Bordered zig-zag pattern

Coral snake pattern

2 50-inch brown strings
2 40-inch black strings
1 40-inch yellow string
2 40-inch red strings

Legend: L=left, R=right

Arrange the strings so that they are in this order:
coral snake pattern

  1. Starting with string #1, knot a turnaround stitch (L-to-R, R-to-L) around string #2 to make the L border.
  2. Make regular double knots with string #2 onto strings 3, 4, 5, and 6.
  3. With thread #7, knot a turnaround stitch (R-to-L, L-to-R) onto string #2 (which is now the string adjacent to #7). This is the right border.
  4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 until you reach string #6 (the last red string), making sure you knot a turnaround stitch at the end of each four regular double knots.
  5. Throughout steps 1-4, you knotted going from L to R, after the last red string or the 6th string in the illustration above you will now knot from R to L.  
  6. You will basically do the same thing, but in the opposite direction. With string #7, knot a turnaround stitch onto its adjacent string.
  7. Make four double knots with the 2nd string from R onto 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th.
  8. Make a turnaroud knot.
  9. Then repeat the entire process until the desired length.


  1. Dont forget to tie a turnaroud knot at the end of every four rows of regular double knots. The turnaround knots create the border.
  2. In this pattern, the coral snake zigzags at reds and blacks.

Here’s the bracelet:
