Step 6:

Make the scooby sinnet (chain of knotted scooby) as long as it needs to be. 

Step 7:

Tie a knot at the end or melt the end with a match.



  • Be careful. It is easy for you to get your string twisted. If that happens take out that row and redo it. It's as simple as that.
  • Beginning can be difficult and take lots of practice. Remember to have extra scooby just in case you ruin some.
  • If your fingers get tired or get blisters on them, take a break. You can always continue work on it later.
  • If you don't have super glue you can tie the ends together, but these can easily come out. You can also use a match to melt the ends together. Children should have adult supervision however.
  • It is possible to make a "seamless" bracelet. A safety pin is usually helpful in loosening the first square knot so that it can be connected.
