TRIANGLE ENDS ON ALPHAS || Friendship Bracelets


Hi everyone my name is Masha Knots and
in this video I’m going to teach you how to make triangle ends to your alpha
bracelets So here I have my setup I have my base strings and I have my main
string which are all the same color so it might be a bit confusing but my main
string is attached to this strand I did not cut it because that’s how I like to
do my alpha bracelets whenever I have a string that I’m gonna be using a lot
which I am gonna be in this bracelet because this is the background color I
decide that it’s easier that I don’t cut it and I just use the entire strand so
what you’re gonna do first is you’re gonna make a forward knot with this main
string onto the entire strand of base strings so that’s what I’m gonna do now So once that is done that’s essentially
the first row what you’re gonna do now is you’re going to take a string out to
the right and one to the left so for the second row you’re going to take the main
string and you’re gonna do a backward knot onto the first string that you took
out then you’re gonna make a backward knot onto the strand of base strings and a backward knot on to the second
string that you took out so that is the second row down for the third row you’re
going to take out another string to the left and to the right and this time
you’re going to do forward knots so you’re gonna do one knot on each of the
strings that you took out you’re going to make a knot onto the strand and then one
knot on each of the strings that you took out on this side as well So once you get to the end of the row
you’re going to repeat the process you’re going to take out two strings one
to the right and one to the left and you’re going to do the same thing: a
backward knot onto this string a backward knot onto this string to this
string onto the entire strand and onto each of these strings as well So again
taking out the strings and repeating the process and you’re going to continue
doing this until you run out of strings inside the strand So there you go, that’s
your beginning triangle you’ll know when to stop making it when you are doing a
knot on each individual string and you don’t have a strand in the middle
anymore so from this point on you can start making a bracelet as normal and
that’s exactly what I’m gonna do and I’m gonna come back to you once I make the
end triangle. All right so now that I’ve finished my bracelet it’s time to do the
end triangle and I’m gonna be bringing all my strings to a point to form the
triangle so what I’ve done is I have separated the strings and I’ve left two
in the middle so you have to count however many strings you have you just
have to have the same amount here the same amount here and either two or three
in the middle depending on if you have an odd number of strings or an even
number of strings. So I have two and on the right strand I have done individual
knots on each of the threads now that I’ve gotten to the middle – I’m gonna do
a knot onto both of them at the same time before I continue the bracelet. Now
that I’ve done the knot in the middle I’m going to do individual knots on each
of the threads in the left strand right so I’ve finished the row and now to the
strings in the middle I’m going to bring one string that’s closest to it from the
left strand into the center and one string that is closest to it from the
right strand into the center. Now I’m going to do
individual knots on each of the strings on the left, I’m going to do one knot on
all of the strings in the middle and individual knots on each of the strings
on the right We are going to do it quite carefully because even though I do want
to bring all the strings to a point I don’t want to pull the bracelet too hard
to make it warp Alright so now I finished this row I’m going to do the
same thing again I’m going to fish out the middle strand and I’m going to bring
a string from the left strand into the center and a thread from the right
strand into the center and again individual knots on this one individual
knots on this one but a knot on all of these at the same time And I’m going to
continue doing that: bringing strings into the center and tying them together
until I run out of strings Whoops and there you go – a string just snapped but
thankfully I know what to do I’m just gonna add an extra string. Right, so I’ve
added a new string and I’m just gonna continue with that And once you get to
the end where you’ve run out of string to add to the center you’re just gonna
make one final knot onto the entire strand and from that point you can go
forward with making your ties so there you have it that’s how you make triangle
beginnings and ends to your alpha bracelets once again this pattern is
gonna be linked down below in case you want to make it and if you do ever make
anything based on any of my videos I always love to see your guy’s creations
so send them over to me at Instagram via direct messages or tag me on a post
that you make so thank you guys for watching and I’ll see you in my next
video, bye!

  1. Wish I would have done this with my alpha before I had started, but oh well ^_^ Great tutorial all the same, I'm sure going to do this in the future! And that's an awesome spacey type Pattern, lol I know what alpha I'm doing next!! ^_^

  2. I’m so glad you made this video! I’ve been waiting to do some of my alphas so I could incorporate these ends. Well explained and easy to understand as always! ☺️

  3. Also I wonder if there's a way to make the teardrop loop for alphas? Honestly since I've watched your tutorial on how to do it I've been obsessed and using it every chance I get!

  4. amazing video as always!!!! I'm about to try out that same alpha pattern that you did (the space one) and ill definitely be using these triangle ends!!!!

  5. Hello Masha, thank you for posting this tutorial, it's super helpful! I was wondering if you use this method for super thick bracelets with 20 base strings or more? I just started an alpha and I used your method, but now I worry that the tie strings will be too bulky. I've seen that many people make 4 tie strings in situations like that to avoid them getting too thick. Could you make a tutorial on how to make two triangle ends on each side for larger bracelets? I hope this isn't too confusing 😅

  6. Ooh I've seen a written tutorial for this one but honestly failed to follow it, your video makes it much more clear! I've also seen people start/end with a triangle that looks just like your triangle end for chevrons but without the space in the middle that separates it into two braids, I wonder how they're making that

  7. Can you make a loop and do triangle ends on both alpha and normal braclets as long as they have an even number of strings
