How to make a rosary?

How to make a rosary with your own hands

First, you need to find out how many knots your rosary will have. Orthodox rosaries (modern) consist of 100 knots, divided into quarters (ie, into groups of 25 or 10) with the help of large knots. Select a material. You can use woolen, cotton yarn, nylon cord or satin ribbons for the cord (several pieces). Knots on Orthodox rosaries begin to knit from the rightmost nodule, moving gradually to the right. Every tenth node needs to be made larger to mark the so-called tens. And every 25 nodes need to be made even larger, i.e. triple, thus denoting quarters. Finish the weaving by closing the circle in a large knot, so that after the closing knot both tails hang down.On these tails, 3 more knots should be made, after which the Orthodox cross, bought in advance at any church or temple, should be tied to the rosary. If some moments remain unclear, a more detailed video of how to make a rosary can be found on the Internet.

How to make rosary flip

Very often, the rosary is used as a decoration or fashion attribute. They can be worn on the wrist, neck or attached to a mirror in the car. A vivid example of such beads is a “snake” or flip rosary. Such beads have a tape form. If you decide to make such a rosary, decide on the style, width and length. Plexiglas, wooden lath or bread can be used as a material. Let's take a look at how to make flip rosaries out of bread. Take the crumb of rye or wheat bread of the lowest quality (2-3 grade) and mash well in your hands. This may take about 5 hours. Gradually add sugar and knead further. The mass should be similar to clay. From the resulting mass we sculpt the elements of future rosaries (balls, squares, triangles) and string them on a fishing line.
