In for some fashion jewelry? Make yourself and your friends a couple of bracelets.
Make great gifts.
Choose Right Size Bracelet for Your Wrist
Tip: when using stretchy material such as recycled fabric, elastic cord, t-shirt yarn, or knitted i-cord, be sure to make it slightly tighter than you’d like it to be, as the material will stretch over time making your bracelet bigger / too big.
In contrast, when using pure wool roven for this Turk head knot bracelet, be sure to make it quite a bit larger than you’d like it to eventually be, as the material will shrink over time, and become more felted.
The 1,2,3 Quick How-to
1. Loop cord twice around a block / tube the size of your wrist.
2. For 3rd loop, twist existing 2 cord strands once and slide 3rd strand in between. (see image)
3. Repeat till finished 2 full rounds and the knot has 2 strings on either side of the forming V pattern.
Really easy to make.
