Step 1: Cut
1 cord, at least 72 inches long (2 yards).
Prepare the ends with glue
and allow it to dry before tying the first knot in
the Loop Weave bracelet.
Secure the center
of the cord to your project board.
Make a long
bight with theright half,
so the fold is 3 to 4 inches below the
Make sure it passes over
the left half of the cord as you bring it
up to the top left area.
2: Make a bight with the
left half, passing over
the two segments of the right cord.
Mentally label the left and right portions
of each bight (see next photo).
3: Flip the left side of
each bight over the right side, creating
two long loops.
The crossing point should be arranged
close to thetop
of the knot.
4: Cross the right loop
over the left loop. Curve
them both slightly so they are tilted as
they are wide
and open, so you can see the

now on the right,

6: Weave the left

Tighten the knot in
the order the loops were made, starting
at the center. It should be about 1
inch in size when you are done.
Important:Make all the knots in
the Loop Weave bracelet as small as possible,
so the design has a delicate appearance.
Make sure the first loop (top center) is
the appropriate size for the button used
for the clasp.
Pass both ends through a bead in opposite
directions. This will
help prevent the knot from being pulled
out of shape.
steps 1 - 7 to make the
next knot. After the second one is
tightened, pull on the four loops at the
corners of the first knot as shown.
The central portion will tighten as you do
this. The loops can be any size.
Important: Pull on
the four loops as you progress, rather than wait
until the Loop Weave bracelet is finished.
Make sure you tie one knot, then pull the loops
on the knot you previously made.
Steps 1 - 8 until the
bracelet is the size you need.
Pass both ends through the shank in the
button, in opposite directions, as you did
the beads. Make sure it fits the
loop at the other end.
Apply glue on
the shank. Tie an Overhand
knot with the two ends, tightening it
firmly, so it rests on the glue.
10: Turn over the Loop Weave
Bracelet so you work in the back.
Tie a second Overhand knot, applying the glue
close to the shank. When the glue is dry,
cut off the extra material.
(OPTIONAL) You can give all the loops
another tug, tightening the center of each knot
even more. When they are as you want, apply
a thin coat of glue to the back
center portion of the knots. The
glue will help prevent the knots from
loosening as the bracelet is worn. Glue will darken
so keep that in mind if you decide to use
it in this manner.
