How to Braid Hemp String Jewelry

    • 1). Pull a length of hemp off the spool that is twice as long as you want your necklace or bracelet, plus 8 inches. Pull off a second strand that is 11 times as long as you want your jewelry if you are making only knots or 6 times as long if you are alternating knots and beads.

    • 2). Fold both strands in half, and then tie the doubled stands into a knot. There should be two short pieces of hemp in the center, called the base, one long strand on the left, called the partner, and one long strand on the right, called the leader.

    • 3). Cross the leader over the base and pass it under the partner strand. Pass the partner strand behind the base and up through the loop created by the leader. The partner is now the new leader and vice versa.

    • 4). String a bead on the base cords, if desired, repeat the previous knot to create a spiral braid or proceed to the next type of knot to create a flat one.

    • 5). Cross the partner over the base cords and pass it under the leader strand. Pass the leader behind the base strands and through the loop created by the partner.

    • 6). Continue knotting the cord using one or both knots and periodically adding beads as desired until the cord is used up.
