Sailor’s Knot Bracelet

In order to get myself back in the crafting groove I’ve been doing some quick and easy things like making simple jewelry and little amigurumi.  When I finish my crochet project I’ll post it here, but for now I have an awesome bracelet to talk about.  Almost a month ago Etsy ran a “How-Tuesday” where Simone Tan (a.k.a Groundsel) explained how to make a sailor’s knot bracelet.  I actually saw this post a few days ago and as soon as I finished reading it I grabbed the first skein of yarn closest to me and started to knot.  Here is the finished bracelet:

It’s kind of small and skinny because I just used normal yarn.  I wanted to make something chunkier so I headed to my local craft store and bought some thicker silver rope stuff and some even thicker cording.  Here it is with the silver rope:

This one is my absolute favorite and I’ve been wearing it every day since I’ve made it.  The silver rope makes it look more “fancy” so I can wear it when I’m being more dressy as well as just wearing it casually.

Here they are next to each other on me.  I think this style of bracelet looks better larger.  This brings us to the cording.

This stuff is really thick, and unfortunately I didn’t get enough of it to make a bracelet so that’s going to have to come later whenever I find the time to go buy more of this stuff.  Luckily it’s only like .29 cents a yard!  I think I’ll probably make a fabric bowl with this cording I have now.  I’ve been itching to make one for a while.
