(( Patterns )) How to tie #39449 - cupcake
This is a bracelet that I made up by carefully tweaking a pattern that was already posted.
You can find the original (icecream cone) pattern I based my pattern off of by searching for #4505
I didn't think the icecream cone made a good cupcake so I edited the pattern and adjusted some knots to flatten out the bottom and make it look more like a cupcake and less like an icecream cone.
NOTE: This is the first time(s) I've ever made this bracelet. I wasn't happy with the dark brown background but I also wasn't too happy with the light pink background. Sorry if you don't like how it came out- I don't like it much (because of the color choices) but a pattern is a pattern, right? They can always be improved on!
The colors listed below are for the first [Pink Background] Version of the bracelet!
There are 12 Strings total and you will be using 4 different colors.
1 = Pink (Background Color)noooooooooo
[Note: You may substitute with your own colors to customize your bracelet!]
You will need to cut 3 Pink, 1 White and 1 Brown 65" (inches) long
Fold the 65" strands in half and cut yourself two more strings half their length:
1 Red (about 33" inches)
1 Extra Pink (about 33" inches)
Tie all of your strands together (including the two short strands) by making an overhand knot.
You should now have a small loop and a total of 7 Pink, 1 red, 2 white and 2 brown strings.
Set Up Your Strings As Follows: 1 2 1 3 1 3 (middle point) 1 4 1 4 1 1
Though I labeled the middle point there will be no middle for this bracelet since it is in a 1 2 1 2 pattern style.
I only marked it as the (middle point) to help you guys organize your strands- you may also want to make a loom.
You will be using MIXED KNOTS (FK/BK and BK/FK) ONLY to make this bracelet.
** Remember: For this bracelet you will be working with your strings as pairs.**
IMPORTANT: For each EVEN row (2, 4, 6, 8 etc) you will be leaving out the FIRST and LAST strings.
[Tip: I will mark the rows that need the first and last string left out with an " "]
