How in the world...? by MexiPeanut 7 years ago

Hey guys,
Soooo many of the bracelets people make have these loop closures. I really do not understand them.
What I mean is that I know how to MAKE the loops, but I don't understand how to tie them on my/other people's wrists. Can someone plz tell me how it is done?

Basically you have a loop on the top, and usually 2 braids on the bottom. You just stick one braid through the loop and then tie the braids as usual. tutorial for larkshead loop

A different way is having a second loop-like structure on the bottom, and/or a single braid after it. In this method the braid is put through both loops a few times to lock it in place without tying. (as in this tutorial about macrame buckles and ends

when you have a loop in the end of the bracelet you should make two Braids with your strings. you should put one one the braids in your loop and tie the other braid on it. That's the way I do it. I hope this helps you. I don't know if its helpful or not because I'm not a native English speaker
