Here are some of the works-in-progress:
|Leah's chevron pattern|
|Anna's variation of the chevron|
We found some new designs on Pinterest we wanted to try out -- the first we've ever done with this type of chart for direction. I think we did okay with them.
I leave about two inches of string on either side of the knotted pattern, and tie a good overhand knot at each end...
Line them up opposite each other...
Then I take a shorter thread (Like eight/nine inches is usually enough) and tie cobra knotting around both sections to fasten them together.
Four or so repeats is normally sufficient. Then, I take both ends of this string to one side, tie a tight overhand knot to secure the clasp, and clip the leftovers away.
It's probably not the prettiest way to finish one of these bracelets, but it's more fun to wear when you can adjust it, and this is the best way I know how. :)
Have a wonderful week!
