You circled the 2nd string (hemp) with your first string (red), now pull the first (red) string up to the top of the bracelet by the big knot and set it down.
Pull the knot up and set your thread down, this time between the 3rd (pink) and 4th (white) pieces of string.
Make sure this knot is in the middle of your hemp so you have equal lengths of string on each side to work with.
Continue always catching the center string on the right side of your knot, and gently bring the knot in.
Take the hemp string on your right (A) and place it across the front of your center strings (C) to form a “P”.
Keep the two short and colorful pieces of string in the middle, and pull the hemp string out to the left and right.

The DNA Knot is very similar to the square knot, the difference is it twists because you always knot the same side of your string instead of alternating sides.

The first string that you were working with (red) will always form a knot around the one that is newly adjacent to it.

With the buckle arced inward like in part 2 of the diagram, thread the cords through the lower slit of the buckle.
 • When measuring, make sure to measure from the middle point of the male part of the buckle, to the end part of the female part of the buckle.
Pull the loose ends of the cord through the loop created on the other side and pull it all the way until the knot forms and locks onto the buckle.
• For the example in this diagram, my wrist measured in at 6.5”, so I’m measuring the cord to be 7.5” long.
Position your bracelet like shown in part one of the diagram.
Pull tight and create the knot like shown in part 6 of the diagram.
Part 3 of the diagram is an example of how the buckle should look from a top view.

If you’re making the bracelet for a child, measure from his finger to shoulder.

These are all done by finger weaving loops.  Depending on which loops you use you get a different pattern.  The first bracelet it a flat 7 strand braid (which I will demonstrate), the second bracelet is a 4 sided cubed braid (which is shown in the video).  Both are cute and your children will love to make these.
Then grab that last loop with your pinky (letting go with the pointer finger) and pulling it through the rest of the strands and tighten.  Now you have 4 loops on your opposite hand.
One of my most favorite crafts to do when I was in elementary school was to make friendship bracelets.  If you were my friend, acquaintance and sometimes even my enemy you received a friendship bracelet made by me.  I sold them at a stand in my neighborhood and got busted for making them in class.  One of the easiest and quickest bracelets to make is the finger weaving kind.

Place that floppy loop around the thumb on your left hand and pull the loose string back through the first knot with your right hand.
To finish the knotted portion of the bracelet, create one last loop, but this time you will pull the piece of yarn all the way through and secure the knots.
I’ve used this particular knot for garlands, I’ve used them for hanging balloons and now I’m using knots for these Knotted Yarn Bracelets.
To loosen, just pull on the piece of yarn (the one with the knot at the end) the other direction.
Don’t cut it too short as this is yarn and it is somewhat slippery and a nice tug can pull it out of the knot.
