Recently I wondered about the interlaced split rings. Muskaan made a very good tutorial on his blog, but I never see a pattern that uses this technique.
Muskaan kindly indicated publications in which this technique is used to make bookmarks. By adding pearls, I told myself that it could make a bracelet with 3 rows of split rings.
So I started my interlaced split rings following Muskaan’s tutorial, that is to say with 6 shuttles … a real nightmare ٩(⚙ȏ⚙)۶
I quickly realized that I could do this in another way, much less difficult: First make a first row of split rings, then a second, and interlaced the third using Celtic shuttles.
For the 3rd row of split rings, proceed as follows:
This will be done in the same way for the next ring, but the reverse will have to go back to the back of the work.
Conclusion of this experiment:
- First, I didn’t really do what I thought at the start.
- Then, we can say that I used Vega 40 because I wanted to at the time, but using a thicker wire would better highlight the interlacing.
- On the other hand, the choice of the color of the threads and beads is far from being clever. I think there would be much better to do to make this pattern interesting.
- And finally, I apologize because due the trial and error at the start, my work lacks neat. It is far from impeccable, but I share my experience with you in the hope that it can be useful to someone. As for me, I don’t want to do it again to improve for the moment. ₊⚛⁺(ؔ꒨◡ؔ꒨)ᵌ
