This looks amazing. Thank you very much for posting this.
Just love the look of this bracelet and am hoping to give it a try soon… thank you for posting this.
really looks great I have a few granddaughters who will just love it
i like it but what type of clasps do you put on it? is their a way to do a braid tie off for it to tie??
I used lobster clasps for my bracelet. I would recommend using a clasp or just sewing the bracelet together. I don’t know how to make a braid tie off, but you can give it a try. :)
this would be pretty for spring in baby yarn in pastel colors! or if a wedding is coming up, how about making colors to match the bride’s maid’s dresses?
The question is what does “bring down” mean?
No problem, here is a website showing how to knit with beads:
P.S. Remember you only have to thread 9 beads onto your yarn for the bracelet. [3 pony beads, 3 alphabet beads, and 3 more pony bead (or in any order you’d like)] :)
One more thing, you can omit knitting with the beads and simply sew them on later, if you find that easier. ;)
“Beaded Bracelet | Blog of Joy” ended up being a perfect
blog post. In case it possessed a lot more pictures this could be
even better. Take care -Lily
I love your bracelet pattern. Have made four so far and am going to make at least one more for Christmas. I use metal silver-tone alphabet beads and toggle clasps from JoAnn. I either spell out the name or an inspirational word, such as believe.
Thank you so much for sharing with me about this, Brenda! That makes my day! :) I’m so glad that the pattern has been such a help to you in making these sweet gifts.
