Step 1

Gather Materials
Choose nylon or silk cord, or velvet ribbon. A 4-mm width is easiest to work with. Use about 45 inches of cord or ribbon for a 7-inch bracelet. You’ll also need liquid seam sealant, tweezers, buttons, a foam board, anddressmaker pins, as shown here.
Step 2

Cut cord to size, and seal ends with seam sealant. Thread through buttonholes, keeping ends even, and lay face down on foam board. Insert pin through one buttonhole and cord

to secure. Make S bend

with end A, securing by winding around pins; pierce cord with pin at top right corner of S bend. Weave end B over first horizontal segment of S bend, and under the next two.

Step 3

Weave end B back over all three horizontal segments of A . Then weave it back up, under the bottom two segments and over the top segment. Remove pins. Using both hands, carefully pull cord as indicated left, making a loose knot.

Step 4

Using tweezers, gently tug up on knot where indicated above and slide knot so it’s about 1 1/2 inches from the button. (The back of the knot will resemble the one far left; the front will resemble far right.) Use tweezers to tighten knot. Pin it to foam board, and secure. Continue adding evenly spaced knots.

Step 5

When bracelet is desired length, pinch loose ends together, and tie an overhand knot. Trim the excess cord; seal ends with seam sealant.
