How to make friendship bracelets on a Loome tool
Happy Best Friends Day! 🌸👯♀️ Celebrate your bestie in style with a handmade friendship bracelet. This is a fun and easy craft to do, especially in the summer as they're so versatile and quick to make. Here's how to make 3 different types of friendship bracelets on a Loome.
What you'll need:
- A Loome tool (any one will do: XL, Robot or Big A)
- Yarn scraps (I like to use 100% DK cotton like Ricorumi, but any DK or Aran-weight will do)
- Darning needle
This is a simple woven bracelet, with 2 base strings and one main string that weaves in and out of the base strings in a figure of 8 motion to create this fishtail pattern. Leave string at the top and bottom for tying on to the recipients wrist.
Experiment with short ones to make rings!
Single Loop Bracelets
Create this spiral bracelet by making a single loop on the same side of the base yarn over and over again. Add beads at the beginning and end too for extra interest!
Cobra Knot Bracelets
This is a classic pattern, making square knots around a base thread and alternating sides. This makes a flat bracelet and works with thin yarn and chunkier ropes like hemp and macrame rope too.
