  • How to make a braided cord bracelet. Classy Macrame Bracelets! - Step 1
    Step 1

    First cut out your cord in 2 pieces of 1m each and 2 pieces of 20 cm each.
    Let's start by making the "spiral" bracelet. Take your 20 cm piece and thread it through the one side of the connector. Next, take your 1m piece and and tie a knot in the middle. Now you have 2 cords one to the left, one to the right.

    Now on to the second method. For this method steps 1,2,3,4 are the same as the first one.
    The difference is that now you don't repeat the same step over and over! Instead, after tying the first knot, slide the left cord under middle cords and over right cord and right cord over middle cords and under left cord.
