CHEVRON STITCH PATTERN
Row 1: 2 sc into 2nd ch from hook, *1 sc into next 4 chs, skip next 2 chs, 1 sc into next 4 chs, 3 sc, into next ch; repeat from * ending 2 sc into last ch.
Row 2: Turn, ch 1, 2 sc into first sc, *1 sc into next 4 sc, skip next 2 sc, 1 sc into next 4 sc, 3 sc into next sc; repeat from * ending 2 sc into last sc.
With any color, ch 24. Work in Chevron Stitch Pattern, changing colors as desired (we changed colors every 2-4 rows), working in ends as you go.
Work no more than 10 total rows with any one color, until pieces measures 10" long. Fasten off, leaving a 25" tail.
NOTE: If using less than 11 colors, please note that approximately 60 rows will be worked, so budget the number of rows per color accordingly.
Match up the short ends of the completed piece, with right sides facing. Thread 25" tail through tapestry needle, and seam these two ends together using the Ladder stitch – DO NOT CUT YARN.
Wrap piece around bangle with right sides facing, and in this position, continue to use yarn tail and Ladder stitch to create an invisible seam that will sit on the inside of the bangle. Secure all ends. Enjoy!
