This tutorial shows how you can weave this alternating lark’s head bracelet with step by step images in 5 minutes. This is part of the ‘macrame – ropes and bands’ series.
For adult size bracelet:
- White cord: 110 centimeters
- Green cord: 110 centimeters
- Bracelet clasps. Or you can weave your own macrame button like I have done using Celtic button knot. Click link for the button’s tutorial.
- White filler cord with Celtic button knot on one end or bracelet clasps on both ends.
Method for making alternating Lark’s knot head knot bracelet
Fold the filler cord as shown below. This length will be the length of the bracelet.
We will make one Lark’s head/ cow hitch knot with green followed by one white knot.
Each knot has two steps.
Step 1: Fold the green working cord in the shape of number 4 on the white filler cords.
Next pass it below the two white cords and bring it to the left as shown below.
Step 2: For the next step, we will first take the working cord below the 2 white cords.
Next take it above the two cords and bring it to the left side as shown below.
One knot has been completed with the green cord.
Repeat the same steps with the white cord but it will be in the opposite direction.
Step 1: Fold the white working cord.
Pass white working cord under the two white filler cords and go right.
Step 2: This time, the white working cord will pass under the two white cords.
Bring it back to the right side above the two cords as shown below.
White knot has been completed.
Next knot will be made with green cord.
Creating picot edge with cow hitch knot
To create a picot edge, leave gap between knots and
then slide them together.
Here is how the picot will look like.
Once the bracelet is done, cut the ends and melt with lighter and immediately press the hot melting end to the cord nearby to join them.
For the other end with the loop for the button, I ended the two cords by passing the green and white ends through the loop. This will prevent the button loop from slipping through the knots.
Cut both the ends, melt and merge.
Macrame bracelet is ready.
