Step 1: Preparing
For this project, use medium (worsted) yarn, and pick out three colors of your choice (In this case: Blue, Purple and Pink) .
Step 2: Cutting
Take your yarn and cut a 140 cm string. Do the same for the others.
Step 3: Tying
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
Now, you should have 6 strings below the knot. Arrange these into a pattern of your choice. (Blue, Pink, Purple, Blue, Pink, Purple for us)
Step 5: Weaving
Now that you have your pattern, take the outermost thread (Blue) and the one next to it (Pink) and make a four (4), with the pink being a straight line and the blue being a triangle.
Step 6: Knotting
Bring the blue tread under the pink one and pull it up, making a knot. Do this again and move on to the next thread (Purple) .
Step 7: Repeat
Keep doing this with all the 6 threads until you have reached the last thread. Then, repeat Step 5-6 until the bracelet is your desired size.
Step 8: Finishing
When your bracelet is done, tie a knot with all the threads of yarn and cut them all of except for one. Do the same with the top part. To wear this, just tie the leftover thread to the other.
