Step one: Cut material into two 2-yard lengths. Fold both pieces 18-inches from the end. You now have two 18-inch strands and two 6-foot strands. Gather the strands together and knot 4-inches from the fold. Tape the knotted end to the work surface or pin to a knotting board.
Step two: Position the two short strands in the center and tape to the work surface or pin to a knotting board.
Step three: Make four square knots. For help making square knots please visit The Square Knot in the Handy Tips section in the Learning Center. Remove the tape from the two center strands and thread a 5mm square glazed porcelain bead in Catalina onto both strands. Re-tape.
Step four: Make two square knots, add a Catalina bead, two square knots, Catalina bead, three square knots and the light blue half flower stoneware tube bead. Reverse the steps to complete the pattern.
Step five: Trim the tails so that they are even. Gather two strands and make a knot approximately 1½ inch from the end. Thread a 5mm square glazed porcelain bead in harvest onto both strands and then knot to secure. Repeat for the other two strands.
Step six: Repeat step five to finish the other end of the bracelet.
