I am new to bracelet making so I started with the simplest pattern–a friendship bracelet in the candy stripe pattern.

Everything is going well except the bracelet twists as I do each row. What am I doing wrong?

How to Stop Curling Friendship Bracelets
by: Christine

The biggest reason for twisting is that you are not doing two knots each time.

Are you doing double knots? My bracelets used to curl because I only did one knot.

Now that I do 2 knots, my bracelets don’t curl.

You might want to review theĀ forward knot and backward knot instructions. If you notice, each knot is really a double knot.

Another possibility is that you are knotting too tight.
