Captured Chain Weave Bracelet

Instructions:

  1. Take your button and put your 1.5mm leather cord through the shank. Center the leather on the button and clip it onto the board. The button should be clipped at the top; use a binder clip to secure the other end to the bottom of the board.

  2. Take your 1.2mm Chinese knotting cord and put it under both of your leather cords. Center the cord and ensure both sides are even before knotting.

  3. Start your Shamballa knot: Take your right knotting cord over both leather cords and under the left knotting cord. Take your left knotting cord under all cords and up through the loop. Now repeat for the left side. Take your left knotting cord over your leather cords and under the right knotting cord. Then take your right knotting cord under all cords and up through the loop. Full Shamballa knot complete!

  12. Take your left knotting cord over the leather cords and under the right knotting cord. Then take your right knotting cord under everything and up through the loop. Repeat steps 11 and 12.
     
  13. Glue your last two Shamballa knots; let dry and nip the ends. (It is best to glue on the bottom side of your bracelet where possible. As the glue dries, the color of the knotting cord will darken.)
