Step 1
Feeling nostalgic? Try making this Chevron Friendship Bracelet! It’s a throwback to your youth the you can do with your friends or your kids!   Step 1 Measure and cut 72" from four colors of floss. Step 2 To make your looped starting end, gather the strands together and align the ends so they are all even; then fold the strands in half. Tie an overhand knot with all of the strands together, about 1" below the fold. Step 3 Tape the loop to your working space, above the knot. Step 4 Assign each color a letter to help keep them organized when following instructions. TIP: In the featured project, the colors are: light pink (A), tan (B), hot pink (C) and white (D). Step 5 Separate the strands and lay them out in front of you in the following order, from left to right: A, B, C, D, D, C, B, A. Step 6 With the A and B strands on the left, make a forward overhand knot with A over B. Repeat for a second knot. TIP: To make a forward overhand knot, take you’re a strand and fold half of it over the B strand to resemble the number four. Then, bend the section of the A strand that is extending past the B strand around the B strand and through the opening of the four formation. Pull tight, sliding the knot up to the top. Step 7 Repeat Step 6 with the A strand over the C strand and again with the A strand over the D strand. Remember to knot each one twice. TIP: The A strand will naturally mover across the row as you make the forward knots. Step 8 Now, repeat Steps 6-7 with the A strand on the right side, but this time, make backward overhand knots. TIP: To make a backward overhand knot, just make a forward overhand knot in reverse. Step 9 Once you have both A strands in the center, make two backward overhand knots to join the two sides, as well as, make the point of your chevron. Step 10 Repeat Steps 6-9 with the B strand. Continue this pattern until you reach the desired length. Step 11 At the end of your chevron knots, tie a double overhand knot with all excess strands. Slide on two pony beads and tie a second double overhand knot. Trim excess floss.
