Satin Cord (2 or 3 different colors)
Lighter (to burn the ends of cord)
I followed the Stitched Solomon Bar video tutorial (below) from Tying It All together's Youtube Channel. There are so many unique knot tutorials that I could make bracelets all day! You can also view all the knots on the Knot Gallery (clicking on the picture will lead you to a link for the video.)
For the base (pale green in top bracelet) you need double the length of your wrist + extra for knotting off the end or attaching the bead. For the knotting cord (dark green in top bracelet) I used approx. 40 inches, didn't actually measure (my wrist is 6inches in length). One thing to note is that the videos do not include the length of cord/rope needed so you will have to use trial and error.
To make the two toned look of the bottom bracelet use a knotting cord made of two different colored cords fused together (I used dark and light blue, and attached using some Instant Krazy Glue). Here's a close up:
A simple and unique friendship bracelet = LOVE. Can't wait to experiment with different cords/ropes and try different knots. More bracelet DIYs to come!
