So I love friendship bracelets and have been making them for a while on and off depending on my schedule (I'm still in school) and now that it's the summer, I've made a few. I've always been fond of this one particular style, but I never could find out how to do it. Does anyone know how to make these types of bracelets?

and the one on the bottom left:

I've also noticed that these bracelets usually use a softer looking floss than the normal embroidery floss. Does anyone know anything about this?

Thanks in advance! You guys are awesome!

PS. So about the bracelet on the right. If anyone knows anything... hehe info is greatly appreciated!

Making friendship bracelets is always fun.. kind of repetitive but still!  The one on the left of the picture looks like the hairbraids I used to get on holiday when I was younger.

I would say the one on the right looks like the 3 of the "normal" friendship bracelets plaited together. Sorry if that doesn't make sense.. I'll try and find a link for what I call "normal": http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Friendship-Bracelet

i.e. do the steps above with 3 red strands and separately with 3 blue etc.. and then knot those to eachother along with white and plait.

I don't know but that's what I would guess.. you could always test it out and if it didn't work just have 3 standard bracelets out of it?!

the bracelet that you're trying to make is a lot like doing hair wraps...have you ever done anything like that?

only it would just be lots of strands of embroidery floss (the more strands/colors there are, the thicker it would be) instead of hair and you just basically wrap the floss around the other strands reeeaaallly tight and close together so there are no gaps. when you want to change colors just tie a knot with the color you're using around the other threads then just lay it with the rest and pick up the next color you want to use.

i hope that makes sense....i would look up direction on hair wraps if you're confused

I love personal swaps!

I hope I have helped.
