I really wanted last week-end to pass, so I made this little goodie. I love these kinds of patterns, but I rarely make them as I rarely have enough thread of the same color for these.
This time I did have some, so here's the result:





And an "in progress" picture:

It's called knotting. Smiley A type of macram. Smiley

I love your bracelet Cheesy It turned out great. I would love to make one of these myself, but just like you I don't always have enough yarn. How long was each strand? And did you design the pattern yourself or did you get it from a certain friendship bracelets site?

I got it from this site:
http://friendship-bracelets.net/pattern.php?id=48682

My threads were:
light blue (10 threads) 160 cm
dark blue and black (6-6 threads) 133 cm
But I had lots of leftovers, enough for an other bracelet (actually two, they are still in progress... Cheesy). I have to add I have a very small wrist, so this bracelet is almost big for me.

Thanks for the info! I thought I recognized the pattern Wink Good luck with the other two bracelets.

Haha, only now I discover that you also made that other bracelet that I liked, the one with the holes Wink I just wanted to say that thanks to your post I took up knotting again as well Smiley  I forgot how much fun knotting was. I'm on my third bracelet now, I am working on this pattern.
