Micro Macrame bracelets

So recently did another couple of fabulous classes at The Beaderie.  These ones were both for micro macrame bracelets.

The first class was really easy as, once the button loop had been made, it was just square knots.  The effect was really pretty though.

I made this bracelet a few days after the class, just to ensure I could remember what I should be doing!  I really like the yellow and blue beads for the summer.

The other two bracelets were made during the class.

The second class was a bit more complicated as it involved double half hitch knots.  Once you've done a few repeat patterns though, it's really easy to get the hang of.  You just need to remember which hand the holding cord is in! 

The 'wave' pattern has a really pretty effect.  Just noticed that the piccie on the left though is the wrong way round.  Like knitting, there is a right and a wrong side of this bracelet.  The top piccie shows the right side, so you can see the knotting cord.

These are two very simple versions of micro macrame.  There are some really complicated patterns out there, but I think I'm a long way off those!
