  • Step 1

    Cut the strands and knot them together at the middle, leaving a loop big enough to fit the button through.
    Grab the longer cord and wrap it around the others. Once the bracelet reaches almost half the size of your wrist, secure the cord, by tying it around.
    To make the net, divide the cords in pairs and make a knot on each of the two, now separate the cords again, take one cord from one knot, another cord from the other and tie those two together.
    Do the same thing again on the second pair of cords, then take the last two and tie those together as well.

    Do another row of knots with the same technique the 3 rows were enough for me, but just make another row or two if you have a bigger stone.
    Find the longer cord again use it to secure the strands together and wrap it around until the length on this side of the bracelet matches the other.
