Friendship bracelet patterns are probably how many of us first got started making our own jewelry. We all learned how to make friendship bracelets on the playground at school and had so much fun trading with our friends, right?
But macrame bracelet patterns aren't just for kids; they're fun for adults too. No matter what your age, you can always enjoy friendship bracelet designs, and these free friendship bracelet instructions are just what you need to get back into the craft.
Macrame is such a versatile technique, and there are so many different friendship bracelet designs that can be made with it! We have more basic macrame bracelet patterns, like stripe and chevron designs, but we also have friendship bracelet instructions for more intricate designs, like hearts and daisies.
If you're just learning how to make friendship bracelets, you may want to stick with the more basic macrame bracelet patterns to start, and then move on to the more detailed friendship bracelet designs once you've gotten some practice. But don't worry! All of these friendship bracelet instructions are very thorough and easy to follow, so you'll have no problem creating amazing bracelet designs of your own. So grab some string in your favorite colors, and check out all of our free friendship bracelet patterns below!
