PROJECT B2139
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Inspired by the savage nature of the wild, this unisex bracelet features Czech Glass Tooth Beads captured in tiny macrame square knots.
Instructions
These instructions will give you a bracelet that will fit a 6.75" wrist. To adjust the length, make the lengths of square knotting on each side longer or shorter respectively.
  1. Cut one length of Super-Lon cord 8 feet, and one that is 2 feet.
  2. You are ready to begin your bracelet. Please watch our video: How to Start Macrame Bracelets Using Three Cords. Fold the cord that is 8 feet long in half. Find the mid point and add the cord that is 2 feet on top.
  3. Tie an overhand knot, with all three strands, forming a loop.
  4. Add one wood bead to all three strands.
  5. Tie another overhand knot, as close to the wood bead as possible.
  6. Trim the shorter strand that is coming out the top.
  7. Now you are ready to begin your square knots. Use the two longer strands to make the square knots. Knot for 1 1/2".
  8. Add one tooth bead to the center strand. Make two more square knots. Repeat this step 8 more times. Make sure all of your tooth beads are facing the same way when you string them.Finish with another 1 1/2" of square knots.
  9. Bring all three strands together and move 1/4" from where the square knots ended.
  10. Tie an overhand knot.
  11. Add one wood bead to all three strands.
  12. Tie another overhand knot, as close to the wood bead as possible.
  13. Trim the ends of the cord to be even. Leaving a tail of 1/2".
