How to make a braiding wheel friendship bracelet?

Gather all 16 strings and tie a knot, leaving about an inch of string on the end. Tie a second knot over this to make a nice bulky knot. Insert the string through the wheel, knot end first. The goal here is to have pairs of strings evenly spaced between the wheel, that means with two notches separating each pair.

How do you close a braiding wheel bracelet?

Detach the strings from the wheel and tie a knot at the end of the braid. Leave a little space (about the side of the big knot you started with) and then tie another knot. Now push the big knot through the two knots to close the bracelet.

Where does the thread go on a braiding wheel?

When you pull a right string down it goes on the right side of the set of strings on the bottom. When you move the left string up it goes on the left side of the strings at the top. It is tempting to want to make the thread cross over and to put a right one to the left side (or a left one to the right side) but just don’t do it.
