Knotted cord bracelet DIY

Today I will show you how to make a wonderful knotted bracelet. I like these bracelets in white, red and blue, probably because these are nautical colors. But for the DUY I decided to choose a nice pale pink cord)

You will need:
  •      pliers
  •      cord about 0.5-0.7m/20-30"
  •      cord ends
  •      2 jump rings 5mm/0.2" diamete
  •      lobster clasp
  •      if it's possible, the chain-extension
  •      ruler
  •      scissors
So, lets begin. Take the cord and divide it into two halves. Then, from one half make out the knot shown in the figure below.
Pass the second cord besides the first one. Here's what you should have.
Tighten the knot.
Measure your wrist. Cut out this length from the the cord with knot wrapping the place before with scotch tape. You can put a drop of glue. Do not be afraid that the bracelet will be small - we are still going to add the lobster clasp and chain extention, at the end the length increases.

Attach cord ends to both ends of the bracelet.
At one end attach the lobster clasp, at another end - the chain-extension.

Your bracelet is ready!
This bracelet needs a little time and materials and you can make them in different colors))
I wish you good luck
