Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Fold the strings in half to end up with eight 32" long strands.
Tie a knot about an inch from the top to for a loop.
Step 2:
Clip the loop to a clipboard or notebook.
Step 3:
Separate the strands and lay them out in the order shown in the picture.
  Step 4:
Working from the left, tie an over/under double knot with string number 1 onto strings 2, 3, & 4, working left to right. It's important to remember to tie double knots.
Step 5:
Next, take string number 1 from the far right side and work towards the middle- tying double-knots right to left on strings 2, 3, and 4. You should end up with both number 1 strands in the middle.
  Step 6:
Tie the two middle strands (number 1) together and pull the knots tight.
Step 7:
Repeat steps 4-6, making sure to always start with the outermost strings and work towards the middle. Keep going until the bracelet is as long as you'd like.
Step 8:
Tie a knot at the end and leave a 1-1.5" tail. At this point you can either tie the bracelet around your wrist by knotting the ends around the loop on the other end of the bracelet, or you can tie a button or a charm to the end, and slide it through the hoop.
Step 9:
*Optional* Using a needle & thread, I sewed on a piece of rhinestone chain to the bracelet.
