The total length of this design from end to end of ultra suede cuff should be your wrist size plus a little bit (1/4-1/2 inch more). The design reads best if it is up against your wrist rather than falling too loosely. Since you cannot take the bracelet off to measure while it is still on the loom, knowing your wrist measurement beforehand is so important. If you need to, you can always make the width of your ultra suede cuff a bit wider for added length. Please watch the video before beginning.
Sometimes it is fun to just bead weave without a pattern. Or, if you are like Janice, find following a pattern challenging. We are calling this method “Pebbling” because it reminds us of the little stones of various sizes set into stone walls or walkways. A quick trick to pebbling is mixing all your beads up and picking them up randomly onto your needle. Janice suggests: the next bead you string onto your needle should not be the same as the last....that way you get an assortment. Also scan the rows you have just completed to make sure you are including all your choices of beads. “You can run out of a color in your bowl and not realize it for a few rows, but basically there are no rules!”
