(( Bracelets )) A New Shaped ZigZag
I honestly have no idea where I first saw this pattern. Although you get a shaped bracelet (like in this tutorial), the idea for this kind of zigzag is a lot more like this one. This makes for a nice, neat zigzag shape with almost perfect 90 degree angles.
On doubling the bracelet
A note about the strings
This bracelet is very flexible. In this tutorial, I will be using 6 strands (hot pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple), but you can use as many as you like! (I don't recommend using fewer than 6.)
As for the string length, it really depends on your wrist size and how tightly you tie your knots. However, if you'd really like a general guideline
This bracelet is pretty easy, but can be kind of a pain to knot due to the changing direction of the stresses as you tie the strings (e.g. your anchor might not always feel so anchor-y)
Begin the bracelet however you prefer, I used an overhead knot. then, lay out the strings in order, I'm using rainbow order- R|O|Y|G|B
Step 2Take your first string (R) and do forward knots across all the strings.
Step 3Take the next string (O), and make FKs across all but the last string (R).
Step 4Continue decreasin
step 2As in Part 1, decrease the number of knots you make with each color. Again, the last string (P) will not show.
This is where we deviate from this tutorial!
Take your last string (P) and make BKs across all the other strands.
step 2Continue BK across with your other colors, decreasin
Step 2Just like in the other parts, decrease the number of knots across with each color.
I hope this tutorial has been clear and informati
