Retired - Knotty Neons Bracelet in Bright Neon

PROJECT B1104
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
Delicate macrame knotting highlights the assortment of bright neon colors in this bracelet.
Instructions
You will also need some transparent tape for this project.
  1. Before you begin, watch the video: How to Make a Knotting Cord Macrame Bracelet. This video will walk you through the entire process of making this bracelet.
  2. Cut two 3' lengths of each color of knotting cord. Arrange them as shown in the video and make a knot near the top.
  3. Following the instructions in the video, knot your cords in the pattern demonstrated.
  4. Continue until your knotting has reached the desired length. The clasp will add just under 3/4" to your finished length, so be sure to subtract that from your desired length when calculating how long to make your macrame. I made my knotting about 6" long.
  5. Use transparent tape, ribbon crimps, and E6000 glue to finish the ends of your knotting as shown in the video.
  6. Use a jump ring to attach one ribbon crimp to one side of a magnetic clasp. Repeat with the other side to finish attaching your clasp.
  7. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly before wearing or opening your bracelet.
