Chroniker Bracelet

The Chroniker Bracelet is worked in Ndebele (aka Herringbone stitch), originated by the Ndebele (En-duh-bel-ly) tribe of South Africa. It is so named because of its hourglass shape, ‘Chroniker’ is a synonym for the word hourglass. This bracelet has a supple drape, a unique texture worked into it with 'float beads' between the herringbone columns, and works up quickly because of its two-bead per stitch technique. If you are new to the Herringbone stitch, this project will have you hooked in no time. If you already work with the Herringbone stitch, a myriad of inspiration awaits with the 'float bead'.
