Fold all the yarn in half, then tie a knot. To keep the yarn steady while weaving, bring a safety pin through the loop and attach to a sturdy place, or tape to a book and keep it on your lap.

Step 4: Pattern

It has been years since I have made bracelets similar to this. I always used embroidery floss, but I think I like the bulk and look of the yarn better. Nice work!
