Tips & Tricks

  • To make your knots more even, tighten the weave cord first.  
  • Add beads to the cord that goes under your center strands and not the weave cord.
  • To make your bracelet into a 3 wrap bracelet, add beads for the first wrap, just knot for the second wrap, add two beads and then knot for the 3rd wrap.    Use a crimp bead with extender for the clasp instead of a square knot sliding class
