If you want to get summer-proof and colourful, this is the perfect pattern. You can whip these lovely bracelets up in under an hour.
I’ve used Scheepjes Maxi Sweet Treat (100% cotton, 25g/240m) in the following colours:
- Bracelet 1: Colour 238 and 786
- Bracelet 2: Colour 280, 208, 281, 115, and 519.
- 2 x 12mm silver lobster clasp
- 4 x 6mm silver eyelets
- 2 x 9 x 4mm silver cord ends
Scheepjes Maxi Sweet Treat is also available as Scheepjes Sugar Rush, the 50g variant.
1.5mm (US size 0/1.5mm)
Bracelet 1 (with the pink arcs) is 18cm. Bracelet 2 (with the 5 colours) is 17cm because the moss stitch pulls inwards a bit.
