(( Bracelets )) Tornado Twist Friendship Bracelet
Material: Six Stranded Embroidery Floss
You will need: Full strands of (5) different colors.
NOTE: This pattern can be done with more or less threads.
Each thread should be 55-65" (inches) long and then folded in half to form a beginning loop.
? String Setup Guide ?
1 - Pink
2 - Orange
3 - Yellow
4 - Green
5 - Blue
Pair up your threads so you have them set as:
11 22 33 44 55
For the first row you will make a candystripe with the closest (1 pink) thread over the right four pairs of threads. 22 - 33 - 44 - 55 will be held together as a single base thread and will not be used individually. For the second row make a candystripe with the remaining (1 pink) thread across the right four pairs again.
Once you have the two candystripe rows done make 5 chinese staircase knots with each pair.
22 - 33 - 44 - 55 - 11
At this point you will use the closest (2 orange) to make 4 forward knots over the right four pairs of threads.
Next you will use the remaining (2 orange) thread to make 4 forward knots over the right four pairs of threads.
New Setup will be 33 - 44 - 55 - 11 - 22
Once again you will use your pairs for 5 chinese staircase knots.
Start again from the candystripe with the closest thread and work over the pairs of threads... then with the remaining thread work over the four pairs once again.
Chinese staircase ALL of the pairs 5 times.
Repeat for insanity. (And a finished bracelet)
