Project Eighty Nine: Mr. B’s Birthday Bracelet
At the weekend we celebrated Mr. B’s birthday, and one of the things I made him was a friendship bracelet. I made him one last year and he has worn it permanently ever since, and it is becoming a little thread-bare so I had to make him a replacement (on request) before the other one fell off. Mr. B really likes waves so I always use a wave pattern, using just two colours and 11 strands of thread to make his bracelets. I follow this pattern here, and be warned, if you want to make one, it is pretty complicated and I relied on the pattern the whole way through. This bracelet took me about three and a half hours to make, snatched in little bursts during my lunch break at work as I didn’t want Mr. B to see it before his birthday.
Here’s a photo of the new bracelet (in the paler colours) as well as the old bracelet, which you can see looks quite worn now! Mr.B will keep the old one on until it falls off naturally. You can see in the photo the old one has stretched a little bit (it was the same size as the new one to start with) and all the knots are squashed together.
