Materials NeededMaterials Needed:

  • 5 colors of craft thread
  • Tape or safety pins
  • Rulers or measuring tape
  • Scissors

DirectionsDirections:

  1. Cut 2 pieces of each color thread to 36″ in length.
  2. Make sure the ends are even and loop one end and knot together.  Tape or pin down in the order you want the colored stripes.
  3. Start on the left side and make a left knot with the first color.  Make left knots with this color across the remaining strands.
  4. Start again on the left side and make left knots across with the other strands.
  5. Repeat knots always starting with the left thread and working left to right.  A diagonal pattern will begin to form.
  6. Work until the length is right for your wrist.
  7. Once the bracelet is long enough, tie a knot at the end, leaving a 4″ tail and trim.
  8. Wrap the bracelet around your wrist and tie the tail end to the looped end.
