Step 1

Cut a length of thread measuring twice as long as your wrist measurment. Secure to a board or work surface.

Step 2

Cut a long length of thread and pass it under your first thread to its halfway point.
Start your macrame knotting approx. 3" from one end of your thread.

Step 3

Complete 3 square knots.
Thread a bead onto the centre cord and bring the two outer cords around the bead.
Complete 4 square knots.
Thread on another bead and bring the two outer cords around it. 

Repeat this until you have used 3 bicone beads and your cross bead.
You may wish to use more or less for a bigger or larger bracelet, but remember that macrame bracelets are adjustable in size.

Step 4

Complete 3 square knots after the last bead.
Knot, glue and trim the two outer cords leaving the centre cord.

Step 5

Take the 2 ends of the centre cords, lay them side by side and then do a macramé braid (approx. 6 or 7 square knots) for your sliding knot.
Secure the ends with a drop of glue, being careful not to glue the sliding knot to the centre cords running through it (otherwise it will not be able to slide and adjust). Try gently pulling the centre cords through the sliding knot while the glue dries.
Trim the ends so the sliding knot is neat.

Thread a bead onto each thread and knot to keep them in place.
