Ladder Stitch Bracelets - free pattern

 
 
 
 
What a beautiful day we had today! Long walks out in the sun and coffee with a lake view - something I needed to let my mind roam freely.
Hands have been busy too - I made these easy bracelets which are going to be a part of a bigger piece. I named them ladder bracelets - it is obvious why, so if you are into friendship bracelets and want to try something different, this is a project for you. They work up fast and are really cute.
 
Pattern:
Use a 3 mm hook and DK yarn
Ch "x" number of stitches - even number of stitches. Measure the chain around your wrist until both ends meet.
Row 1: hdc in 3rd st from hook (initial chain). ch2 sk2 hdc in next st.
 
When you come to the end, chain the closure - for this you have to have a bead or a button ready so first try how many chains you'll need for it and chain the necessary amount.
Work the pattern from row1 on the other side.
When you come to the other end, sc 5 in the initial chain, sl st to end. Tie knots, weave ends. Fill the chain spaces with beads or leave as is.
 
Enjoy this and have a happy weekend!

Thank you Sigrid! The whole collection is based on yarn, textiles, beads (wooden, metal, platic) and I play with them to my heart's content!

Thank you for the pattern, dear Maya. I was already wondering how you got the beads in... Pretty bracelets, one can make them in every colour one likes, with matching beads or beads standing out... Great!
