(( Bracelets )) Starry Night 'shaped' Bracelet
It uses the shaped bracelets-technique .
This picture shows a doubled version of this pattern:
String order: A B A C A D AAAA D A C A B A
The first and last A are border-strings. You can leave them out if you want.
Take one of the middle black strings and knot it (like a chevron) around all of the strings, to the outside. Every last knot will be a forward-backward knot, or a backward-forward knot when you're knotting the left half of the bracelet.
Take another middle black string and repeat the previous step.
Knot the blue strings D together.
Now the shaping will start:
*Every next step will describe the knotting of the right half. The left half will be the same, but mirrored.
The black string is knotted around the blue string with a backward-forward knot.
The golden string is knotted around both blue and black strings, with a backward-forward knot.
The next black string is knotted around only the golden string, with a backward knot.
The red B string is knotted around the golden string, with a backward-forward knot.
The black string (same as used in step 7) is knotted around the blue and black strings, with a backward-forward knot.
The same black string is knotted around the golden string, with a forward knot.
Repeat step 6: Gold around blue and black.
Repeat step 5: Black around blue.
You can also do the shaping like this. It doesn't make much difference for the final bracelet. The last picture shows both ways, the bottom one is the 'alternative' knotted version.
Knot the black string around blue, black and gold, with a backward-forward knot.
Knot the red string around the previously used black string, with a backward-forward knot.
Repeat step *7.
Repeat everything on the left side.
Knot the black strings next to the red strings from the outside to the middle, like a chevron.
Repeat step 14 with the next black strings.
Knot the blue strings together and finish the black 'chevrons'.
One square of the bracelet finished:
The sides are knotted just like the middle squares, only half of it. These pictures show the knotting of the sides with the alternative steps *7, 8, 9, 10.
