W is for Wrap Bracelet
I’ve been very into wrap bracelets lately; you get the look of multiple bracelets with only one.
I’ve made a few this week. The first one I used 20 lb hemp and tho I like the look of it, it’s a pain to string the beads and crochet with.
So I made another using my new favorite size 3 cotton thread. Ahh! Much easier.
I found these little cross beads so I used it as my focus but of course you can use any bead for a focus, or you don’t even need a focus, all the beads can be the same.
First string 40 e-beads onto thread, then the cross bead, then 40 more e-beads. Thread a two hole button (or a shank button works too) onto the thread and tie a double knot. Now using a size D crochet hook make a loop next to the button and chain 3, * slip a bead next to the hook and chain 2. Repeat from * having one plain chain and one chain with a bead in it until you’ve chained up all your beads. Then chain 8 and slipstitch in 8th chain from hook . This is your loop for the button. Weave in your ends.
Now wrap it around your wrist about 5 times and voila!
