Dz99 0 Posted March 13, 2009 Report Share Posted March 13, 2009 Welcome back! Today we'll be making a cuff with ridges on top and bottom as opposed to flat top/bottomed.. here is the cuff I'll be making in this tutorial: Now before we start, if you're interested in learning how to make kandi cuffs, refer to my first tutorial http://www.glowsticking.com/forums/Kandi-Tut-1-t18211.html In the first tut you will learn basic kandi threading, which will be necessary for the piece we'll be making in today's tutorial. There are a couple simple differences between today's cuff and the flat top/bottomed one. First, the bead count is different.. this cuff is 32 beads around rather than 30 because the original pattern is in multiples of 4, not 3. As it was with the first cuff, if you have a really small wrist just leave off 1 set (making a total of 28 beads around), as well as if you have a larger wrist (36 beads). Let's begin. First cut off a really long piece of string and make a single kandi with the color scheme BLUE-YELLOW-BLUE-ORANGE. When you tie off this single, just like last time we're going to have the long string coming out of the end bead, in this case ORANGE. Begin threading a set of BLUE-YELLOW-BLUE through each ORANGE bead all the way around. You should now have a "double" kandi. As we did with the first cuff, when we finish a row we thread like we normally would (in this case through the ORANGE bead) and then "up the triangle" again so to speak.. in this case through the BLUE-YELLOW: Now thread BLUE-YELLOW-BLUE through the yellows like this: When you finish that "row" your cuff should look like this: Tie off the long string on this side of your cuff and then flip it over and thread BLUE-YELLOW-BLUE through the yellows on the opposing side now, with a string about the size of a single kandi: Your new cuff is now finished Link to post Share on other sites
