Day 2: The Chevron

002-chevron-dream-a-little-bigger

If you have officially mastered The Candy Stripe, today’s bracelet is going to be The Chevron. It’s the same idea as the candy stripe, but you will be “knotting” the threads from the outside in instead of threading straight across.

If you missed yesterday’s post, start on that bracelet first:

The Supplies:
*Embroidery Thread. (About 65 cm)
*Scissors
*Clipboard
*Measuring Tape

Like The Candy Stripe, you can decide how many colors and strings you would like to work with. In my bracelet, I used 3 colors totaling six strings. I would recommend again getting about 130 cm of string and folding it in half to tie a loop knot.

I will refer you again to this website for instructions and a YouTube video.

I would love to see what color combinations you come up with!
