I think it should be like a meter long.

It always depends on the thread you are using (if it is thin or thick), how long your bracelet should be and if the threads are showing or if they are just there for transporteng the showing knots.

For most thin bracelets with few threads one meter should be more than enough, for more complicated or wider ones you might need longer threads.

A meter is a huge amount. I 50-75 centimeters is enough. This bracelet isn't too thick, so you should be good with 75 cm.

As a general rule, I cut somewhere between the length of my arm from tip of my middle finger to my sternum. Shorter when I feel the threads don't need to be too long. You can always tie threads on if you need more... it takes some getting used to at first, but once you figure it out, they blend in pretty well.

This is a tutorial for estimating stringlength.
