Retired - Arrow Macrame Bracelet

PROJECT B2017
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Grab your quiver and ready your bow, for a great trend in jewelry, the arrow! This macrame bracelet is unisex with the black and brown Super-Lon cord.
Instructions
  1. Begin by using the Eurotool Two hole punch on the 1.6mm side. About 5mm from the tip of the arrow point, in the center, is where you will punch the hole.
  2. Once you have punched the holes, take the bracelet bending pliers and begin at one end of the arrow and slowly bend the arrow by pressing down, releasing and moving across the arrow.
  3. Cut two 4' lengths of Super-Lon black and two 4' lengths of Super-Lon brown.
  4. Now take one black strand and one brown strand and put them together. Measure to 1' and fold over the cords. Insert the folded ends through one of the holes in the arrow so that a loop is formed coming out the hole. Then bring the ends of the cord (all four pieces) through the loop and pull tight to form a larks head knot.
  5. If you are using the Macrame Board, place the knot into one of the notches to begin your knotting.
  6. Use the longer cords, which should be one black and one brown, to tie square knots around the shorter cords. Continue knotting until the knotting measures about 1.5". Finish off your knotting as demonstrated in this video. (Make sure to add a dab of E6000 into the knot and trim the outside cords close after the glue dries.)
  7. Repeat this process with the other lengths of the cord on the the side of the arrow.
  8. Measure about 3" from the end of the knotting and tie the inner cords together in an overhand knot on each side.
  9. Then using the scraps of S-Lon, create a sliding knot clasp with four square knots as demonstrated in this video. (Make sure to use a dab of E6000 into the knot and trim the outside cords close after the glue dries.)
