I love bracelets that I can layer! So, here’s another layering bracelet that’s really nice with the last bracelet tutorial I did { here } & this simple bracelet tutorial { here } The great thing about these is that you can make them any length you want to with as many different colors as you’d like. AND they are really easy & fast to make to make! They would make great gifts for friends too!

    love this bracelet – I’m having trouble tying the strands together – and having it stay tied or not stretch out – can you provide directions as to theh type of double knot you are doing? or show a diagram?? thank you!

      Glad you like the bracelet Penney! When tying the 2 strands together { as in steps 3 & 4 } I just tied the kind of knot you would make if you were tying your shoe laces { folding the 2 strands over one another and tighten, then do it again } the next knot I took the 2 stands together in one hand and hold the rest of the bracelet in the other hand, make a loop at the point of the knot above and feed the ends of the strands through. This makes a double knot with both strands and should not come undone. check out steps 3 & 4.
      Hope this helps! You can really do whatever kind of knots you feel comfortable doing!
