Material: Six Stranded Embroidery Floss
You can use fewer colors by duplicating strands in the same color (OR) in order to make a larger bracelet you will need a larger pattern which utilizes more strings (which means more color) Here are some patterns:
Here's alternate patterns:
You will need 5 different colors cut 70 inches long and prepared in the usual fashion. (Fold them in half and making an overhand knot.)
Arrange Your Strings: 1 2 3 4 5 (middle) 5 4 3 2 1
Hint: Whichever strings are in the middle will be the first color to appear in your bracelet. Set them up accordingly and then follow the steps below.
1. 5L fk over 5R (Join Middle)
2. 5R 3fk & 1 fk/bk
3. 5L 3bk & 1 bk/fk
4. 5L fk over 5R (Join Middle)
5. 5L 1bk & 1bk/fk
6. 5R 1fk & 1fk/bk
7. L5 fk over R5 (Join Middle)
8. L4 1fk
9. R4 1bk — then join with old L4 (Join middle)
10. L2 1fk & 1fk/bk
11. R2 1bk * 1bk/fk
12. 1L 1fk/bk
13. 1R 1bk/fk
14. L3 2bk
15. R3 2fk
16. L5 3bk & 1bk/fk
17. R5 3fk & 1fk/bk
18. Repeat from step #2
■ To repeat the pattern just complete steps 1-7 the first time and 2-7 each time after that!
NOTE: This pattern can be made with more than 5 colors(strings) if you wish. The pattern would need some tweaking, though.
Creative Ideas: Try using Gradient styled floss for a tye-dye effect or even try a monochrome version. You can also use colors that are in the same color family for a fading effect. So what are you waiting for? Get knotting!
