See the updated version of this project here!
This was one of my favorite crafts to make because it is really relaxing just like knitting and crocheting! This is just like making one of those paracord bracelets, except with yarn. I got some neato small yarn just for making these! Here is what you will be making:

These are straight, but you don't need an expert to tell you that making them into a bracelet is as easy as knotting the two ends together (which is what you do..). So the first step is to get some scissors, and yarn. There are some options, for example... if you want two colors you cut 2ft. strands of yarn and tie them together, but if you want one color you cut 4ft. of one color. For the base, cut one 3 foot strip of yarn in any color that you think coordinates with the yarn. You won't end up seeing this strip of yarn though.
This is my first color, it is two feet long...


Before you start make sure you knot your two colors together...

(my two colors layed out...)

Ok so now take your 3ft., 2ft., and other 2ft. strand and lay them out.

Put your knotted strand under the 3ft. strand. If you can see, I "folded" the 3ft. yarn. Now it is time to start knotting!
Fold right strand over.

Put left strand down.

Take left strand and put it under the middle strand and over the right one.
Pull both the right and left strands until it is snug on the middle strand.

After about 5 or 6 repeats you can start to see the pattern! Make it as small or as long as you want! Great for keychains or bracelets, headbands or maybe even belts! To end just tie the left and right strands together in a simple knot, and  the remaining middle strand into a loop, or connect them to the other loop to create a bracelet or headband.
Once you start to repeat you should start to see the "V" that is created every two repeats.

Ok guys hope you liked this as much as I do! I can't wait to make more!!! Thanks,

    i have tried mine is twisting what am i doing wrong?

    1. you need to make one loop on each side instead on keeping the same pattern with one loop. it shoul be left right then left right. i hope that helps... :-)

      you need to switch sides you make the four with one time bring the right side over and the left side through and the second time cross the left side and bring the right way through..

  4. What re you twisting? If it is the main chord in the middle then yes, you should keep that in one position during the whole thing. If not please tell me and I'll try to help! :)

    This is a macrame bracelet if it twists you are making what is called a granny knot, which means that you are repeatedly doing 1/2 of a square knot. To make a square knot the first string over the center changes from left to right with each half of the knot. Google it.

  7. i put your button and link to this craft on my blog! Please check it out!

    Within a best case, this therapy combines different strokes, like gliding, kneading, or cross friction strokes which help to reduce tension, improve circulation and try the fibers using the muscle tissue. It is always just one about the few things it is possible to expect whenever find a male sizegenetics. While it's customary for consumers to be nude while you could be being sizegeneticsd, it's actually your preference to use a modesty cover should you want. Another custom would be to use oils to moisten the skin and help the hands slide over your body as you get your gay sizegenetics. The sensual nature of all from the makes some people believe that a male sizegenetics is hedonism. The truth is, this it is component to a health regimen that helps overall well-being. An appointment to get a male sizegenetics should be a regular occurrence.
