First Variation


This type is good for when the pattern is symmetrical at the top

Step by Step



Step 1


[p]After you have cut out your string fold in half



Step 2


Tie a knot a little off center



Step 3


Braid the strings a short ways. The length of the braid depends on the width of the bracelet



Step 4


Tie a knot at the end of the braid



Step 5


Pull each individual string on both knots tight to tighten the knots



Step 6


Pin the top down so the knots are apart



Step 7


When starting to knot make sure to keep the big knots on the outside.




Step 8


If you try and pull the knots tight in the beginning or dont separate the big knots the bracelet will look messed up.



Second Variation


This type is good for when the colors are split in half (pattern 2667)



Step by Step



Step 1


Split the strings and half like your making two bracelets. Then fold in half and braid like the above but take out the knots



Step 2


Tie one braid in a loop. Put the other braid through the first loop and tie in a loop



Step 3


Pin the knots apart and be sure they stay apart when you start knotting
