What you need
l Three strands of cotton butcher’s twine cut into one yard pieces
l 18 small brass hex nuts
l a bit of dexterity and patience
What to do
l Gather the three strands of twine and tie a knot at the top, leaving about two inches of slack and start braiding.
l At about an inch of the way down, begin braiding in the hex nuts.
l Before you braid the far left strand over the middle strand, thread on a hex nut, push it against the base of the braid, and crossover.
l Depending on the thickness of the twine, you can wrap tape around the bottom tips to prevent the twine from fraying.
l Keep your thumb at the base of the braid, holding the hex nut in its place.
l Before you braid the far right strand over the middle, thread on another hex nut, push it against the base of the braid and crossover.
l Again, hold your thumb tightly against the base of the braid, keeping the hex nuts in place.
l Thread another hex nut onto the far left piece and crossover.
l Repeat the steps, by threading the rest of the nuts to the outer pieces of twine before they are crossed over. Thread, cross, thread, cross.
l Finish the bracelet with another inch of braided twine and a knot.
The bracelet should wrap around your wrist at least two or three times. Trim it to your liking.
