Friendship bracelet instructions – how to make a chevron friendship bracelet DIY27

Prepare the Materials: No.72 Dark blue cord 4 meters No.72 Pink cord 2 meters
Others: Scissor, Measuring tapes

Step1:

Cut the cords about 1meters for each color. You need at least 6 strands of cord (3 on each side). Tie them together by using an overhand knot and tape it to your work surface.

Step2:

Starting with the outer-right cord, tie a backward knot make a ninety degree angle with the tying cord over the top of the cord you are tying it to. Note: Make the same knot twice on the adjacent cord.

Step3: Loop it under and back through the opening. Pull up and to the left to tighten (remember to make two knots on each cord).

Step4:

Once you have knotted the outer right cord to the one next to it, do the same to the next cord closer to the middle.

Step5: Continue knotting towards the left, until the outermost cord has carried over to the middle. This is one half of the chevron pattern.

Step6: Now pick up the outermost cord on the left side (show here in dark blue) and make a forward knot by creating a 4-shape over the 2nd cord.

Step7: Then loop it under and back through the opening. Don’t forget to knot twice over each cord!

Step8:

Once you have knotted the outer left cord to the one next to it, do the same to the next cord closer to the middle.

Step9:

Continue knotting towards the right until the outermost cord reaches the middle. Tie a forward knot with the two middle strands to connect the two halves. The first chevron row is complete! Note: If you have done everything correctly up to this point, the strands you are tying together in the middle will be the same color.

Step10: Continue this pattern until reach your desired length.

Step11:

Finish it with an overhand knot.
