Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This bracelet is made with a right angle weave. If you have never done this weave, don't worry you will catch on quickly after the first three rounds.

Pattern Description:

You will love every bracelet you make from this tutorial! The color combinations are endless as I have demonstrated in the additional photos. You should have some beading experience or at least a beginner with patience and persistence to succeed!

In this 20 page tutorial with photos I will show you step by step how easy it is to make this Caterpillar Bracelet. The right angle weave is a basic and repetitive beading technique. With a very simple overlay of a criss cross pattern this bracelet makes a bold statement. A bonus is my technique for creating a strong and secure closure for the clasp.
