BEFORE YOU GET STARTED
Learn how to make a simple yet meaningful bracelet with your spare scraps of fiber in just a few minutes. Friendship bracelets make for a perfect gift for yourself, your bestie, or someone you know who could simply use a smile. This is a great project for travel, kids, and large groups!
- 12-18'' of scrap fiber: We used our Silk Watercolor Chiffon Yarn because the colors lend well to this tutorial, but for bracelets we recommend using our Recycled Sari Silk Piping Cord Ribbon, which has a silky smooth finish that allows you to easily adjust the size. Here's a bracelet made from our Piping Cord Ribbon for reference:

STEP BY STEP GUIDE
Here is our step by step guide for making a friendship bracelet. For this example, we used Darn Good Silk Chiffon Ribbon Yarn so that the colors could help you follow each step.
STEP 1Arrange your strand of ribbon to form the shape of a bracelet (a circle), making sure that the ends of the strand overlap.
STEP 2Loop one end of your strand of yarn over the other end, pulling it through the loop you just created (similar to tying your shoe!)
STEP 3:Pull both ends of your yarn strand so that a knot is created. Don't pull too tight! You'll want the knot a little loose so that your friendship bracelet is adjustable.
STEP 4:Pull one of the yarn strand ends to be a little longer than the other. Using the longer end of the yarn strand, repeat steps 1-3 by looping the end around the bracelet in progress.
Pull the ends of your yarn strand, tightening the second knot you created. (Again, not too tight!) Slide the bracelet on your wrist and adjust the size of it by pulling the two loose ends.
STEP 6: ENJOY!
