Step 1

Measure and cut one 72" [182.8 cm] length of each of the following cord colors: black, purple, white, lime and orange (or colors of choice), for a total of five 72" [182.8 cm] lengths.
TIP: This measurement is based on a 7" [17.7 cm] wrist. Adjust lengths of floss cord as needed.

Step 2

Gather cords together and align them so they are even. Fold them in half and tie an overhand knot about ½" [1.2 cm] from the fold. Tape the floss to your working space, above the knot.

Step 3

Now, separate the cords so each color is together, then arrange them so they are in order that you would like your stripes.
TIP: Mentally label your cords, from left to right, as A, B, C, D and E. For the example shown, black (A), purple (B), white (C), lime (D) and orange (E).

Step 4

To start the knotting process, place the A (black) cords perpendicular over the B (purple) cords, creating a “4” shape. Next, wrap the A cord ends under the B cords and thread through the loop of the “4” shape and pull the ends so the knot moves up to the top. Repeat for a second knot. The A cords are now all the way over to the right.

Step 5

Repeat Step 4 with the B cords. Work them across all colors.

Step 6

Continue this pattern until you reach about 1½" [3.8 cm] of knots. Tie an overhand knot, slide on a glow-in-the-dark pony bead and tie another overhand knot.

Step 7

Thread “BOO” onto the two white cords and “TIFUL” on the two black cords. Tie another overhand knot about 2" [5 cm] from the last knot.

Step 8

Add another glow-in-the-dark pony bead and tie another overhand knot. Start your knotted stripes again for another 1½" [3.8 cm].

Step 9

Tie an overhand knot, thread on two glow-in-the-dark pony beads and yet another overhand knot. Trim ends about 2" [5 cm] past the last knot.

Step 10

To wear, slide the last knot through the loop at the other end.

Step 11

If desired, cut a 15" [38.1 cm] piece of thread from each of the same colors, thread glow-in-the-dark pony beads and tie overhand knots on each side of the beads. Tim ends to about 2½" [6.3 cm] on each side then tie onto your wrist.
