I freaking love chunky bracelets! And, this Sweet Sailors Knot Bracelet actually easier than it looks to make…honest!
Knotted Bracelet 1Grab your supplies…
Length of cord – at least 80cm
Scissors
Wide ribbon ends clamps & jewellery fastener
Jewellery pliers

First things first, you got to trim the length of cord into two equal parts.
Knotted Bracelet 2Fold both lengths of cord in half, take the first piece of folded piece of cord and create a loop by passing the centre fold over the tails.
Knotted Bracelet 3Take the second length of cord, and pass under the loop made in the first length of cord.
Knotted Bracelet 4Bring this folded end of the second cord over the folded end of the first cord and then under the tails of the first cord.
Knotted Bracelet 5To finish the knot, the folded end of the second cord needs to be passed over the loop made in the first cord, under the tails of the second cord and then back over the second part of the loop in the first cord.
Knotted Bracelet 6Pull up the the tails and the folded ends of the cord evenly on both sides to tighten the knot.
You with me? Let’s look again…

Knotted Bracelet 7Awesome! Now you got it!
Knotted Bracelet 8All that is left to do is trim the ends of cord to the required length and secure into wide ribbon ends with a pair of jewellery pliers and add your fastening and your bracelet is ready to rock!
Sweet – am I right?
This looks great made up in two different colours of cord, or made in to a necklace or even belt – I’m pretty sure the possibilities are endless!
