This bracelet is written using US standards. The yarn for this bracelet is made from a T-Shirt cut into one long continuous ½” strip. For a tutorial on this please visit http://www.kits-crafts.com/t-shirt-yarn-tutorial.html#.Ua...

Just a couple of notes about tarn; not all tarns are made equal and the type of T-Shirt you use can greatly affect the outcome of your bracelet. I originally made this using a thinner shirt that was 60% cotton and 40% synthetic. Generally, I have found that the pure cotton tarns stretch and will give you a greater quantity, but are also harder to work with. That being said, if you are using a typical, run of the mill, 100% cotton T-Shirt, go down a bracelet size and use a G hook. This may still be tough, if you go up another size hook, go down another size for the bracelet. Also, practice a bit to get the hang of the tarn if you have never used it before.

Technically speaking, this bracelet is worked in the round as you will work stitches on the top and the bottom of the bracelet in a counterclockwise path.
