right angle weave rope bracelet 3992

 3 mm cotton braid is used to build this rather simple but interesting rope bracelet. The weft is 9 wraps around a circular mold and the warp is the long ends placed in a double over-under crossing pattern.

As you can see the end wraps create a textured edge and the double overlap a nice hefty thickness.

This example is 8" inside circumference about right for an adult hand.
 A single piece of cord is used here but endless color variations are possible by using hand dyed  segments like these:

pink and purple
sea glass colors 
thick green and blue cuff
