface and spread out each strand so no color is touching.
Step 4: Number "4"
Take the orange thread and place it over the green thread so it looks like a number "4". ( Look at picture below)
Step 5: The First Initial Knot
Now take the orange thread and loop it under neath the green thread, and once it looks like the image below pull on the ends of the green and orange threads to form a knot.
Step 6: Repeat!
Repeat! Make another knot with the orange and green thread, then make two knots with the orange and pink, and then two more knots on the orange thread to the peach!
Step 7: Continue Until It Fits Your Wrist
Once you have reached the end of the line with the orange thread (Order should now be green, pink, peach, orange) you should have the green thread now on the far left. Repeat steps 4, 5, and 6 until your bracelet fits all the way around your wrist or ankle.
Step 8: The Final Knot
Get a friend to help you tie the two end's around your wrist or ankle, and this is what the final product looks like!
