This bracelet is in honor of the little Western Diamondback rattlesnake we came across in our driveway this spring. (No, we didn’t kill it; but sprayed it with water until it went back into the brush across the street. Thankfully it worked.) I couldn’t help noticing his lovely markings and I designed a stylized version of his pattern.

Each of the bracelets in this collection is knitted using only the knit stitch! The beads are strung onto the size 3 crochet thread before knitting in a specific order (complete instructions for how to accomplish this are included). The beads are size 6/0 glass seed beads; I prefer Japanese Miyuki beads since they are so uniform. Bracelets each have a specific design in beads on the right side. The wrong side of each bracelet is one solid color of beads.

The materials are listed specifically as to bead # and how many you need. Also, there is no gauge listed. You need to knit ultra tight on the bracelets. Directions are included. Pattern are very easy to read colored charts for two sizes in each bracelet. Complete directions are included on how to read and work from charts.

I am always available to answer questions through email.

These lovely bracelets are smooth, weighty, fun, and comfy to wear. I always get good comments when I wear one, and often give them as gifts. You get the choice of adding a clasp (all details for this included in ebook) or sewing closed with an easy seam to wear as a “bangle”.
