You can use as many strings as you like, the only knot you need to know is the chain knot, also called double chain knot.
Materials and Set Up
Four different colors about your armspan and a half
Fold your four strings in half and knot a loop at the top
Take the strings and separate them into groups according to color. Think of the first color as 1, the second color as 2, the third color as 3, and the fourth color as 4.
Step by Step, knotting row by row
Grab both strings of 1 and both strings of 2. Do a double chain knot with these two groups of strings. Make sure you start with half a forward knot then half a backward knot.
Take the group 3 string colors and grab both of them in a group. Do the same with group 4 colored strings. Do a double chain knot using those groups.
Take the string groups, 2 and 3 and make a double chain knot. Repeat until bracelet is at desired length.The structure is like this, just like a normal bracelet: ( The knots in the actual bracelet are ofcourse much closer together than this! )
Finish of with two braids, add any beads and/or extra details that you would like. Then wear your bracelet or give it to a friend!If you use three strings you make the knots like this:
If you want to make a wider bracelet you can simply multiply this: The third string will make a chain knot with the fourth, the fourth with the fifth, and so on.
*As you may have noticed: you're knotting in diagonal lines now, instead of in rows, but the end-resul
This is what they look like when using different string amounts.
1 3 strings, doubled
2 4 strings
3 6 strings
4 7 strings, doubled
5 16 strings, 8 strings on the left all forward chain knots ( first half is forwards ) , 8 strings on the right all backward ( first half is backwards ) chain knots.
1-14 Make chain knots like the descripti
1-2 first knot, first and second string used
3-4 second knot, second and third string used
5-6 third knot, third and fourth string used
7-8 fourth knot, fourth and fifth string used
9-10 fifth knot, fifth and sixth string used
11-12 sixth knot, sixth and seventh string used
13-14 seventh knot, seventh and eighth string used
15-16 Do the same, but mirrored, from the right side to the middle.
17-18 Now you only need to connect the two middle strings with a chain knot. I'm doing first row normal (forward) chain knot, next row mirrored (backward
I'm knotting in diagonal lines here. To make a straight start you need to start with the two middle strings, then take the strings next to these, etc. Just like the start of a chevron, only with chain knots instead of regular knots.
