HOW TO MAKE THE BRACELETS

Landscape (UK) - - In The Kitchen -

Step 1: Danny holds down a piece of card on the ta­ble as Am­ber draws around the cir­cum­fer­ence of an up­turned jar with a pen­cil. The cir­cle is then cut out.

Step 2: The cen­tre point of the disc is marked on the card. Am­ber then pushes a pen­cil through to make a larger hole.

Step 3: Sl­its are cut around the edge of the cir­cle, ap­prox­i­mately ¾in (2cm) long. A cut is made at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock po­si­tions fol­lowed by a cut half­way be­tween each, to make eight sl­its in to­tal.

Step 4: Seven strands of wool are knot­ted at one end. The knot is pushed through the cen­tral hole.

Step 5: A dif­fer­ent strand is slot­ted through all but one of the sl­its. The empty slit is turned so it is at the top of the cir­cle.

Step 6: The strand in the slit to the right of the bottom strand is moved into the empty top slit. This leaves an­other slit empty. The card is ro­tated so the new empty slit is at the top and the process re­peated. Grad­u­ally, the wo­ven bracelet emerges through the hole. Once the bracelet reaches the de­sired length, a knot is made ½cm along from where the weave fin­ishes. The bracelet is re­moved from the card and the hanging ends trimmed. It is fas­tened by push­ing the start­ing knot through the strands of wool be­tween the end of the weave and the end knot.
