(( Bracelets )) Cross BraceletHello! :)
This is a very easy bracelet tutorial! ;D
Good luck! <3
Things you need:
- string: about 150 cm, plus a short piece for the cross : about 30-40 cm
- a short piece of straw : about 3 cm
Put your long piece of string alongside the straw.
Wrap the string around the straw. The string goes from the front of the straw up, and at the back of the straw down again.
The string goes up again in front of the straw and to the left, making a X.
Wrap the string a few times around the straw, to the left. About 5-7 times is enough.
Put the end of the string through the straw, from left to right. Pull it all the way through.
Slide the straw to the right. Pull the string till the knot is tight. You can adjust the placing of the knot a little while tightening it.
Repeat to make more wrap-knots.
At the end you can make the last knot with the beginning of the bracelet alongside the straw to make a sliding closure.
To complete the bracelet you can make a cross at the end of the bracelet:
Making the cross
Make one knot like the tutorial above. Make another knot next to the first knot, with a small space inbetween.
Make a third knot next to the last one. You can make the knots with less wraps if you like, that'll make the knot a little shorter.
Take the shorter string and knot it inbetween the first and the second knot with a regular forward knot.
Step 3 and 4
Make a wrap-knot with each of the ends of the shorter string, close to the other string/knots.
You can cut and burn the ends if you used nylon string like I did. If you used normal string you'd better first make the wrap-knots at the sides(with the shorter string) and wrap the second and third wrap-knots around the ends of both side-knots as well. (Like the sliding knot.)
That way you'll only have strings sticking out of the bottom of the cross.
