(( Bracelets )) Eternity Bracelet
This is a very easy bracelet for those of you who know how to tie a candy stripe and chevron.
You need 8 strings of 4 colors, 2 of each color. Begin your bracelet anyway you want, and arrange them so they are next to their matching color.
You are going to start knotting a chevron, but do NOT tie the middle together.
Keep knotting it like two sparate candy stripes ( I shall refer to them as the right and left columns) until you have four rows on each section.
Take the most inward string from the left side and forward knot it to the right inward most string.
Continue to knot it all the way to the outside.
Tie the other middle string to the left all the way to the outside.
Repeat steps 3 and 4.
Take the outside string of the left column and tie it inward. Do with both strings of the same color. Repeat with the right column.
Tie the outside strings ones inward again. Make sure you remember not to tie them to the other collumn.
Repeat steps 3-8 until you have the bracelet as long as needed.
Made with 2 different colors (2 of 70" long, 2 of 32" long) arranged:
1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 2R, 2R, 2R, 2R.
Threads should be prepared in the usual way -- folded in half.
The middle threads, '1L, 1L, 2R, 2R' will be the longer ones, after Step 1 they will be the only ones used.
Left side: Make 3 forward knots, 4 times.
Right side: Make 3 backward knots, 4 times.
In the middle, make forward knot to join both sides.
Left side: Make 3 backward knots.
Right side: Make 3 forward knots.
Repeat #2 and #3.
Left side: Make 3 forward knots.
Right side: Make 3 backward knots.
Repeat from #2 for pattern.
