Cut your hemp. Cut 2 long pieces of hemp about 5 feet long. Match the ends up and
fold both pieces in half. Tie a knot at the fold.
Stabilize one end. It helps to tape the loop left from the knot onto a table or safety pin
to a chair or the knee of your jeans. This will give you some leverage as you create the
pattern of knots in the bracelet.
Separate the strands. You should have four strands of hemp. For this type of knot,
the two center strands will remain together, while the outer strands will be moving
Create a loop. Take the strand on the left and cross it across the two middle strands
to create a "4" shape.
Tie the first knot. Take the strand on the right and cross it over the tail end of the first
strand from the left. Then, pull the strand over and under, up through the loop in the "4"
that was created.

Tighten the knot Pull on strands 1 and 4 to tighten the knot. Make sure that all
your knots are of an even tightness throughout the bracelet to create an level pattern.
Tie a knot on the other side. Use the same method as explained above to tie a
knot starting on the right instead of the left. Each knot should move from the leftmost
strand to the rightmost strand to create a flat (rather than a spiral) bracelet.
Continue the pattern. Tie knots back and forth until it reaches a point long enough to
wrap around the entirety of your wrist.
Tie off the ends. When you reach your stopping point, tie a basic knot at the end of
the bracelet. Cut off any excess hemp, and use the knot and the loop on the opposite
end to secure the bracelet to your wrist. Enjoy!
Choose your supplies. To create a beaded bracelet, you will need natural or dyed
hemp and beads of your choice. Any kind of bead will work as long as it has a hole
that fits the hemp strands, but seed beads are the best for this project.
Cut your hemp. You will need three strands of hemp cut at about 16 inches long
each. The strands will be braided together, so the finished bracelet wont be nearly so
Tie off one end. Hold the three strings together so that they are even, and tie them off
on one end with about 2 inches of the strands on one end of the knot. This will be used
to attach the bracelet to your wrist when it is finished.
Begin braiding. Do a classic braid beginning at the knot. Spread the three strands
out, and then cross the right strand over the center. Then, cross the left strand over the
center piece.
Continue braiding. Continue the pattern of adding the right strand over the left, and
then the left over the right, until you have reached of the way across the desired

length of your bracelet.
Add the beads. After you cross the right strand to the center, slide on a bead and
then cross the left strand over it. Do the same again, crossing the right strand, adding
a single bead, and then crossing the left strand, until youve completed another of the
Finish your braiding. After adding enough beads, go back to regular braiding until
youve finished the final of the bracelet. Tie a knot and cut off the excess excess
hemp about 2 inches from the knot.
Wear your finished bracelet! Make several bracelets and stack them for a
bohemian feel, or wear a single bracelet just for fun. Use the loose ends of the string
to tie a knot around your wrist or ankle, and enjoy!
Cut your hemp. A spiral bracelet will require four pieces of hemp. Measure your
wrist, and then cut two pieces of hemp that are 3x the length of your wrist. Make the
other two pieces of hemp 5x the length of your wrist.
Tie the strands together. Lay all four pieces of hemp out on a table so that the two
long pieces are on the outside while the two shorter pieces are in the middle. Tie a
knot on one end, keeping them in this fashion. Leave a bit of extra string on the end to use
to secure the bracelet to your wrist when you are finished.
Make a loop. Take the long piece on the right and fold the end over the center two
pieces, forming a D shape.
Tie the first knot. Take the long piece on the left, cross it over the tail of the piece
from the right, and then bring it through the loop that was formed. This should create a
knot around the two center strings. You will only be using the long, outer two pieces of hemp
to do the knot-tying.
Continue the pattern. Working from the right side only, continue making a loop,
crossing the left string over and then under and through the loop. After a few knots you
will begin to notice a spiral in your bracelet; twist it back to keep it in line as you work.

Finish the bracelet. When enough knots have been tied to create a spiral long
enough to wrap around your wrist, tie a knot at the end and cut the excess pieces off.
