Round Lace Bracelet FREE Pattern

You can see me, but you can't print me... conveniently. The Round Lace Bracelet Pattern is one of my favorite free bead patterns. The bracelet pattern has been used many ways. You can even add a crystal in the middle. At the end of this pattern I have added several Customer images to show how creative they are and you can see how many ways it has been used. Hope you enjoy making this cute fun bracelet.

February 20, 2015, I have done an updated version of this bracelet which is faster and easier to do with the same look. You can find it here.




A = Miyuki11/0 seed bead

Start by waxing and stretching your thread, use Nymo D or C-Lon & a #11 or #12 beading needle. Tie in a “stopper” bead, leaving about an 8” tail and begin at step #1. *Fireline 4 or 6lb. crystal fishing line also works great for bead weaving.



1.
Pick up 14A.  Go with thread up through the 1st through 8th A beads added in this step.



2.
Pick up 11A. Go with thread down through the 8th, 9th, 10th & 11th A beads added in step A.

 

3. Pick up 4A. Go with thread around thread between the 1st & 2nd A beads added in step #2 or step #9. Continue with thread down through the 4th, 3rd & 2nd A beads added in this step.

I would have loved to try this, I really liked the picture on the Bead-Patterns newsletter, if only I could have seen the photos! For some reason, none of the photos on your free pattern pages show on my computer. Any ideas why?

I love this pattern, I've made it several times as a bracelet. I noticed the center can be made in a contrasting color to resemble a "ribbon" or a Christian "fish", so I've made pink ribbons for breast cancer and white fish in blue water. such an easy, beautiful, lacy pattern. You're an awesome designer Sandra!
