Native Grass

Project and Sample by Linnea Lortsher

In California, the hills and baylands turn the softest of golden browns as spring turns to summer. And as the season continues, the bleached grasses are a striking contrast to the brown beneath. Using two contrasting colors, Linnea has created a cuff using Half-Tilas in a pattern of light and dark that sets off the design and highlights the delicate edging.
Linnea has added additional instructions to the handout that guide you in adapting herringbone weave to Half Tilas beads. Plus, new steps on how to macramé the button loop, what to do if you leave out a bead and other helpful tips. If you are new to this project, definitely watch the video and download the handout. Note: Half Tilas come in tubes of 7.8 grams (1/3 the quantity of a tube of Superduos) so the ingredients for this cuff (TWO tubes of Half Tilas) will net one bracelet.
