I am making a Candy-stripe friendship bracelet, and as I keep knotting, the bracelet is twisting. Is this normal?

Too Tight

I think you are pulling the knots too tight or unevenly. You might want to make them looser. Just take your time.

Twisting Friendship Bracelet

No, it’s not really normal, but its a common problem for a friendship bracelet to twist. 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.
