DIY Sweet Sailor Knot Bracelet
I freaking love chunky bracelets! And, this Sweet Sailors Knot Bracelet actually easier than it looks to make…honest!
Grab your supplies…
Length of cord – at least 80cm
Wide ribbon ends clamps & jewellery fastener
First things first, you got to trim the length of cord into two equal parts.
Fold 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.
Take the second length of cord, and pass under the loop made in the first length of cord.
Bring this folded end of the second cord over the folded end of the first cord and then under the tails of the first cord.
To 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.
Pull 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…
The white arrows show the direction and placement of the first piece of folded cord and the black arrows show the direction and placement of the second piece of folded cord.
You with me? Ok…how’s this…
Awesome! Now you got it!
All 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!
I’m pretty sure that I’ll be sporting one of these in a different colour every day this summer! Yay!
