“What started out as a four wrap quickly morphed into eight because the materials just kept demanding my attention…they just told me to keep going! I can’t explain it any other way.
I really felt like I was walking down a garden path.”
With a 6-1/2 inch wrist, the total length of the sample is 55-1/2 inches including the button loop and measuring from the middle of the button. Remember to try it on as you bead. Since the wraps live on top of each other, it’s important to allow at least an extra inch or two for length; it’s not like doing a single or even a 4 wrap. You need length so the wraps can overlap.
And be sure to leave extra “air” when laddering the chain section. If you don’t, the chain will kink on you. “I made the common mistake of not leaving enough space before and after I laddered the chain. Since laddering is done on a straight line, it seemed fine BUT then the chain and leather curve to wrap and that’s where I could have left more space.” ~janice
