Four or more pieces of embroidery thread, each about two ft. long
Masking tape or a safety pin
Line up your thread so that the ends are even. Tie a knot about two
inches from the top of the bundle.
To make a thicker bracelet, use more than
four strands of thread.
Secure the knot to a flat surface with masking tape, or pin the knot
to your clothing, like on the knee of your pants.
Spread your threads out, and starting on the left, count them one through
four. Hold strand two tight as you take thread one and loop it around.
Pull the end of thread one up and through to make a small, tight knot.
Then make a second knot directly under the first. Go down the line,
and double-knot strand one around strands three and four.
with strand two
Use strand two to make double knots around the other threads.
Continue double-knotting with strands three and four, and repeat the
entire process until the bracelet is long enough to fit around a wrist
or an ankle.
Experiment making stripes of different widths
by knotting one strand more times and another strand fewer times.
Using all your thread, make a knot at the end of your bracelet, trim
the ends, and present your homemade gift to a friend.
