Candy Stripe, And Chinese Staircase Friendship Bracelets


Ok guys this is my first post with pictures so I hope you like it

Today I’m going to teach you how to make a few bracelets

Knots used:



and forward-backward

First a few needs:

Embroidery Floss Or Yarn












My floss collection from Bethi Lewis










A Clipboard or pillow and safety pin

Nickel sized buttons

And a little time

1 of these can use the backward knot

if you don’t know the backward knot go here


Candy Stripe

Now you will need to know at least the forward knot for this bracelet

Lets get started









You will need at least THREE 2 Foot strands of Your floss or yarn and fold them in half and make a slipknot at the top I will explain why later

Arrange your colors in what ever order suits you

now pick up your first strand on the left

then you will need to do forward knots all down the strings with that strand

and continue doing that till long enough

And yes my clipboard is ugly!








Chinese staircase

This is the easiest of all Bracelets

You will need at least TWO 2 foot strands of floss








Fold in half and tie in slip knot

and grab 3 of the strands in your left hand








then grab the other one and start making forward knots









here’s what it looks like somewhat









Now do that until long enough

Now time to explain the folding and knotting

this is where the buttons come in

when long enough


instead thread them through the button hole do a backward0forward knot and slip it in to the slip knot at the top

TA-DA! a clasp for you bracelet

I hope you Enjoyed this pattern
