Bohemian Orange Hemp Bracelet

PROJECT B2359
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
A classic hemp macrame bracelet is given a pop of metallic color with Czech Glass Etched Orange seed beads.
Instructions
This bracelet measures approximately 6 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the length woven and beads added respectively.
  1. You can see a similar technique for this design in this video here.
  2. Cut two strands of hemp cord; one 3 feet long, one 6 feet. Fold each at their respective centers and tie an overhand knot leaving a loop for the clasp. (Note: This will give you more than enough to extend the bracelet if you find you want a longer bracelet).
  3. Place the knot into the top center slot of the macrame board.
  4. Make 1 full square knot with the longer ends of the cord. Then continue but as you make a square knot string on one bead on the to each outside strand for each 1st half of the square knot.
  5. Keep knotting until you have your desired length with beads.
  6. Tie all four cords in an overhand knot and remove it from the board. This knot will become the closure with the loop at the beginning.
