Project Instructions

  • 1
    Follow the basic instructions for making a Fishtail pattern, with the following changes.
  • 2
    For the first 15 bands, choose one color side of the band to have facing you. For the sample shown, the Black half of the band is facing toward you.
  • 3
    For the next 15 bands of the bracelet, place the bands on the nails so White is to the right and Black is to the left.
  • 4
    Have the bands face so the White half is facing you for the next 15 bands.
  • 5
    Repeat for the next 15 so the Black half is to the right and White half is to the left (the opposite of Step 3). Repeat Steps 2-5 as needed until the desired length is reached. For the sample shown, there were 6 sets of 15 made.

    You will see how it looks as if the Black or White is swirling in a pattern…change up the number of bands to see what other type of design you can create! Add on a button or stretch band clip to finish.
