The bracelet consists of three rows. The completely free-lying bracelet is about 18 cm long.
Preparing the line
The length of the line is two arm-lengths. Thread the end of the line into the eye of the needle. Move the needle to the middle of the line. Tie the ends of the line together. Tie them with three knots, one after the other. String 1x cup tip. Place the knot between the cup tip's cups. Close the cup tip. String 1x R10.
Stringing the row
A total of 40x Ch and 12x PB8 and PB5 are strung on the line. They are divided into several sequences and each row is slightly different.
Row 1 – 12x Ch (a mixture of 9x veined orange and 3x orange), 6x PB8, 12x Ch (a mixture of 9x mottled yellow and 3x yellow), 12x PB5, 12x Ch (a mixture of 9x mottled red and 3x red), 6x PB8 and 4x Ch (a mixture of 3x veined orange and 1x orange).
Row 2 – 4x Ch (a mixture of 3x mottled yellow and 1x yellow), 12x PB5, 12x Ch (a mixture of 9x mottled red and 3 red), 6x PB8, 12x Ch (a mixture of 9x veined orange and 3x orange), 6x PB8 and 12x Ch (a mixture of 9x mottled yellow and 3x yellow).
Row 3 – 10x Ch (a mixture of 8x mottled red and 2x red), 6x PB8, 12x Ch (a mixture of 9x veined orange and 3x orange), 6x PB8, 12x Ch (a mixture of 9x mottled yellow and 3x yellow), 12x PB5 and 6x Ch (a mixture of 5x mottled and 1x red).
The Chilli stringing. String the Ch through the outer hole on the arch from the outside. String 2x R10 (in the same color as the strung Ch). Thread the line through the central hole in the dimple.
The bead stringing. String 1x bead. String 1x brown R10. Thread the line back through the bead.
Completing the row
String 1x R10. String 1x cup tip. Place three knots between the cups. Gradually tie them one on the other. The knotting is more difficult at this end. Try and place the loop of the new knot under the previous one. Close the cup tip.
Twist the hooks on the cup tips using the needle nose pliers. Grip them between the points of the pliers and twist them around the points.
Open them slightly. Hang the fastening in the loops and close them.
