How do YOU measure your string?

12 posts in this topic

This has been running through my mind lately and I want to know how do other people measure string for their multi's and etc. etc.

 

For me singles are just wrap the string around my wrist once and then give a little extra so tying it off would be easier.

 

For multi's I wrap it, I think....haven't done any in a long time, 3 times around my arm for 1 row.

 

Peyote.....psssh yeah right measure string length?

 

So how do you do it?

How many times i can wrap it around my hand. I like to be able to wrap it twice, and then hold it, that works best for me =D.

 

Makes it easy to shotguns and do other stuff lol

I usually do the same thing; loop it around my wrist then add some extra room for tying off. It always feels like I'm wasting string, though...

Yeah, there is no real easy way. For singles, I string the beads on, tie off the end, then cut off the excess string. minimizes waste.

i dnt measure at all, well not for singles.

the method i use, is to organize the beads and then put it on the string without cutting it off from the bead-string-circle-thing.

and then i wrap it around my wrist to see if it fits.

then i cut it. :lol:

That's a good idea. I may have to steal that....

I just guess really.

Unless I'm making one for my boyfriend. Then I have to wait until I'm with him so I can measure his wrist.
