Handmade Jewelry with a Nautical Look
Your jewelry can not get much more trendy than with this wrist Turk Knot Bracelet. I personally love nautical jewelry as it goes so well with my blue-white stripe obsession! I have an anchor necklace, and steering wheel earrings, and a Turk Knot Bracelet like this just finishes the set so nicely. To accentuate the nautical look, you’ll have to use either cotton cord, or use an off-white yarn for this project.
Choose Right Size Bracelet for Your Wrist
Tip: Yes, materials matter. 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.
