Hamsa Pastel Bracelet
Each side of the hand requires 4x 1m lengths of friendship bracelet thread. Choose any combination of colours that you wish.
Thread the cords through one of the threading holes, folding in half so you have 8 equal strands.
Use the friendship bracelet maker to separate out the eight strands into alternate colour strands.
Take the strand on the furthest left hand side and start knotting (this bracelet uses the most basic friendship bracelet knotting technique.
The left hand strand goes over the right hand strand, creating a ‘D’ shape loop. The thread is then pulled through this loop. This step is then repeated once to give you a complete knot.
Create a knot on each strand, going across until this strand now sits on the furthest right hand side.
Take the strand that is now on the furthest left hand side and do the same thing, knotting on each strand until it becomes the furthest right hand side.
Complete 24 rows of knotting and then finish of by creating a 4 strand plait that measures approx. 9cm. knot the end and trim any excess thread.
Repeat this whole process for the other side of the hand connector.
Use the two 4 strand plaits to tie the bracelet onto your wrist.
