Gather your five strings. Make each string a different color for full effect.
Grab your ruler and cut the strings the length that best fits your wrist size. Cut each string 55" for small wrist, 65" for medium wrist, and 75" for large wrist.
Fold the strings in half and tie a loop knot.
Set up you strings like this in a mirror image.
This is sort of like a chevron but working from the inside.
Join your two center strings together and tie your second intermost strings to the center.
Then tie your third intermost strings to the center and so on.
And at last the fifth.
Repeat your pattern over and over to your desired length.
It's good to work loosely to get more of a rounder leaf shape.
