Crochet from Outstanding Crochet follower Lorelie Dazo.

"Hi! My name is Lorelie Dazo.
I am a crochet artist and an aspiring designer. I usually work on a particular stitch combinations on my own and create designs from my mind.
I love summer. Because summer is a whole lot reason to bare skin and to wear laces.
For me, summer means crochet.
And here in Ginantsilyo, being fabulous starts with a stitch."

My new step-by-step crochet jewelry tutorial: Linen Crochet Bracelet.

The bracelet is not new, but I finally decided to make a tutorial when I got asked why I haven't yet.

The initial bracelet was this one:

It's made out of 8/2 Homestead cotton thread from Halcyon Yarn, which is too soft for jewelry I think. New bracelet is made out of 3 ply linen thread from YarnStories on Etsy.
I also replaced a button by a toggle clasp and used bigger beads.

So it took a day to make and photograph and another day to make a pdf on the computer.
The file is ready and goes to my folder "Patterns" until the day I get my Work Authorization Card. :))) hopefully in a term of 3 months.
It contains a chart, step-by-step pictures and written instructions. I don't think the necklace needs a tutorial, since there are the same motifs used.

Happy crocheting, my friends!
