DIRECTIONS:

Bracelet (for approximately 7-1/2" bracelet)
1.
Thread DMC Tapestry size 24 needle with DMC Floss 518 leaving a 5" tail
2. Thread 150 beads onto DMC Floss. Note: each inch of knitted floss requires approximately 24 beads, so thread on more beads for a longer bracelet.
3. Using directions included and the disk with 4 prongs, knit the DMC Floss on the Clover French Knitter and slide a bead on after each stitch. Knit a length of approximately 6" – 6-1/2", then finish off.
4. To finish both ends, slide a bead cone on the end, then attach a jump ring by threading the thread tail through the jump ring then back through the knitted piece a few times until the jump ring is secure. Finish the thread tail by knotting through the knitted piece under the bead cone. Clip excess thread. Attach one part of the toggle clasp to the jump ring at one end and the other part of the clasp to the jump ring on the other end.
