Picture of EASY - Six (or More) String Plat

Six or more string plat is really easy to make , it just takes abit of time to do.
But the end product is amazing , you could use it as a bracelet, something on your keyring, or even to hang on your bag.
You could basically do anything :)

Step 1: Step 1

Picture of Step 1

First gather a couple of strings that you will use.. contrasting colours look the best :)
you can use six (or more) different colours , or you could use two , .
i am using two because i think that it looks the best.

Step 2: Step 2

Next cut the pieces of string to the size that you like, 
long or short, it doesnt really matter , you just dont want to make it too short , becasue it is alot harder if it is really really short.. 

then you tie the strings up together at the top, 
NOTE: make sure that if you are doing yyour plat with two strings, make sure that the same colour isnt next to eachother, 
example.. black , white , black , white , .. 

Step 3: Step 3

using string 1 , weave it over and under the other strings , make sure when you get to the end to keep it away from the other strings , and pull it tight , not to tight though because you might ruin it.

Step 4: Step 4

after youve done each weave, make sure that you reorder your colours in the order they were supposed to be in when you begun.

Step 5: Step 5

you keep on weaving across, and always starting with whatever side that you originally started with , 
For me its my left side. 

Good luck , any questions ask away,.. :)
