I chose for us a simple model, with only three strands of floss. If you want however to further experiment, you can simply add more colors to your friendship bracelet. You might get as a result a stunning and complex design.
1. Cut three pieces of variously colored embroidery floss.
2. At one end, knot the three pieces of floss together, then tape the knot to a flat surface.
3. Make sure that each color is on the left, middle, and right strands by separating them.
4. Cross over the middle strand with the left strand. Then, cross the right strand over the new middle strand.
5. Repeat step four until the bracelet reaches the desired length.
6. Now you’re ready to tie the bracelet around your friend’s wrist (cut off any surplus floss, if necessary).
