DIY Infinity Friendship Bracelet

{Guest Post from Amber}


Hello! I am Amber Cheung from the Learning Center of Pandahall and I am here to share with you how to make an infinity macrame bracelet, perfect for this Summer. A beautiful and easy to make friendship bracelet! 

If you are familiar with square knot technique, making this friendship bracelet is just a piece of cake. In this tutorial, you need use alternate square knots to create this yellow and lime infinity pattern.

Necessities for infinity friendship bracelet:
1mm yellow nylon thread

1mm lime nylon thread
6mm yellow acrylic beads
Scissors
Lighter




Procedure:

Step 1: Braid infinity pattern

1st, cut a pair of 80cm yellow threads, and leave 10cm tail of the yellow threads;

2nd, cut a pair of 1.5m lime threads and a piece of 1.5m yellow thread, fold them and make overhand knot;
3rd, sort the 8 strands into 2 groups, left’s yellow and right lime;
4th, do two pairs of square knots with leftmost yellow thread and rightmost lime thread;
5th, set aside the lime strands, and do 6 pairs of square knots with yellow strands;
6th, then set aside yellow strands and similarly do 6 pairs of square knots with lime strands;
7th, repeat from 4th to 6th, and continue this infinity pattern.



Step 2: Make adjustable closure
1st, don’t braid the final two pairs of square knots with leftmost and rightmost threads till the length is appropriate for bracelet;

2nd, make another overhand knot with all the strands;
3rd, leave a pair of yellow tails and cut off other threads;
4th, overlap the yellow tails, pick another piece of lime thread and do several square knots;
5th, cut off excess lime threads;
6th, slide yellow acrylic beads onto tails, make overhand knots and cut off excess ends.



Tada! This infinity friendship bracelet pattern is done.
