Round Bracelet

 
Round Bracelet
 
 

Description:  This Round Bracelet looks very puzzling when you first see it, but is surprisingly easy to make.  You only need to know 2 decorative knots to make one of these unique Macrame bracelets.

The design has a smooth, rounded shape, and a very nice finished appearance.

You can use this Micro-Macrame design to make a choker style necklace, a belt, or even a dog collar, simply by making it longer.

Satin cord was used to make the holiday bracelet shown.

 
 
 
Supplies Needed: 
 
  • 1.5mm - 2mm Cord Material
  • Project Board and Pins
  • Tape
  • One Button (shank-style)
  • Household or Fabric Glue
 

 
Knots Used:
 
 

 

Step 1:  Use this formula to determine how long to cut the cords:

  • Finished Length of Bracelet (wrist measurement) x 12


Cut 2 cords, each the size you came up with. 

 

 
Cords Through Shank  

Slide both cords through the shank on the back of the button. Center them by matching the ends, and make sure they are crossed.

Mentally number the four segments, starting on the lower left.

 

 
Use Segment 1  

Step 2: Start the first Lanyard knot by moving segment 1 to the right, so it rests on top of segment 2.

 

 
Use Segment 2  

Step 3: Fold segment 2 upward, so it rests on top of segment 3.

Be sure not to disturb segment 1.

 
 
 
Use Segment 3  

Step 4:  Fold segment 3 to the left, so it passes over segment 4.

 

 
Use Segment 4   Step 5: Fold segment 4 downward, and pass it through the curved area of segment 1.

Make sure it goes in from the top (over - under).
 

 
First Knot Around Shank  

Step 6: Tighten the first Lanyard knot by pulling on all 4 ends gradually.

It should fit firmly around the shank of the button.

 

 

Design Tip: Note that the cords are in different positions now, as compared to when you started. This is important, so try not to rotate the cords in any way, as you tighten the first knot.


As you continue, make sure you always rotate counter-clockwise as you tie each knot.


Start with the segment on the lower left.  The spiral design will work out perfectly, as long as the ends switch places each time.

 

 
Next Knot   Step 7: Repeat steps 2 - 5, tying the second knot.

When you tighten it, make sure it rests on top of the first knot.
 

 
Knots Will Stack  

Step 8: Secure the Round Bracelet by passing a pin through the shank of the button, on an angle.

Tie several more Lanyard knots, until the bracelet is the size you need.

 

 
Overhand knot  

Step 9: To make a simple clasp for the Round Bracelet, tie an Overhand knot with all four ends.

As you tighten it, pull on one end to keep it loose, so you have a loop for the closure.
