I saw these recently, and just *had* to make one. Chinese button knots form the closure element.

I love the knots you used. It looks so much nicer than just a plain old overhand knot.

That's beautiful!  Do you happen to have a tutorial?  I've always wanted to try my hand at making one.

Here's the tutorial I used to form the Chinese knots.

The tutorial I used to create the bracelet itself I found here.

I doubled the thread and used a lark's head type "knot" instead of literally tying a knot when I needed more thread. I think it just looks a bit neater.

Good luck! It's a lot of fun to make. Takes awhile, but the end result is worth it, I think.

p.s. Using a ruler instead of a piece of cardboard works out nicely.
