Bracelet with Nylon Cord and Imitation Rhodium-Plated "Pewter" Cord Lock and Cord Ends

STEP 1
Cut the following lengths of 1mm nylon cord:
  • One 1-1/2 foot black
  • One 1-1/2 foot white
  • Two 3-foot lime

Focal Celtic Knot

STEP 2
Use an overhand knot to tie one end of the black cord to the center of a lime cord. Repeat to attach the white cord to the second lime cord.
STEP 3
Treating the three cords as one, lay the lime and white cords on your workspace at a 45-degree angle.

Treating the three cords as one, loop the lime and black cords in the center to create a sideways awareness ribbon shape over the lime and white.

STEP 4
Curve the bottom of the lime and white cords up to lay over the lower leg of the lime and black then under the upper leg.

STEP 5
Continue curving cord down, over the curve of the lime and black and under the other leg of the lime and white and over the curve of the line and black.

STEP 6
Slowly tighten the knot, keeping the knot and the ends of the cords symmetrical.

Braided Bracelet

STEP 7
On one side of the Celtic knot separate the six cords into three pairs. Using each pair as one cord, work a three-cord braid to the desired length.

Gather all six cords and insert through one hole of a cord lock.

Repeat with the six cord ends on the opposite side of the Celtic knot.
STEP 8
Cut two 1-foot lengths of lime cord.
STEP 9
Use a length of lime cord to tie a whipping knot at the end of the three-cord braid, before the cord lock. Secure with a bit of E-6000® Fray Lock™ then trim the excess cord.

Repeat on the second three-cord braid with the remaining length of lime cord.
STEP 10
Trim the cords to approximately one inch back from the cord lock.
STEP 11
Use E-6000 Fray Lock to add a cord end to each end of the bracelet.
