Every person making a bracelet often asks themselves, how long should it be? How will I know if it fits me?
I was self taught, and I learned the following basic principle:
—— DON’T MAKE IT TOO SHORT! —–
To ensure sure it reaches around you or your friends’ wrist, it is suggested that you may either:
- Wrap the thread around your wrists two times OR
- Measure thread from your elbow to your finger tips.
Make sure that all of the threads you use are the same length.
In my experience, I usually make the length of the string longer, the last thing you need to do is find out once you have finished your bracelet, the bracelet is too short. For a standard bracelet I usually measure 60 cm then fold it in half.
I will demonstrate this in a later video, so keep tuned!
