  • How to braid a friendship bracelet. Bracelets For Everybody! - Step 1
    Step 1

    First,chose your colors.
    i chose baby pink and orange.

    Cut about 2 meters of each (some extra is always good)

    then fold then in half

    Step 2

    Take the folded parts and put one below the other and then clip them on something or just put something heavy on top of them

    you have to have a loop on one side of your bracelet but you don't want it to big or to small

    Step 3

    take the first two

    put the orange on top of the pink crating a 4

    then put the orange thread under the pink one creating a loop like shown in the pic

  • Step 5

    hold the pink thread tight and straight and pull the orange thread to the right

    Step 6

    repeat step 3 to 5

    orange on top of pink crating 4,orange underneath the pink,pull to the right

    and you just made your first knot!
    congratulate yourself ^-^

    (sorry for the blurry pic)

    Step 7

    now take the other two threads

    same procedure just swamped colors

    put the pink on top of orange to create a 4

  • How to braid a friendship bracelet. Bracelets For Everybody! - Step 11
    Step 11

    now take the middle threads (they should be the same color)

    put the left one on top of the right

  • How to braid a friendship bracelet. Bracelets For Everybody! - Step 12
    Step 12

    make a loop (just like you did before with other knots,this one is no different)

    and pull the left thread to the right

  • How to braid a friendship bracelet. Bracelets For Everybody! - Step 13
    Step 13

    and there is your first row! YAY! ^-^
    congratulate yourself again!

    now repeat this over and over again until you reach your desired length

  • How to braid a friendship bracelet. Bracelets For Everybody! - Step 14
    Step 14

    it's basically one simple knot repeating

    *the left thread goes on top of the right one (making it look like a 4)

    *pull the left thread underneath the right one making a loop

    *pull the left thread to the right

    with practice it gets a lot easier and you'll figure out how to make different patterns not just stripes!

    when you finish the bracelet just pull the rest of the threads trough the loop you made at the top of the bracelet and tie a knot
