In this video I’ll show you how to make this knotted cord bracelet from start to finish, including a simple sliding knot to make your bracelet an adjustable size that will fit just about anyone! You’ll also learn some great cord knotting tips and tricks – like how to prevent frayed ends while stringing and how to get your knots to land right where you want them to.
These knotted cord bracelets are a great casual style, and so much fun to make. I hope you’ll enjoy learning this technique and see how much fun you can have playing with different designs!

TOOLS AND SUPPLIES:
• *30 inches of waxed cord (one 24 inch piece and one 6 inch piece). I used this .8mm brown waxed cord. NOTE: in the video I misspoke and said ‘waxed irish linen cord’. The cord I used is actually waxed nylon – exact cord I used is the one linked here. Sorry!
• 14 12 mm beads (I used these teal candy jade beads)
• 7 2mm spacer beads (make sure holes will fit over cord): I used these 2mm faceted vermeil spacer beads.
• An awl
• Beeswax (optional)
• Sharp scissors
• A ruler
*Please note that if you’d like to make a design with more knots that this bracelet has, you’ll want to start with more cord.
