Easy Friendship Bracelets
Super easy friendship bracelets using the cardboard disc technique
Using a tin can or similar, cut out a cardboard circle. Draw 4 lines across your disc to create 8 equal segments.Make a hole in the middle.Cut 1cm into each line you drawn – so you have approximately 1cm cut, 2 cm uncut and then the hole. Take your seven strands of yarn and tie a knot at one end.Thread your strands through the hole in the disc.Take one strand at a time and slot it through one of the 1 cm strips. You should have 7 strands tucked in, with one “space slot”. Take the 3rd strand to the LEFT of the spare slot, lift it up, bring it down and put across the spares slot. This creates a new space.Rotate your disc for this to point down and pick the strand 3 to the left and fold down.Repeat. Your yarn friendship bracelet will begin to “grow” on the other side of the disc, give it a gentle tug every so often.
