Morex Neon Twisted Bracelet

Express yourself! This bright neon bracelet is very easy to make! This Morex ribbon project is based on the same lanyard technique used in camp programs for years but uses a different size grosgrain ribbon. The finished project is very expandable, fits many wrist sizes and can be tweaked to use the recipient's favorite colors.

Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Create four lengths of ribbon of two yards each. Overlap the centers to create a woven square. Secure the ribbons by hand-tacking them with a needle and thread, or adding a drop of glue where each ribbon overlaps.
  • 2
    In this project, the Neon Tangerine ribbon will be ribbon A, the Neon Fuschia ribbon will be ribbon B, the Island Blue ribbon will be ribbon C and the Neon Zebra Key Lime ribbon will be ribbon D. Working in a counter-clockwise direction, fold the ribbons over one another. Begin with A over D (Neon Tangerine over Neon Zebra Key Lime).
  • 3
    Then fold B over A (Neon Fuschia over Neon Tangerine).
  • 4
    Fold C over A (Island Blue over Neon Tangerine).
  • 5
    Fold D over C (Neon Zebra Key Lime over Island Blue) and under the loop formed by A. Tighten up the ribbons after each round of weaving.
  • 6
    Reverse the pattern and work in a clockwise direction to fold D over A, C over D, B over D, then A over B and through the loop formed by D. This returns the ribbons to their original positions.
  • 7
    Repeat from the beginning, working alternately in counterclockwise and clockwise rounds until the braid measures 3-1/2 inch.
  • 8
    Returning to the starting point where the ribbons were first overlapped, weave the other four ribbon ends in the same pattern for 3-1/2 inch. The finished length of the braid should be seven inch. To secure the ribbons at both ends, sew a small cross stitch through each of the four end squares, and cut the ribbon close to the weaving.
  • 9
    Give the braid a full twist and butt the two ends together and slipstitch to hold.
  • 10
    For the finished twisted look, twist the ends a few times before tying off.
  • 11
    Trim any excess.
