Wind Dance Woven Bracelet Stack

About this design:

These are some great examples of ways to use Linhasita waxed cord. You can create so many layers and color patterns with this durable, water-resistant cord. I know these instructions have many steps but I assure you it is really simple.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

For the woven chevron bracelet you will need:

  • 6 colors of PE4 Linhasita cord
  • 6/0 starlight seed beads - I added another option below
  • Tierracast monstera button

For the braided bracelet you will need:

  • 3 colors of PE4 Linhasita cord
  • 2mm natural gray leather cord

For the wood round bracelet you will need:

  • 2 packs of 8mm wood beads

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  Step 1:
-Cut 72″ lengths of each of the six colors
-Fold the cord in half evenly so that you have 12 cords – there should be 2 of each color
-Twist the cords where the loop will be at the top, tie an overhand knot on the folded end.
-Make sure your loop is big enough for your clasp to fit through.
Step 2:
-Secure the loop onto a clipboard or tape it down.
-Arrange the strands in the color order you desire.
-The colors should be mirrored
Step 3:
-Start with the outermost left-hand string tie two forward knots on each of the strings going moving towards center.
-To create a forward knot make a “4” shape with the working string over the second string.
-Pull the working string under and up through. It is important to pull upwards.
-Do the forward knot twice on each cord
-Move to the next inward color
Step 4:
-For the other side, start with the outermost right-hand string tie two backward knots on each string moving towards center.
-Tie a backward knot by making a “P” shape with the working string over the second string.
-Pull the working string over and up through. It is important to pull upwards.
Step 5:
-When you get to the center finish off by tying the two same color cords together by using a backward knot.
  Step 6:
- Continue on by using the new left-hand string to make forward knots until you reach the middle.
-Use the new right-hand string make backward knots
Step 7:
-Each time you get to the center, tie one backwards knot with the same color cords,slide the gold seed bead on, do another backwards knot.
Step 8:
-Keep going until you've reached your desired bracelet length.
-Attach your button by using a overhand knot.
-Wrap half of the cord around the base of the button and then pull the cords down through the wrapped cord. Attach gold seed beads to the tail ends and knot
Step 9:
For the braided bracelet:

-Cut six 8" strands of each color
-Cut one 8" strand of leather cord
-Cut two 6" strands of one color of Linhasita cord
-Fold the strands in half and make 3 sections (you should have two colors in each section) one section shoud have the leather cord.
-Group your bracelet cords together at one end.
-Tie a knot with the 6" piece of cord on one side, wrap it around a few times then tie a knot on the back side of the knot you just created.
-Trim your ends
-I also burned the knot on the 6" piece slightly to make it more secure.
-Do the same on the other end of the bracelet.
-Finish this bracelet with a sliding square knot.
  Step 10:
For the wood bead bracelet:

-Cut one piece of cord 3" longer than your wrist measurement
-Slide the beads on
-Finish with a sliding square knot
