V Shaped Friendship Bracelet Pattern
One of the easiest summer projects is making friendship bracelets. From simple designs to more intricate patterns, tying bracelets is the perfect project for beginners and advanced crafters alike.
Use the right-hand light pink string to tie backward knots over the next three strings (blue, purple, green). Connect the middle strands with forward knots.
How to Make a Chevron Friendship Bracelet
Unlock your inner designer with a wrist full of these fun and easy bracelets. These bracelets make great accessories for everyday wear or gifts for friends and family.
To start, cut 8 strands of embroidery floss or yarns in a variety of colors (we recommend 4). Fold each string in half and tie a knot at the end to create a loop.
Now, begin tying forward and backward knots with the strings. To do this, use the outermost right-hand string (shown in pink here) and tie a backward knot on the next three strings until you reach the middle (string A, string B, and string C). Next, use the left-most string and make a forward knot on those same strings. Repeat these steps until the chevron bracelet is the length you want. Finish the bracelet by tying a knot and trimming any excess strands. Add a pony bead or button to the end and you’re ready to go!
There are a huge number of different friendship bracelet patterns that get passed on from friend to friend or can be found in books. From chevrons and braids to stripes, diamonds and hearts, the possibilities are endless!
Whether you’re making one for a friend or just to spice up your own collection, you’ll need some embroidery floss and a few beads. Using elastic cord is another fun way to make a bracelet. Beads come in all shapes and sizes, so you can create a bracelet that’s truly unique.
Start by separating the strands into two groups (one strand of each color) and then make forward knots on the left group of strings and backward knots on the right group of strings until you reach the middle. Repeat this pattern of 2 normal rows and 2 special rows until your bracelet is the length you want it to be. Tie a big knot at the end and trim the remaining tails.
This v shaped friendship bracelet pattern uses forward and backward knots to create a unique V-shaped design. It’s great for beginners because it involves only four strands and the colors are easy to keep track of. This is a fun project for friends to do together, as it is a good way to practice the basic knots before moving on to more complicated patterns such as chevrons, stripes, diamonds and hearts.
To start, take your first color and make two normal rows. Then, make 2 special rows (a forward and a backwards knot).
Repeat the process for all the other colors. When you’re finished, your bracelet will be ready to wear. When you’re done, tie a final knot and trim the ends. You can use fabric glue to seal the finishing knot for a polished look. Kids love making bracelets, and they’ll be proud to show off their creations. They can even add beads, tassels and charms to their bracelet.
There are many fun variations of the chevron pattern that can be used to elevate your bracelets and give them a unique look. You can even use baker’s twine for a chunkier two-color design that is very instyle. This pattern is also easy to make and a great way to master your forward and backward knots.
Once you’ve mastered this pattern, you can move on to other more advanced designs, like the candy stripe. This design is a little more challenging because it requires you to keep track of more string but it’s still doable for beginner crafters.
Another cool variation is the wave pattern, which can be used to symbolize something special in your life or to just show love. This pattern is also very easy to make and works well when made with embroidery floss. It is created with 2 normal rows followed by two special rows to form the heart. Just repeat this pattern until you have a bracelet that is long enough to wrap around your wrist.
