Greens Galore Mosaic Bracelet
|Total Cost||= £9.05|
Cut approx. 2 metres of Nymo thread and condition with wax before threading the needle. If you run out of thread during the design, don’t worry, just attach a new piece and remember to work the ends of the thread into the design before continuing.
ROW 1. Leave a 6 in tail, thread down through the first hole of an A Bead (Dark Green Bead). Thread up through the second hole in this bead and pick up a B Bead (Mint Green Bead), threading down through the first hole. Pass back up through the first hole of the B Bead to secure the two, side by side. Pass up through the second hole of the B Bead.
Pick up a C Bead and pass down through its first hole. Pass through the second hole of the B Bead and back down through the first hole of the C Bead (Dark Green Bead). Pass up through the second hold of the C Bead.
You have now completed Row 1 and are ready to start Row 2. All subsequent rows are the same as Row 2. Remember that from Row 3 onwards, you need to pass the needle through the new bead and the bead directly below for them previous row to make sure that the new beads are secured in place.
ROW 2. Pick up 1 C Bead and let it lie above the bead below so that the two holes match up with the ones on the previous row. Pass the needle down through the second hole of the C Bead and all the way through the C Bead added in the previous row. Bring your needles up through the nearest hole of the B Bead on Row 1.
Pick up a B Bead. Pass down through the nearest hole in the C Bead just added and the C Bead in the previous row. Pass up through the nearest hole in the next B Bead and up through the hole in the last A Bead added
ROW 3. Turn work over. Repeat steps 5 – 7 until you have 28 rows (or desired length) remembering to turn the work over before you start each new row. Use tail left on the first row to attach one end of the clasp and match the second side up evenly before attaching the second half of the clasp. Secure by stitching through holes and the top bead a few times before tying off and trimming threads.
