New macrame bracelet

So, here is a new bracelet that came out of the book Wired Beautiful. Sadly, this one is too big for me. I need to cut it back by a unit of knots. Guess this one will be gifted out or sold.

Things I learned include that you need 3×3 crimp beads for this. Of course, I learned that last night/ this morning, when I was trying to figure out how to get 6 strands through a 2×2. It just won’t work. Also, tack your central wires down. The book says to do the top, but I think you also need to do the bottom. That keeps you only having to deal with two sets of free floating wires. So, string on your central beads and just move them up as you need to.

Have fun!
