Another Lark's Head Design

 A couple of weeks ago, I was perusing some of my early work.  One of them gave me some inspiration...

Not sure what to name this one - The design is based on Lark's Head Knots and lends itself rather nicely to using two different colors of cord.  Here are the two bracelets I have made so far.

First, my prototype -  I'm keeping this one for myself!


And the second one - Just need to make a couple more and photograph the steps for my upcoming book...


Anyone with any ideas what to call this design?

I love this. I'm a blue-green gal. I especially like the criss-cross in between the beads. The XOXO or hugs and kisses pattern. I just started making some bracelets to give away as gifts when I'm broke (lol)and got bored with the simple kiddy patterns. Are you going to post this pattern tutorial?!!

Thank you for your interest! I intend including the instructions for this design in the book I am working on - it may take some time, though.

I like the "hugs and kisses" reference you used - May I use it as a title for this design?

Yes.. on one condition... please email me as soon as you finish the instructions at ndavis304@gmail.com. In the meantime I'll try some other simple designs you have. Thanks. XOXO

By simple kiddy patterns I was bored with that I mentioned earlier, I was referring to friendship-style bracelets I learned as a kid. Not your beautiful designs. To me they look difficult but I will give them a try. I have searched a lot for hand-made jewelry and your creations are by far the most stunning!

I recommend trying the Free "Spirals Anklet or Bracelet" first, just to see if you like doing micro macrame. (See link for "Free Pattern Downloads" above) or contact me for a copy.

And thank you for naming this design! I will post here on my website when the book is finished, but I may forget to email you specifically...I have quite a few more senior moments these days than I used to have. I even have what seem to be "senior days"!
