Wool bracelets - Simple Kumihimo style
My fun blog: andhubbymakes8.com
and my serious blog: lesreasonables.com
These bracelets look fabulous, and are easier to make than you might think. Choose your favourite colours and weave away!
: 30 minutes - 1 hour
: 5-10's, Over 10's
Use the scissors to poke a hole in the middle, then twist the scissors to make it round
A heavy cardboard will hold the strings tighter, resulting in a more tightly woven bracelet
Strands of about 50cm is plenty for a bracelet
That's it! Keep doing this and the bracelet will work its way out through the hole.
Be sure to stop and unravel the strands every now and then, as they tangle while you weave.
If you like, you can plait the ends to make a tie, or just make the bracelet long enough for tying.
For something different, try adding more strands - just cut more slots, so that there is one more slot than the number of wool strands. Keep counting three anticlockwise.
