Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut two pieces of Blue cord and one piece of Brown cord that are each approximately 39 inches long.
  • 2
    Knot all 3 cords at one end leaving a 5 inch tail that you will put in the top middle slot of macrame board, and put the other end of one Blue cord through the bottom middle slot of the macrame board. You will have one Brown and one Blue working cord on either side of the middle Blue cord.
  • 3
    Take the Blue working cord and put it over the middle cord (forming a D shape), pass it under the middle cord and back up through the looped D you just made and pull tight.
  • 4
    Using same Blue working cord, put it under the middle cord, again forming a D shape, bring it up over the middle cord, and through the looped D and pull tight.
  • 5
    Repeat steps 3 and 4 five more times.
  • 6
    Slide one bead up the Brown working cord.
  • 7
    Take Brown working cord and lay over middle cord. Wrap it around the middle cord, and bring it up through the loop then pull tightly until the knot is at the base of the last Blue knots you just made.
  • 8
    Take Brown cord and go under the middle cord forming a backwards D loop, bring it around the middle cord and through the backwards D loop and pull tight forming the same knot you just did with the Blue cord, but backwards.
  • 9
    Repeat steps 7 and 8 five more times.
  • 10
    Slide a bead up the blue working cord, and repeat steps 3-4 five times.
  • 11
    Continue alternating sides until you have placed 10 beads.
  • 12
    Tie off the remainder of the string in a knot so it holds the last bead in place.
  • 13
    Take the bracelet off of the macramé board. Affix a glue in clasp or use the remaining tail string to create a sliding clasp out of square knots.
