Get out your hemp twine. if you don't want to use hemp there is a wide variety of colored cord you can chose from. the thicker the cord the bigger your bracelet or necklace. Cut off two long strands.

always wondered how they did that....

TY for sharing
I like the "take it with you" approach. I'm always falling asleep in the passenger's seat, so this is a great idea!
Alittle too fast of a video but after watching it a few times a figured out how to make a pretty cool braclet :) (';')

Great Instructible. I'm going to make one tonight. However, for a necklace, I'd make sure it has a weak point or clasp so if it does get trapped or pulled it breaks away and doesn't strangle you!

Roughly, how long should it be for both a bracelet and necklace? Using twine like yours?

mine doesn't twist like yours does, it just stays flat :P idk what I did wrong but it still looks cool thanks
ok dude heres what you gotta do .Always do your first cross over from the same side it doesnt matter what side but its gotta be the same side

You keep alternating which cord goes over which, you have to keep going the same to to make it spiral.

after you attach the hemp to the dowel or pencil, putting the pencil under a clip board really helps, 2 free hands and a work surface
thanks !! well done !!

Where did you buy the roll of hemp? How much was it?
I usually get my hemp and other knotting materials here it is good quality. The hemp and cotton cord is closer to the bottom of the page.

thanks guys it worked and the bracelet looks great
Rather than holding on to the dowel the whole time, after finishing this step, put the dowel under your toes and bring the hemp between your big toe and the next. This way you have two hands free and can make tighter knots.

I make these all the time, but i never thought of putting it on a dowel, I always just tape it to my leg haha.
