How to make a heart friendship bracelet 💜
Another "Looks-complicated-but-easy" bracelet! I've broken down the steps so it's easy to understand. You can whip up one or two of these once you've memorised the steps!
I'm sorry for the bad lighting as I'm currently making this! (When I make a bracelet, sometimes I make a guide) If you don't understand a step, don't hesitate to ask. ✌
You will need 2 colours of embroidery floss.
Cut 4 strings for each colour. Should be total of 8 strings.
Lay out your strings as 1212--2121. (Mirrored) HINT: The colour of the 1st string will be the colour of the heart!
Grab the first 4 leftmost strings. With the first string (in this case, purple), make a forward knot over the next string (itc, white). Repeat with the other strings.
Should look like this. Set these strings aside and grab the other 4 (rightmost) strings.
Make a left knot or a backward 4 with the first string on the right (purple) over the next string (white) Do this to the other 3 strings.
The two same colour strings should ALWAYS be in the middle.
Join the two with a forward knot.
Repeat with the second colour.
Join the middle with a 4ward knot.
Grab the first 2 leftmost strings.
Make a backward 4 knot with the second string (white) over the first string (purple).
Grab the 7th and last string, but this time make a 4ward knot with the 7th str. (White) over the last str. (Purple).
Set the 1st and last string aside, and gather the 3 leftmost strings. Make forward knots with the 1st string over the next 2 strings.
Should look like this.
Do the same to the 3 rightmost strings, but this time do backward 4 knots.
Join the middle 2 again.
Grab the first 2 again and make a backward knot.
Grab the 7th and 8th and do a 4ward knot.
Time to fill in the heart! Set aside the 1st and last string again. Grab the 3 strings and make 4ward knots. Should look like ^^
Do the same to the rightmost strings (make backward knots) and join the middle. Then gather all strings again.
Make the first half of the heart by making forward knots with the first 3 strings.
Make the other half by making backward knots with the 3 strings on the right.
Join with a 4ward knot!
And that's the first heart! 💜 To make the next heart.... ->
Make a normal chevron row...
Repeat steps 12-14 (backward knot with the first 2 and forward knot with the 7th and last string) • Fill it in by making tiny chevron..
Repeat steps 12-14 and fill it in again...
Make the first and second half of the heart and join the middle with a 4ward knot!
Repeat until desired length. Thanks for viewing my guide ✌
