How long should my strings be? by CKatLau 3 years ago

Send PM
I'd like to make these two bracelet patterns.

http://www.friendship-bracelets.net/pattern.php?id=1112

http://www.friendship-bracelets.net/pattern.php?id=5028

How much string do I need to make those bracelets? My wrist is 6.5", by the way :)
Is there any way to tell for my future references?

Thanks! I plan on making these while I'm on the plane heading to Florida tomorrow! :)

pattern 1112- should be about 48" to 54"
pattern 5028- should be about 36"

i think that should be enough. and my wrist is about 6.5". just slightly smaller. but you can braid the ends on pattern 1112 to fit you perfectly.
but do u make that loop thing at the top when you do pattern 1112?

I usually don't. But I were to, how much longer would I make my strings?

I just realized that I forgot how to make the loop at the top ): I made one like years ago and totally forgot, lol.

Don't you need to fold it in half then tie off the loop? But then doesn't that double your number of strings?

:D

Yes, but when you cut the strings you're only going to cut half of what it says. like if you have eight strings for the whole pattern then you're only going to cut four strings, then fold them in half.

Now I remember! As I was waiting for a reply, I tried to remember how I did it last time. And I thought I had the right idea... and your reply confirmed that I was correct :)

Thanks so much! :)
