I bought some gorgeous hand blown glass beads from a local artist this past December. They make beautiful lampwork beads and amazing glass masterpieces. (see store here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/NomadCraftsEtc ) I hadn't found a use for them yet, so I decided to try something new. Here's what I came up with. Hope you enjoy and make some too. :)
Spring Flowers Cuff
COPYRIGHT Jennifer Kaye 2012
Worsted Cotton Yarn
button for closure
large bead(s) (optional)
Loosely chain 32. (check to see if it goes around your wrist...if too small, add 6 more chains and check.
If too large, subtract 6 chs and check)
Row 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, *sk next 2 ch, (dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc) in next ch, sk next 2 ch, sc in next ch;
repeat from * across, turn.
NOTE: If you are adding a single bead, you do so on your 3rd sc on this row.
If you are adding more beads, do so on every sc this row.
Row 2 Ch4 (counts as dc, ch1), dc in first sc, sk next dc, sc in next dc,
*(dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc) in next sc, sk next dc, sc in next dc;
repeat from * across, ending with a (dc, ch1, dc) in last sc, turn
Row 3 Ch1, sc in first dc, *(dc, ch1, dc, ch1, dc) in next sc, sk next dc, sc in next dc;
repeat from * across, ending with a sc in 3rd ch of turning ch.
Do not turn.
SS down same side until you reach the center of cuff, (I think I only ss like 2-3 times) then,depending on the size of your button,
ch 3-5, then slip stitch across the rest of the width of your cuff (2-3 more sl st) Finish off and weave in ends.
On the opposite side as the ch loop, sew on closure button of your choice, finish off. Enjoy.
