How do You Make Adjustable Macramé Beaded Friendship Bracelet Step by Step

2 weeks ago I made a macramé friendship bracelet tutorial named "How do You Make Braided Chevron Friendship Bracelet with Golden Bicone Beads", which is very similar to this one. Although they are both macramé beaded bracelet patterns and include same knotting skills, the beads added in another way here yet bring about entirely different visual effect. Let's see how to make this adjustable macramé bracelet!
Materials and tools for making adjustable macramé friendship bracelet:
1mm blue nylon threads
1mm black nylon threads
8mm gold abacus beads
Instructions for making adjustable macramé friendship bracelet:
Step 1: Make the first two rows for chevron macramé pattern
1st, snip 4 strands for each color and leave about 8cm tail at top end;
2nd, align 8 strands in the order as picture shows (a-h); tie forward knot with a over b and h over g, so the position of a&b (h&g) are swapped round;
3rd, tie forward knots with c over d, and f over e; from pic1-3 first row is finished;
4th, keep tying knots with a over d and h over e; then cross c & f through a gold bead; from 4-6 the second row is finished.
Step 2: Weave the last two rows for chevron macramé pattern
1st, similarly tie knots to finish the third row (pic1-3);
2nd, continue tying knots and beading to finish the fourth row (pic4-6);
Step 3: Make adjustable closure for the macramé beaded bracelet pattern
1st, when bracelet reaches your desired length, stop braiding and fold the top end and bottom end threads together;
2nd, pick another piece of black thread and tie 5-6 square knots;
3rd, add a bead to each thread and knot at its end;
4th, trim off excess threads and singe their ends.
Here you get your finalized macramé beaded friendship bracelet with adjustable closure! Black and blue combination is rather cool for both males and females. And the macramé bracelet pattern with beads is always popular among youngsters. Enjoy braiding!
