Lesson: How to Make a Candy Stripe Friendship Bracelet
Comprised of all forwards knots, Candy Stripe is the ideal beginner friendship bracelet pattern.
Jump to section:
Cut as many strands of yarn as you'd like to 36” and tie them together 3” down. Separate strands in the order of the pattern you want to create. The more strands you incorporate, the wider your bracelet will be.
Working from the left to the right, tie a forwards knot by taking the left-most strand and bend it on top of its neighbor to the right, creating a “4” shape.
Wrap the tail of the left-most strand (pink) around its neighbor (coral) by going under it and pulling the pink tail out through the space between the strands.
Hold the interior strand (coral) straight and pull knot up towards the top knot, tightening to secure.
Repeat once more.
*Remember, each knot in a friendship bracelet consists of two knots.*
The pink strand will move to the right. Repeat the same process of tying two forwards knots around the next string (orange).
Repeat the process with the new left-most strand (coral), working your way across each strand of the bracelet until it makes its way to the right.
Continue until your bracelet is long enough to fit around your wrist. Finish your bracelet using the instructions here.
