How to prep your strings for knotting, plus our favorite simple way to finish FBs for easy on-and-off!
Jump to section:
When making a standard size bracelet, cut yarn strands to 36".
Hold all strands together and tie a single knot 3" from the end. Tape down top of string with washi tape or pin knot to fabric with a safety pin.
Knot your bracelet until it's long enough to fit around your wrist.
Braid strands together, about 2.5". Knot the end of the braid and trim off excess.
Now for the other end: undo knot and braid strands together, about 2.5" or the same length as the braid at the other end. Finish braid with a knot and trim off excess.
Now your bracelet is easily removable for the shower, gym, sleep, pool, etc! Removing your bracelet when getting wet, sweaty or dirty will ensure the colors last and you can enjoy your bracelet for a long time!
