Friendship Keychains, Bookmarks & Bracelets - Working with multi-color patterns

Friendship Keychains, Bookmarks & Bracelets - Working with multi-color patterns - student project

Class Description

In this class you will learn how to work with multi-color friendship bracelet patterns. You will receive the skills necessary to work with any pattern that involves forward and backward knots. You will learn how to be creative with the pattern, turning it into a keychain, bookmark, and/or bracelet. This class also encourages creativity and will present several different ways of doing things. To get the best experience, think of it more as a tutorial. After you watch "Finding a Pattern", find a pattern you want to work with and then decide if you want to make a bookmark, keychain, or bracelet with it. Then move on to "Understanding the Pattern".

Skills students will learn:

  1. How to read and work with a pattern
  2. How to use one pattern to create three different projects
  3. How to precisely measure the length of sting required for each project
  4. How to weave in new colors into a project

This class is for anyone wishing to learn how to work with these intricate patterns. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or someone who has friendship braceleted before and wishes to broaden their skills. If you have experience with friendship bracelets and macrame, feel free to skip around. 

You’re going to be creating your own micro macrame bracelet, keychain, or bookmark. I want you to find a pattern that speaks to you. If you wish, you can work from the same patterns I am or from a pattern you find on your own. When you find a pattern, decide if you want to create a bracelet, keychain, or bookmark with it. Then, follow my lessons carefully. Here are the patterns I worked with in the class:

1. For the keychain: House Stark Pattern

2. For the bookmark: Pac-Man Pattern

3. For the bracelet: Poké Ball Pattern
