square knot cotton bangle made with small stuff
Here's a stack of cotton bangles made from #18 cotton cord using a familiar macrame knotting technique.
All of these are made the same diameter 2 3/8" but the technique can be used on a limitless number of molds in various sizes to suit the need.
Thread a small wood bead and place it at the center of the doubled cord.
Wrap the doubled cord around a mold, in this case a PVC coupling, reverse the working ends and tie the first square knot.
This creates a four strand core which is then used to support a series of square knots. These knots create the diagonal crossing pattern seen on the left.
A bit of nylon floss secures the cotton cord and enables the loose ends to be cut without fear of unraveling.
