Designed by Marie Vetrano.
- Hemp, 10 lb. – Bloom Bright or Color of Choice
- Ball Chain
- Duck Tape® (or Clipboard)
Cut three lengths of hemp 20" for each bracelet.
Cut a 7½" length of ball chain.
Gather three strands of hemp and fold in half. Make an overhand knot at the fold, leaving a small loop at the end. To create uniform loops at the end of the bracelets: slide a pen or pencil into the loop and snug the knot to it.
Push the end of the ball chain under the knot.
Attach loop end to a clipboard or tape to your work surface with a piece of Duck Tape®.
Separate the hemp into three sections (two strands each, with the ball chain in the center).
Braid the strands (keeping an even tension as you braid) until you have the desired length. The average wrist length is 7½".
Tie an overhand knot close to the last braid and ball chain. Knot again. Trim ends of the strands. Refer to photo.
Make several bracelets and stack them.
