Hello everyone ! This video is especially for beginners in Brazilian bracelets I will show you how to do the 4 basic knots I did quite recently a video about the 4 basic macrame knots so if you’re interested, you can go and see her … Let’s go for the 1st knot ! 1st knot: “the double forward knot ” it is symbolized by an arrow that goes to the right when you find it on a pattern it’s the left string that will work it will give his color to the knot as it is the leader, it passes over the other string the other string, I call it “the carrier” because it does not do anything ! it passes over by forming a kind of 4 And I get it back into the hole and I pull the string upwards, keeping the carrier tight down as it’s a double knot, I do it again a second time I’m doing a 4 I retrieve it in the hole and I pull up at the end of this knot the thread that worked is at the right of the carrier string 2nd knot: the double backward knot it is symbolized in the patterns by an arrow that goes to the left this time, it is the right string who will work and so it is this one that will give the color to the knot it will form 4 inverted passing over the carrier It’s a 4 in a mirror then we pick it up in the hole and pull it up keeping the carrier tight and since it’s also a double knot we do it again a second time 4 inverted I pick it up in the hole and pull up And when it’s finished it ends up left of the carrier 3rd knot: the forward backward knot it is symbolized by an arrow that goes first to the right then to the left it is left thread that will work and will give color to the knot and we start by making a simple forward knot that is, we make a 4 we get the thread back into the hole and pull up and then it is followed by a knot in reverse, that is, an inverted 4 we recover the thread in the hole we pull it up at the end of this knot, the thread is again in the same position as at the beginning The fourth knot: the backward forward knot it is symbolized by an arrow that goes first to the left then to the right it’s the right thread that will work it first forms an inverted 4 we always get the string in the hole and pull up Then we do a normal 4 And at the end of this knot the thread that worked is found in the same position as at the beginning And now you know how to do the 4 basic knots You will be able to make bracelets, I classified them by levels intermediate and advanced beginner and I put them in playlists for beginners the easiest is the bracelet “stripes” (rayures) and in second position you can continue with the bracelet “chevrons” Good bracelets! Have fun !
