I designed this bracelet as a way to use up sock yarn scraps. I used a simple lace pattern and positioned beads down the center. I framed the lace with garter stitches on either side, to which I also added beads, and used garter stitch button bands on the ends. Each bracelet uses less 10g or less of yarn, and looks good in both solid and variegated yarns, though the pattern shows more clearly in more solid yarns. You can easily further customize the look with your bead and button choices, ranging from bold and contrasting to clear and subtle. You can even leave out the beads if you prefer.
