Retired - Watermelon Macrame Bracelet

PROJECT B2035
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Are you ready for a summer by the pool? This fun and easy macrame bracelet will put you in the mood for pool parties, fun in the sun and, of course, watermelon!
Instructions
To make this bracelet, watch How to Make a Knotted Waxed Linen Wrap Bracelet (Beads on the outside). This video will walk you through the entire process, with a few changes.
  1. Begin by cutting two 3' lengths and two 20" lengths of neon green super-lon cord.
  2. Tie all four strands into an overhand knot, as shown in the video.
  3. Make 6 square knots, as demonstrated in this video: Macrame Square Knots.
  4. Now thread one 6/0 pink bead onto the two center strands and push it all the way up to the last square knot.
  5. Onto each outside cord add three 8/0 green beads. Slide them all the way up.
  6. Make 6 square knots with the outside strands. Repeat this process to make 11 more "flowers"
  7. When you finish your last flower, make 6 square knots.
  8. To finish this knotting, follow the instructions as demonstrated in the first video. Note: When you make the knots, add a small dab of E6000 to secure the knot.
  9. When you make the loop of half hitch knots, you will need to make it large enough to fit the clasp.
  10. Move to the beginning side of your macrame bracelet. Un-tie the knot and tie off the outside cords, use E6000 to secure the knot.
  11. Thread on the toggle bar to one of the center cords. Tie on the bar using the technique shown in the video. Again, use a dab of E6000 to secure your knots.
