Friendship Bracelets

OneStopCraft & JustKeepOnCrafting have an "anything goes" challenge & CreativeCraft's challenge is "three"

Well here's 3 photos of the steps to make an "Incredibly Quick & Easiest ever!" friendship bracelet.

You will need 3 lengths of 3 different coloured embroidery threads. Cut them 60cm long - for most people this should be long enough. Fold the 3 lengths in half and make a slip knot. It makes life easier if you then clip this to something so you have some tension to work against.

Spread the 3 colours so it looks like A B C C B A

Then bring the outermost left strand into the middle (B C A C B A)

Then bring the outermost right strand into the middle crossing over its same coloured counterpart (B C A A C B)

Continue until you have a "chevron" section that is long enough to wrap around your wrist.


Now you need to make 2 end ties to secure through the slip knot to enable you to tie the bracelet around your wrist.

Divide the 6 threads in half, with 3 colours in each half. A B C and A B C.

Plait the 3 strands for each section.

Le voila! Gift the finished bracelet to a friend!
