Retired - Just Breathe Bracelet

PROJECT B2154
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
You can say anything with alphabet beads and macrame square knots provide the perfect frame for your words of encouragement, enlightenment or inside joke among best friends.
Instructions
These instructions will give you a 7 inch bracelet. To adjust the length, modify the length of square knotting evenly on both ends.
  1. Cut two lengths of waxed cotton cord, 10 feet and 4 feet.
  2. Fold each length in half and match up the centers. Tie an overhand knot about 1/2 from the center forming a loop.
  3. Place the loop in the top of the macrame board, the shorter ends in the bottom center notch.
  4. Using the two longer pieces you will make macrame square knots for 2 inches.
  5. Slide on the "B" bead onto the two center strands, make two more square knots.
  6. Repeat the above step with the letters: "R", "E", "A", "T", "H", and "E".
  7. Make square knots for another 2 inches.
  8. Take the two outer strands and thread them through the button.
  9. Gather all four strands and tie an overhand knot, securing the button.
  10. Add a dab of Super New Glue to the knot and trim the ends.
  11. All done!
