So Sari...Ribbon Bracelet

So sorry, time got away from me last month...for those that have moved and have tried to unpack and organize a house in a month hopefully can relate. With apologies, I present a very cool knitted braclet from Tilli Tomas.

One size fits most; cuff - 6.5” circ., bangle - 7” circ.

1 skein Tilli Tomas Sari Ribbon (60 yds/100 g; 90 % silk, 10% cotton)
*Note: 1 skein will make two bracelets
#7 US ( mm) needles
Tapestry needle
CO 12 and work in St. st. until strip measures approx. 7", or a half-inch larger than the circumfrence of your wrist. Join active stitches to CO edge by picking up 12 st. along CO edge, and BO using 3-needle
bind off. (Alternatively, BO, then seam to CO edge using mattress stitch.) Curl top and bottom (only two remaining long edges) of tube inward to meet. Seam all around using mattress stitch, then flip
bracelet so seam faces inside of wrist.

CO 11 and work all rows (RS and WS) as follows:
{*K1, P1* until 1 before end, K1.}
Work in this pattern (seed stitch) until strip measures approx. 6.5” long, or the circumference of your
wrist. BO.
Using a tapestry needele and extra Sari yarn, lace open edge of cuff together like sneakers, starting in
the middle and working to each edge, so that you have two laces with two bows. Tie to close.
