I have been wanting to make this for some time but couldn’t find brass hexnuts anywhere. You could use twine or some other type of string but I used tshirt yarn. Cut three pieces of the tshirt yarn about twenty inches long and knot them together. You then start braiding. Braid about an inche then braid a hexnut onto each strand you wrap over. You will need to hold that hexnut in place while you work on the next – three hands would be helpful but two is possible. I did it with the assistance of a clipboard holding the braid. After braiding on about 13-14 hexnuts, braid another inch and knot it. Leave enough on each end to tie the ends together.
For my bracelet I chose purple – and here it is.
