I promised this tutorial some time ago now, so apologies for keeping you waiting! As ever, life is hectic on all fronts, but more so recently due to my teacher training application. It's official, I've jumped all the hurdles and wriggled through all the hoops in my path and starting next Spring, I'll be working towards becoming a secondary school history teacher! I am very excited and can't wait to open this new chapter in my life. But in the meantime, here's 'how to'...
When completed, work your next dc through the underside of your 1st two chains, as indicated by the arrows. You will need to flip your crochet away from you, so these loops are at the top of your work.
Then continue to flip your cord away from you with each stitch (as indicated by the white arrow), working alternate stitches on both sides of your cord. Each time work 1dc into the previous 2 loops (as indicated by the black arrows).
Once your cord is long enough to wrap around your wrist, cut the yarn and pull through the last stitch, leaving a long enough end to act as a lengthening piece for your bracelet. Cross the two ends over.
Knot the ends of your cord to stop them passing through the 5dc fastening, or attach a bead. If you want to make a bracelet in more than one colour, the same technique applies, just remember to work each dc through 2 loops of each colour (2 colour bracelet - 4 loops, 3 colour bracelet - 6 loops). If you'd like to include beads or crystals as I did in the previous post, thread the required amount onto your yarn before starting the cord. Move the bead into position after you have hooked the yarn through the 2 loops, before completing the double crochet. Any questions, just message me! Hoping to post a quick film of the process, just in case it isn't altogether clear ;) xxx
