This week, I’m taking a quick break from the Egyptian Gods series challenge with a simple herringbone cuff. It was one of those middle of the night ideas that couldn’t be ignored. I was in the mood for stripes, and that’s all there was to it. I knew there had to be black and white, and I wanted to contrast that with perpendicular stripes in other opaque colors. After some tasting and shuffling of different colors, I finally decided on medium blue and light olive green.
As I was putting together the first two rows in a double ladder to start the bracelet, I was caught by a sudden urge to just keep adding columns and make a really wide cuff. It’s been awhile since I’ve made a bracelet that was really bold in this way, and it seemed like a great idea at the time. We’ll see how I feel about this idea after I’ve been at it for a week!
