A few years ago, a friend gave me 6 beautiful coconut buttons. I decided then that I was going to make a bracelet from them. I finally finished making it yesterday. [I tried photographing it on me, but my hands look too wrinkly!]
I stitched the buttons to a crocheted brown base band. The bracelet feels so comfy - chunky and yet delicate. Thanks E. I finally put them to good use.
The crocheted cuffs have done so well on my stand at the market. I have been experimenting with different colours and patterns. I usually use string, but have made some for myself from Vinni hand dyed cotton.
I've tried a new pattern too.
I love the daisy type stitch which originated from a vintage Hamlyn book on crochet for the family. The original pattern was 1 of three for hairbands and watch straps!I love reinterpreting these old patterns into a current application, and chuckling at others that are too scary to reappear!
