Tried It: Friendship Bracelets!

My friendship-bracelet skills were a little atrophied after (at least) a couple decades of disuse . . . but in celebration of the soon-to-be-here slow, lazy days of summer, it was time to dust them off. I found a great tutorial (with photos) for the “summer camp chevron” bracelet at Honestly WTF.

Molly’s Sketchbook at purlbee.com also offers ideas for fun color combos (fluorescent) and monochrome (friendship bracelet meets mature, grown-up restraint!).

I’m sure there are ways to make clasps or ties for removable bracelets but that betrays the whole idea of the bracelet, which is that if you truly, deeply value your sisterhood then you tie the thing to your wrist until death do you part, or at least until it is a sorry string, bleached and frayed from sun and salt water.
