The bracelet consists of 16 rows (the total length with the clasps is 17.5 cm). The end rows include projections made from the R8 that are used for gluing onto the clasps. Pay attention to the orientation of the CO during sewing; the rounded section should be at the top.

Step 1

Start the first row with the projections. Secure the initial R8 - thread the line through it one more time. Continue up to the CO according to the drawing. Sew one side around the CO. Then move to the second CO. Thread the line through the projections 2x; the middle one should be done at the end of sewing the row. Tie off the line and pull it into the holes.
