NYLON staffers created unique, DIY projects using denim in honor of our annual Denim Issue. Check back here every day of August to see a new project.
What you’ll need:A pair of jeans or two (you’ll want the whole length of the leg and may want to vary the colors)
Directions:Step 1: Cut three very long pieces, about one-inch wide, from each pair of jeans.
Step 2: Put them side by side, alternating colors: one light, one dark, one light, etc...
Step 3: Make a knot at the top of all of them together, leaving an inch or so loose at the top.
Step 4: Loop the top part around a door knob so that it’s easier to pull the pieces.
Step 5: Start making knots from left to right. Hold the left string straight, pull the right string out like a triangle, wrap the right string over the left, and pull through to make a knot. (Tip: It’s all about holding the under string very tight.)
Step 6: Keep going line by line until you run out of fabric.
Step 7: Make a knot at the end.
Step 8: Wrap around your wrist and attach the ends. Voilà!
