MaterialsAt least seven strands of string, 60 inches each, folded in half (making fourteen working strings)
Start with your favorite way of starting a bracelet. this could be a buckle, a braid on each end (in this case, your starting strings should be a bit longer), or a simple overhand knot. I chose to make my version of the buckle. Search the tutorial page for direction
Pick your first color. This will be your first wrapping string. Set aside.
Pick two more strings. These will be your "criss-cro
With your optional criss-cro
Begin wrapping! Simply wrap this thread tightly around your bunch of strings, making sure there is no overlap or spaces.
Decide how much of your bracelet you'd like wrapped in this color. You could wrap your entire bracelet in this color, but for this bracelet, I'm going to stop at about 3/4 inch. To keep the string from unravelin
Now's the time to use your optional criss-cro
Holding your criss-cro
Swirl Wrap Variationby horse_lov
The swirl wrap is a lot like the braid and wrap.
You take however many strings you want, but it has it be more than 6 because then it will look weird. Two of each color.[h1]Step by Step[/h1]
Take the first 2 and wrap it around all of the strings tightly, and end it with a forward knot.
Then you take one color and do the Chinese Staircase (its just forward knots).
Then, for the next one you can take 2 strings of 2 colors and leave one pair out and wrap it with the strings you kept. Then take the 2 that you left out and you can criss cross it or wrap
it loosely around what you have all ready wrapped!
