Tila Lace Bracelet

This project was inspired by the tile shape of the Tila beads. The pattern uses right angle weave and netting techniques and is a little simpler than traditional right angle weave because of the fact that the Tila beads have two parallel holes which make it easier to get in position to add the next round.  The bracelet is worked widthwise which makes it very easy to obtain a perfect fit for the wrist that it will adorn.
