Retired - National Pride Bracelet

PROJECT B169
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Intermediate
Show your national pride by wearing the good ol' red, white, and blue in the form of this fun square- stitched bangle.
Instructions
  1. If you are not already familiar with square stitch, click here to watch our instructional video before proceeding. Single thread about three yards of Wildfire onto your needle.
  2. Add a stopper bead to your thread, about eight inches away from the end.
  3. Thread on three 4mm Miyuki cube beads; one red, one white, and one blue. This is your first row. Square stitch each consecutive row with matching colors on top of the previous row (i.e. red on top of red, white on white, blue on blue).
  4. Stitch the bracelet until it is just about as wide as the widest point of your hand (our bracelet contains sixty rows).
  5. When your bracelet is long enough, join the two ends together and continue to weave around the entire bracelet, strengthening it, and making it so that the decorative white stitches are seen.
  6. When you feel as though your bangle has been sufficiently reinforced, tie an overhand knot between two threads and weave in the remainder of your working thread. Trim off this end, add the needle to your tail, and weave that into the bracelet as well.
