blue cotton two layer basket weave rope bracelet 3213

 More of the basket weave work this one with a two layer pattern. The single over-under weave is done in an extra soft #48 hand dyed cotton twist mixed colors of pastel blue and grey.

The over 4 - under 2 pattern is done in a light royal blue cord.

The over weave creates a strong horizontal (longitudinal?)  effect.
 Ecru weft cords help define the pattern with color contrast. There are four colors used in this design.

Smaller size 7 1/2" (191 mm) with a little bit of natural stretch, not a s much as the bias weave turks head knot bracelets.

             only one available here
