Method 1 Making a Flat Macrame Bracelet

    1

    Cut your hemp. Cut 2 long pieces of hemp about 5 feet (1.5 m) long. Match the ends up and fold both pieces in half. Tie a knot at the fold.

    Stabilize one end. It helps to tape the loop left from the knot onto a table or safety pin to a chair or the knee of your jeans. This will give you some leverage as you create the pattern of knots in the bracelet.

    Separate the strands. You should have four strands of hemp. For this type of knot, the two center strands will remain together, while the outer strands will be moving around.

    Create a loop. Take the strand on the left and cross it across the two middle strands to create a "4" shape.

    Tie the first knot. Take the strand on the right and cross it over the tail end of the first strand from the left. Then, pull the strand over and under, up through the loop in the "4" that was created.

    Tighten the knot Pull on strands 1 and 4 to tighten the knot. Make sure that all your knots are of an even tightness throughout the bracelet to create a level pattern.

    Tie a knot on the other side. Use the same method as explained above to tie a knot starting on the right instead of the left. Each knot should move from the leftmost strand to the rightmost strand to create a flat (rather than a spiral) bracelet.

    Continue the pattern. Tie knots back and forth until it reaches a point long enough to wrap around the entirety of your wrist.

    Tie off the ends. When you reach your stopping point, tie a basic knot at the end of the bracelet. Cut off any excess hemp, and use the knot and the loop on the opposite end to secure the bracelet to your wrist. Enjoy![1]

Method 2 Making a Beaded Bracelet

  1. Image titled Make Hemp Bracelets Step 11

    1

    Choose your supplies. To create a beaded bracelet, you will need natural or dyed hemp and beads of your choice. Any kind of bead will work as long as it has a hole that fits the hemp strands, but seed beads are the best for this project.

    2

    Cut your hemp. You will need three strands of hemp cut at about 16 inches (40.6 cm) long each. The strands will be braided together, so the finished bracelet won’t be nearly so long.

    3

    Tie off one end. Hold the three strings together so that they are even, and tie them off on one end with about 2 inches (5.1 cm) of the strands on one end of the knot. This will be used to attach the bracelet to your wrist when it is finished.
  4. Image titled Make Hemp Bracelets Step 14

    4

    Begin braiding. Do a classic braid beginning at the knot. Spread the three strands out, and then cross the right strand over the center. Then, cross the left strand over the center piece.

    5

    Continue braiding. Continue the pattern of adding the right strand over the left, and then the left over the right, until you have reached ⅓ of the way across the desired length of your bracelet.

    6

    Add the beads. After you cross the right strand to the center, slide on a bead and then cross the left strand over it. Do the same again, crossing the right strand, adding a single bead, and then crossing the left strand, until you’ve completed another ⅓ of the bracelet.

    7

    Finish your braiding. After adding enough beads, go back to regular braiding until you’ve finished the final ⅓ of the bracelet. Tie a knot and cut off the excess hemp about 2 inches (5.1 cm) from the knot.

    Wear your finished bracelet! Make several bracelets and stack them for a bohemian feel, or wear a single bracelet just for fun. Use the loose ends of the string to tie a knot around your wrist or ankle, and enjoy![2]

Method 3 Making a Spiral Hemp Bracelet

  1. Image titled Make Hemp Bracelets Step 19

    1

    Cut your hemp. A spiral bracelet will require four pieces of hemp. Measure your wrist, and then cut two pieces of hemp that are 3x the length of your wrist. Make the other two pieces of hemp 5x the length of your wrist.
  2. Image titled Make Hemp Bracelets Step 20

    2

    Tie the strands together. Lay all four pieces of hemp out on a table so that the two long pieces are on the outside while the two shorter pieces are in the middle. Tie a knot on one end, keeping them in this fashion. Leave a bit of extra string on the end to use to secure the bracelet to your wrist when you are finished.
  3. Image titled Make Hemp Bracelets Step 21

    3

    Make a loop. Take the long piece on the right and fold the end over the center two pieces, forming a “D” shape.
  4. Image titled Make Hemp Bracelets Step 22

    4

    Tie the first knot. Take the long piece on the left, cross it over the tail of the piece from the right, and then bring it through the loop that was formed. This should create a knot around the two center strings. You will only be using the long, outer two pieces of hemp to do the knot-tying.
  5. Image titled Make Hemp Bracelets Step 23

    5

    Continue the pattern. Working from the right side only, continue making a loop, crossing the left string over and then under and through the loop. After a few knots you will begin to notice a spiral in your bracelet; twist it back to keep it in line as you work.

    6

    Finish the bracelet. When enough knots have been tied to create a spiral long enough to wrap around your wrist, tie a knot at the end and cut the excess pieces off. You can attach clasps to secure the bracelet to your wrist or simply tie a knot with the loose strands.[3]
