Step 1

Cut the cord to the length of the wrist plus 16 cm for the clasp and double it - we will fold it in half because we will be knotting on two strings.

We fold what we have in half and attach it to the board.

Step 1

Step 2

We cut two more cords in two different colours. Each of them is three times longer than the length of the string above (folded length).

We heat the lighter and melt the ends and glue them together quickly. 

Step 1

Step 3

We put the melted cords under the cords on which we will braid (leading). We tie it as easily as possible.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 4

We begin to knot. Put the cord on the right side inside out between the leading cords, as shown in the photo. It is very important that the cord is under the lead cord on the right and goes above the lead cord on the left.

Step 1

Step 5

Now put the cord on the left on the salmon cord in my case, then turn it under the salmon cord and go to the other side between the leading cords. It is important that the cord leading on the left is under, and on the right above, the cord that we are now threading. It's always best to follow the pictures if you don't understand something, including my "over" and "under". 

Step 1

Step 2

Step 6

Now we do the same as in the previous step, but we start from the left side.

So the cord on the left between the leading cords (important where under and where over - photo !!!). Cord on the right in salmon and under the cords to the loop and pull it - see photo.

These steps may seem complicated at first, but you'll get it right in no time and it'll be perfect.

Step 2

Step 3

Step 7

Repeat the pattern to the end in the same way.

We start once on the left and then on the right.

We start on the right. Put the cord on the right between the leading strings etc ...

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 8

And we start from the left ...

Step 1

Step 2

Step 9

And so it will answer the length of the bracelet. 

Remember that the clasp itself should be about 1 to 1.5 cm so the bracelet should be that much shorter.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 10

Finally, we will make one knot covering both leading ones at once.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 11

We make knots at the ends. It's nice that the ends are even, so cut off the excess cord.

You can melt the cords a bit or drip gently with glue so that the knots do not untie.

Step 1

Step 12

We will make the fastening with a flat knot.
