Step 1

This bracelet has been designed to fit wrist sizes of 15-17cm. You will need to use approx.1metre of elastic. (Don’t worry if you have plenty left over as we have overestimated the length).

You will need to start your bracelet by threading on a rondelle spacer bead first. Then follow the pattern below.
