Chevron

What it looks like :

You’re going to need to know how to make a backward knot for this pattern. Go ahead and visit The Four Knots to review them.

(WARNING: Text is really small! If you can’t see it, click the image and it’ll open up to a new window and the text will be bigger. If you still are having issues, just scroll down on this page. I typed the directions after all the pictures.)

Here’s the directions just incase the number order confused you or you couldn’t see:

1) Pick four different colors. Arrange them in this order.

2) Let’s zoom in on the left side. Take the first string (the orange) and make a forward knot onto the green. Continue this onto the blue and pink threads.

3) Your bracelet should now look like this.

4) Now let’s zoom over to the right side. Take the orange string and make a backward knot onto the green. Continue this with the blue and pink threads.

5) Your bracelet should now look like this.

6) Now let’s triple zoom for the next knot! Take the first of the two orange strings and make a forward knot. Now you’re done with your first row!

7) Now repeat the whole process with the green string. Then after that, do blue. Then the pink string, and so on until you have a bracelet that looks like this!

Really cool things to do with your chevron bracelet!

  1. Double the colors. This will make your bracelets arrows a lot thicker! Here’s an example string order: red red yellow yellow yellow yellow red red.
  2. Take a bunch of colors that look the same and put them together! There’s usually a wide variety of pinks, blues, purples, and greens in a econo-pack of embroidery floss at the craft store. Take all those different colors of the pinks and make a really cool bracelet for your younger sister! Or put all those greens to use for a very celebrating chevron right in time for Earth day!
  3. Instead of just an eight-strand bracelet, try  adding another two strings or more to make it bigger!
Update on chevron patterns : There are a lot of things you can do with a chevron bracelet. More chevron patterns are coming soon! So don’t only think that those three things are all you can do with this pattern- there are plenty more!
