Fierce Five

One of the of the coolest things about the five-strand design is how the flip-flop braiding style makes the color choice pop. Using (yes) five different colors, Grace Atwood of The Stripe recommends keeping the thread super flat for a nice wide stitch. This is perfect for kids who want to learn the art of making bracelets but aren’t quite ready for an all day project. Find out how to make this bracelet over at The Stripe.
