Retired - Christmas Garland Macrame Bracelet

PROJECT B2075
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Wrap this Christmas Garland around your wrist this holiday season to show off your festive decorating spirit!
Instructions
These instructions will make a wrap bracelet that will fit 6.5 inch wrist. To lengthen this bracelet you can adjust the number of red beads or add longer lengths of macrame knotting.
  1. Begin by cutting two strands of Super-Lon cord. One 6 feet in length and the other 14 feet in length. It is better to be safe than sorry with these lengths.
  2. Fold both strands in half and line up the centers of your two pieces. Tie an overhand knot. Make sure your loop is about 1/4 of an inch. This is where the knot will fit through at the end.
  3. If you are using a Macrame Board place your piece onto the board.
  4. Begin making twisted half square macrame knots.
  5. Continue the knotting for one inch. Thread on one red bead on to the two inner cords. Continue knotting for one inch. Add another red bead on to the two inner cords.
  6. Now thread on one tree bead on to all four cords. Separate the strands into the shorter inner, and the longer outer cords.
  7. Continue the knotting with the outer cords.
  8. You will continue knotting one inch in-between each bead. Repeat for 9 red beads, 1 tree and 2 red beads.
  9. Finish your knotting with one last inch of twisted square knots.
  10. Take all four strands and tie an overhand knot. Add GS Hypo Cement to the knot to secure it in place. The knot should be able to fit through the loop on the other side of your knotting.
  11. Trim the ends of the cord.
