Ultimate Throwback Herringbone Bracelet

PROJECT B2406
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
The bright neon colors of SuperDuos makes funky stripes of herringbone in this cool throwback 80's bracelet.
Instructions
  1. Thread a needle with a length of Fireline that you are comfortable working with. As you work, you will need to tie off and add new thread.
  2. Add a stopper bead about 12 inches from the tail.
  3. Please watch our video: How to Stitch Herringbone with Two Hole Beads.
  4. From what you learned in the video, pick up one druk, one blue superduo, one druk, one orange superduo, one druk, one lilac superduo, one druk, and one lime superduo.
  5. Turn the thread around by going through the second hole of the lime superduo. Now pick up one druk and one lime superduo, and go into the next druk and up through the hole of the lilac superduo.
  6. Pick up one druk and one lilac superduo, and go into the next druk and up through the hole of the orange superduo.
  7. Pick up one druk and one orange superduo, and go into the next druk and up through the hole of the blue superduo.
  8. Pick up one druk and one blue superduo, and go into the next druk and back through the second hole of that blue superduo.
  9. You will continue to weave to your desired length (note: the clasp will add about 1/2 inch) while keeping the rows of blue, orange, lilac and lime. Please see the photo to help you with the pattern if you need to.
  10. To add the clasp, weave your tail along the thread path of the end row and have your needle come up thru the second druk bead along the edge. Pick up one druk thread on one loop of the slide clasp. Pick up another druk and weave your needle down thru the adjacent silver superduo and up thru the next druk. Pick up one druk thread on the second loop of the slide clasp. Pick up another druk and weave your needle down thru the adjacent silver superduo. You can weave through this pattern again to secure the clasp. Once you have done so, tie in and weave in your tail.
  11. Move to the next side and repeat the above to attach the other half of the clasp. Tie off and weave in your thread.
