DIY Macrame Bracelet

Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage. Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms. Happy knotting!

You’ll need:

Start by cutting the knotting cord into two 30 inch, two 20 inch and one 10 inch lengths.  Fold the 20 inch piece in half, pull the loop through the ring, fold it over the ring, and pull the rest of the cord through the loop. Repeat the step on the other side of the ring. These strands will be anchored and remain stationary.

Center the 30 inch cord under the two middle strands. Fold the right cord over the middle strands and under the left cord. Pull the left cord under the right and middle strands and through the loop on the right side.

Pull tightly and slide the knot up to the top.

Finish the 2nd half of the square knot by folding the left cord over the middle strands and under the right cord. Pull the right cord under the left and middle strands and through the loop on the left side.

Pull tightly and repeat the steps – left, right, left, right . . . Continue knotting until the desired length is reached. Keep in mind that the clasp will take up approximately half an inch.

To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 3-4 knots along the backside. Pliers will help pull the needle through the tight knots.

Repeat the same step on the other cord.

After sewing up both knotting cords, trim away any excess. Save the scraps and melt the tips with a lighter to seal it for extra hold. Repeat the same exact step on the second half of the bracelet.

To make a sliding closure, shape the bracelet into a circle and overlap the middle strands. Use scraps to temporarily tie the cords together at each end.

Take the 10 inch cord and center it under the strands. Start tying square knots exactly the same way the bracelet was executed.

Stop at about half an inch and sew the knotting cords into the backside of the closure. Remove the temporary ties.

The two sets of middle strands are now the adjustable ties of the bracelet. Adjust to fit the wrist and tie each end into knots. Trim away any excess.

Your adjustable knotted bracelets are finished!! xx

    I appreciate this tutorial so much; thanks for sharing! I tried one with embroidery floss since I didn’t have enough silk cord. It doesn’t look as polished/glossy because of the thread, but it captures the overall effect.

    Some questions: what do you do with the hanging adjustable threads? I kind of wrapped it around the bracelet but it doesn’t look good.. and my adjusted size keeps slipping. The coral and lavender bracelets inspired me to find crystals/accents for my own variations… did you also make adjustable bands for those?

  151. I actually had a hard time finding these charms too, so instead of using crystal connectors, I used old dangle earrings that I never wore. You can see what mine looked like with recycled jewelry here:

    I just made these with Embroidery thread and it worked well. A very cheap alternative. Michaels sells that for .35 and I used and old washer for the connector. Michaels also sold things that could be used if you don’t like the industrial/antique look. I also used a heavier cord and and tiny old skeleton key. Im not very crafty but they were easy to make.

  189. Macrame was my first jewelry love! I turned to wire since the nylon cord didn’t hang well as a necklace, but this project turned me back on to this old macrame knot. You can find most of what you need on Fire Mountain Gems or Rio Grande (you have to buy a catalog..but it is one of the biggest sites to buy jewelry supplies!) under findings.

Thank you so much for this easy-to-follow tutorial, I have never done this sort of knotting but you broke the process down into really easy steps, and I’ve just made my first bracelet, using waxed cotton cord.

    @Khadija I made one using embroidery floss, and it worked. It wasn’t TOO thin and the knots were spaced evenly and looked good. However, I got in the Chinese knotting cord that was recommended, and there is a BIG difference in quality. I like it so much better. It adds a shine and makes the bracelet a little sturdier.

  354. There are three required core courses, namely: (1)
    “Soils for Environmental Professionlas” (2) “Environmental Soil, Water and Land Use” (3) “Forest and Soil Ecosystem”.
    While a love of plants or nature inspires
    cottage and Asian gardens, formal garden designs express the humanistic value of people as the center
    of the cosmos. Though there are many companies that can assist
    you in helping to maintain the beauty of your property and home, one should not choose the first company that is found.

    Really cute, but perhaps a good addition would be to indicate the bracelet size you can make with the lengths of cords in the instructions. For taller (5.10) women with18 cm wrists, the lengths of cords are too short.

    The amount of thread used in bracelets varies depending on the pattern. The smallest pattern, a double chain knot, requires two strings while the candy stripe can have as 3 or more strings depending on the desired thickness.

    Thanks for this, I made my first macrame bracelet from this tutorial! I expanded it for three different coloured strands, I’m well happy 🙂

    Just a quick note to say that if you position the second strand (the 30 inch one) through the loop of the first rather than just underneath it, it locks it into position and there’s no sliding around.

    Thanks again 🙂

    I’ve made a few macramé in my day, but I’ve never seen a tutorial where the two threads get stitched back into the knots. So much more confident than all others that just snip, glue and cauterize the two working threads. Peace n love. Thank you

  407. I actually had a hard time finding these charms too, so instead of using crystal connectors, I used old dangle earrings that I never wore. You can see what mine looked like with recycled jewelry here:

    Thank you so much for this tutorial on Macrame!
    It helped a lot. My friend likes this kind of bracelet and I wanted to make him one.
    And I have noticed that macrame is a little similar to Paracord bracelets.
    Thanks again!

    and because I don’t have that Chinese Knotting Cord I used a really thin Paracord and it works just as well but it will be a little thicker than normal

    Hello Erica, I was wondering if you would mind if I made these beautiful macrame bracelets to sell. I would sell only to friends and family, but if my “business” became successful enough, I would want to sell them on Etsy. Please let me know where to draw the line!
    Thank you,
