How to Make a Knotted Bracelet

by Claudia Trottier

This bracelet is quite simple once you've got the hang of it. I made several, each one with a different colour combination. Mix and match however you like. Hope you'll enjoy!


  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun/Super Glue
  • Ruler
  • 2 Colours of Yarn
  • Flat Surface/Clipboard
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Grab supplies

    Step 2

    Measure your two colours of yarn and make sure they are, each, 2 feet long (One loop on a 12 inch ruler.)

    Step 3

    Choose which colour is going to be on the outside. In my bracelet, the blue is going on the outside so I am measuring it at 3 feet (Two loops on a 1 foot ruler.) This is the base yarn.

    Step 4

    Tie your two (2ft Yarn Pieces) together.*Sorry for the blur!*

    Step 5

    Then dab some glue on the knot and let it dry.*Again sorry for the blur!*

    Step 6

    Fold your base (4ft) yarn in half. Tape the looped end down or attach it to your clipboard and then tape the other end down.

    Step 7

    Once your knotted yarn has dried, trim off the extra on the top. After that, put it in between your base yarn.

    Step 8

    Green = Inside Portion(1)-Blue = Outside Portion(2). You will always be working with the inside yarn first. Loop 1 creating a C form.

    Step 9

    Loop 2 in a C form, over lapping 1.

    Step 10

    Here is the video on the next steps. If you cannot see what I'm doing, continue. I will have pictures showing you.

    Step 11

    Loop 1.*Remember, you're always starting with 1 first*

    Step 12

    Loop 2

    Step 13

    Put 2 under the base yarn and into loop 1. Look closely. *Sorry for the blur*

    Step 14

    Pull both strings.

    Step 15

    You should get this knot. (This is actually 2 knots. The first knot I did in the video.)

    Step 16

    This is how 10 knots look.

    Step 17

    Video of the process. You might be overwhelmed on how quick I'm doing it. Don't worry, it just takes practice. I failed the first time I made one of these.

    Step 18

    Once you have made it as long as you want it (Your wrist length) glue the last knot.

    Step 19

    Trim off the extra yarn and tie a knot in the remaining base yarn.

    Step 20

    Glue that too.

    Step 21

    Trim off that extra base yarn and this should be the final product. To attach to your wrist, pull the bottom notch/knot through the loop at the top.

    Step 22

    And that's it! You now have a bracelet you can show off to your friends :) Or make some more for them.
