very little time and effort. So it's a great
beginner's project. In the example, I used
three colors for instruction purposes. All
you need to make this bracelet design is two

Should you decide to use this material, make sure
you do not pass the pins through it, since it's
delicate. Instead, leanthe
pins over the cord, or use tape.
1: Cut two cords, each at least 72
inches long (one of each color). Cut 1
holding cord, 12 - 18 inches long.
Prepare the ends of the holding cord with glue.
The two working cords can be prepared any way you
cords vertically, centering them by
matching the ends. The holding cord
should rest between the two working cords.
Place a piece of tape across the cords to
mark the center.
2: Use the working cord on
to make a Half Hitch in a clockwise
direction. Tie it around both
of the other cords.
A Half Hitch is tied by passing over
- under the cords holding the
knot. As you pull the end to the
side, pass it over
the working cord.
3: Tighten the first knot
so it rests against the tape at the
center. Then tie another Half
Hitch with the same cord.

Half Hitch (DHH).
4: Switch to the left
working cord. Tie the next Half

snugly around the bead.
7: Tie a DHH with
each color, and then repeat, for a total
of 4 DHH. Add another bead, and then
repeat this process. Continue on in
the same manner.
As you progress, keep the knots as flat as
possible. Stop when the Beaded Hitch
Bracelet is HALF
the size you want. So for an 8-inch
bracelet, stop at 4 inches.
8: Before you tighten the
last DHH in the first half of the
bracelet, apply glueunder it, so the knot will be
attached to the holding cord. Wait
until it dries, then cut off the holding
