Scoubidous are hollow plastic strings that can be twisted and knotted into patterns. Crafters use these pieces to make jewellery such as necklaces and bracelets. Short strips of knotted scoubidou make key chains. Different colours and patterns combine to create a wide range of looks for scoubidou crafts. Young scoubidou crafters collect, share and trade their scoubidou patterns.

    Making the Triangle Knot

  1. 1

    Line up all three strings together. Wrap one end in a loop and push all three ends through the loop. Pull the ends to form a granny knot.

  2. 2

    Hold the knot. Let all three strings fall in different directions.

  3. 3

    Place the red string over the white string, leaving a red loop.

  4. 4

    Fold the white string over the red loop, forming a second loop.

  5. 5

    Thread the blue string over the white loop and under the red loop.

  6. 6

    Pull all three strings.

  7. 7

    Repeat Steps 3 through 6 until the pattern is as long as you wish.

    Complete the triangle

  1. 1

    Place the white string under the red string, then thread the white string though the centre of the previous knot.

  2. 2

    Place the red string under the blue string and thread it through the centre of the previous knot.

  3. 3

    Place the blue string under the white string and thread it through the centre of the previous knot.

  4. 4

    Pull all three strings to tighten the knot. Cut any excess scoubidou with scissors.

Tips and warnings

  • While learning a new stitch, use different colour strings. This helps keep the strings separate and prevents errors.
