2.0.5 - Step 6
2.0.6 - Step 7
The first thing you do is take the strings you are using and make a knot at the very top of them.
Then seperate them into 2 groups (I find it looks cooler if a side is different colors and not just one).
With the group on the left, twist all the strings between your fingers to the right.
Next while still holding the 1st group, take the second group an twist this also to the right.
Then with both groups twisted, take the one on the right and put it over the one on the left.(You are just now twisting the 2 groups to the left)
I usually do this for an inch and a half to two inches but the length depends on your preference and the length of your bracelet and the size of your wrist(or ankle)
After it is twisted, make another knot at the bottom of the twist but leave string so there is still more than enough string to make your pattern
When your pattern is done, do the same thing at the bottom.
good luck!! ;)
Cut the wires and other short.
Separated one of the strings, make a "knot lark" with red string uniting in half the other strings
Twist the strings on the left (the first part)
Twist the strings on the right (the second part)
Unite the two part
Making a "flat knot" in the end of the buckle, using separate thread of step 2
In one bracelet you can do two buckles.
