Friendship bracelet tutorial by llifi-kei Friendship bracelet tutorial by llifi-kei

:boogie: EDIT: If you want to learn more about friendship bracelets and find literally THOUSANDS more patterns to try out, check out this site: [link] :boogie:
Thanks to both =BlackDelphin and ~evil-pumpkin for independently linking me to this site. =D

Edit 2: This tutorial is now available for translation with ~GlobalTutorials! If you're interested in helping to translate tutorials (this one or otherwise) into other languages, please do check them out. =D


Some of the friendship bracelets I made years ago: [link]

Been meaning to make one of these for a long time, but never had the sudden, random irrational burst of motivation to do so till today. This is dedicated to =BlackDelphin, whose recent questions about making friendship bracelets made me decide to stop being lazy and finally make this, and also to ~Tasah, who I decided to make the friendship bracelet for. =D

It took around 2 hours to make this bracelet (whilst taking tons of photos inbetween, etc.) and another 3 hours to write/assemble the tutorial.

If you have any questions or get stuck, feel free to ask, and I will at least try to help you. =)


Tips from others
If there's anything else you'd like to add, feel free to let me know by commenting here =D

~Poki-grzyb: - i think that you should pull all the time hard or light. u shouldn't pull hard in one time, then pull lighet, because u see what happens - in the beginning of your bracelets knots are made by light pulling and there are lot of area between them, but in the end of bracelet u pulled harder and there are no space. only light pulling or only hard :D remember :D

~alena-light: I could only share one hint - I use strands with twice length and just fold them in half. In this case loop looks more accurate (^

I just have a question about materials: I LOVE making things, especially friendship bracelets, and I am always out of string. What kind/brand of embroidery floss do you use that produces larger knots?
