(( Bracelets )) Straight Wave
Cut 28 inches of 4 colors you like.
Cut 18 inches long of any random color (16 inches long if you have a small wrist).
*Note* The random color will not show.
Set up your strings in this order:
| A | B | C | D | E | E | D | C | B | A |
Take your furthest string(A) from the right and go over all the other strings(A B C D)make a backwards knot onto the string in the middle(string E) from the right and then onto the next string(E) from the left.
Take your furthest string(A) from the opposite side(left) and go over all the other strings(A B C D)make a fowards knot onto the 2 middle strings(first on string E from the left then on string E from the right).
Repeat steps 1-2 until you have the desired length of your bracelet.
(You can also do the box knot down the middle to make it "double-sided")
You will need:
-3 different colored strings, 60 inches (folded in half) or 30 inches (unfolded)
-one thick string or a bunch of normal strings, 26 inches (folded in half) or 13 inches (unfolded)
-one clipboard (or something you can hold your bracelet with, but I'm sure most of you have a clipboard at you :) )
-If you don't know how to make a Macrame Knot, I will explain how it's made. You have to know, though, how a loop is made!
-You can use how many strings you want, but I use three, because 3 is the minimum!
-I'll use a loop (because it's more classy and practical for me), you'll need one of the strings longer (with 4-5 inches for each side).
First of all, you should make a loop (at least that's what I do :) ). You can do any kind of loop you desire.
Now, arrange the strings in this order:
| | | | | |
- The thick string/bunch of strings
[p]Now, we will make a Macrame Knot
First, make a '4' with the first string over the string.
Pick up the second string and put it over the first string (you actually make now the real '4' :)) ).
To finish the first half-knot, pull the second string under the string and then through the '4''s loop.
To see this half-knot, pull the two strings.
Now you've made a half-knot!
You'll now make the second half-knot!
Take the first string and make a '4' under the V string.
Put the second string under the first string (and now you've made another '4').
Now, pull the second string over the string and trough the '4''s loop.
To finish the half-knot and the Macrame Knot, pull the strings
You finished one Macrame Knot!!!! Yeey :)))!
Now, your position of strings should be this one:
| | | | | |
Make another Macrame Knot with the strings on the string, but not on the other strings, just on the string.
The position of the strings should be this:
| | | | | |
Now, make another Macrame Knot with the strings on the string, but not on the other strings, just on the string.
Repeat the Steps1 to 8, until you reach the desired length! The length of the strings is suitable for 5 inches of bracelet. So the length of the bracelet depends on the length of the strings.
After you finish Step 11, make two braids of 5 inches each.
Then, finish them with a big knot or in another way.
For the ones who know how to make a Macrame Knot, the Steps 3 to 8, well, you can consider them as one Macrame Knot, but as you know the rule, already, knot just on the , not on the other strings!
I hope the tutorial was clear enough? If not, feel free to comment or PM me and I will edit the tutorial, or answer the questions.
In my opinion, the tutorial is pretty easy, so I can't wait for you to put your photos of it here!!!
This is the result:
This video includes plastic strings, but it's exactly the same principle of the tutorial... So, I hope it helps!
This is the same pattern, but placing the strings in different order. Instead of putting the strings as or however its done, put the strings as . Hope this helps =)
