Retired - Quatrefoil Choker

PROJECT N8010
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
This choker incorporates traditional chevron friendship bracelet weaving into a necklace design using ribbon crimps and a TierraCast connector focal. Dapped curb chain provides adjustable sizing for the piece.
Instructions
This choker has a chain extension to allow for an adjustable length of up to 15 inches. If you are not using a tying station, you will also need some tape to attach your weaving to a tabletop while you work.
  1. If you are new to chevron friendship bracelet weaving, please watch our video: How to Weave a Chevron Friendship Bracelet with a Button Clasp. Using what you have learned in the video, begin by cutting 7 feet of each of your 4 S-Lon cords.
  2. Fold your cords in half and tie an overhand knot, creating a 1 inch loop at the top. Attach your loop to the tabletop using tape, or load it onto your tying station. Follow along with the video to create a 3.25 inch length of chevron weaving, alternating your bands of color as follows: Rose Pink, Gray, Turquoise, and Purple.
  3. Next, please watch our video: How to Finish Friendship Bracelet Weaving With Ribbon Crimps. Using what you have learned in the video, attach ribbon crimps to either side of you weave.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 to create your second section of chevron weaving for the opposite side of your bracelet.
  5. Using flush cutters, cut two lengths of chain that are 4.5 inches and 2 inches long respectively.
  6. Follow along with the video to attach your connector focal, extension chain, and clasp. Enjoy your choker!
