Bright kumihimo bracelet

Here is a quick thing I worked on recently. I bought some red, orange and yellow rattail cord a while ago to make a bracelet on request. Like a fiery/sunny pattern!

In this bracelet, I used four threads of orange, and two of red and yellow. I alternated the red and yellow patterns.

I opted to not use any bracelet ends, and tied off the ends with knots. You tie it with a square knot on the non-braided part.

By the way, I found a useful tip online for finishing bracelet ends! You can apply PVA glue to the cord ends to stop them from fraying, but you can also apply a dab of superglue to the inside of the knot to stop them from coming undone. Sounds simple, but very effective!

Materials needed:
– red/orange/yellow rattail

Tools needed:
– kumihimo disc
– PVA glue
