This is an easy-made bracelet, perfect for summers. Made of hemp, it completes the summertime beach look.
- One 60 inch strand of hemp (or any type of string/yarn)
- One 24 inch strand of hemp (or any type of string/yarn)
- Glue (optional)
Take both strands of hemp and fold them in half. Tie a loop at the midpoints, so that the loop has four strands coming out of it.
Put the loop under the clipboard to keep it in place. Set up the strands so the two short ones are in the middle, with a long strand on either side.
Take the long strand on the right, and put it loosely over the top of the two middle strands, so it looks like a backwards 4.
Leaving the strand on the right in place, take the long strand on the left and loop it over the end of the backwards 4, under the two middle strands, and up through the loop of the backwards 4.
Pull gently on the end of both long strands, until the knot reaches the top of the bracelet and becomes tight.
Now we do the same thing, except for in reverse.
Take the strand on the left, and put it loosely over the two middle strands so it creates the figure of a 4.
Leave that strand in place, and take the strand on the right, looping it over the other long strand in the end of the 4, under the two middle strands, and up through the loop of the 4.
Pull the two ends of the long strands until the knot becomes tight at the top. Your bracelet so far should look something like this:
Repeat steps 3-8, until the bracelet is long enough.
Step 10 (optional)
Tie off the bracelet in a big knot, small enough that it can fit through the loop, but big enough that it wont fall out easily. Put a bit of glue on the loose end of the knot. After the glue dries, cut off the loose ends close to the knot.
Tada! Your perfect summer bracelet is complete!
