Double wave variegated alpha bracelet What you will need:

- 2 skeins of string in one color of your choice
- 1 multicolor skein
- something to attach the bracelet with, eg. safety pin, masking tape or a clip board


Double wave variegated alpha bracelet Cut some strings for the background strings, I used 12 but it depends on the thickness you want to achieve.

The length of the strings depends on the size of your wrist. So they need to be the size of your wrist + the length of the braids of endings you are going to use.

Also, tie in the whole skein in the color you have chosen and the whole multicolor skein.

Now lay your strings out in the following order:
One colored skein, the background strings, and the multicolor skein is the last.


Double wave variegated alpha bracelet Take the first string (one colored skein) and make a row of forward knots as you would do when making a regular alpha pattern.

Only knot over the background strings, do not make a knot over the multicolor skein.
