How to Make a Wide Double Chevron Bracelet

Found This Helpful

Friendship bracelets are a fun activity for both kids and adults. They are also a great way to use up spare floss from an embroidery project. A double chevron pattern is great for the experienced bracelet maker. With a little time and patience, you can turn some strings into a beautiful and complex woven bracelet.

Things You'll Need

  • 4 colors of embroidery floss
  • Scissors
  • Safety pin


  1. Measure two 65-inch strands of each color of floss. Fold the strands in half and tie a knot an inch from the top. Pin the loop to a pillow.

  2. Arrange colors like two side-by-side chevrons, so they ascend and descend twice. They should line up 1 2 3 4, 4 3 2 1, 1 2 3 4, 4 3 2 1.

  3. Start with the far left strand 1. Knot twice on each of strands 2, 3 and 4. Pick up the left middle 1 strand and knot backwards on each of the three strands to the left. Knot the two 1 strands you just worked with together twice. Pick up the right middle strand 1 and knot across strands 2, 3, and 4 to the right. Pick up the 1 strand furthest to the right and knot backwards on each of the three strands to the left. Knot these two 1 strands together twice.

  4. Repeat Step 2 with colors 2, 3, and 4 until the bracelet is long enough to wrap around you wrist.

  5. Divide the remaining tails of the strands into two groups. Braid each one to the end and knot it.
