With friendship bracelets making a comeback, I decided to revisit my youth and jump on the bandwagon at a Friendship Bracelet Party held at The Workroom during Lizzie House’s visit.

The colourway I decided upon was inspired by the shirt I was wearing at the time – an unexpected combination of pink, red, orange and purple.

To make it more challenging, of course, I decided to use a Japanese pattern book, because if you’re going to make a friendship bracelet, you might as well make a difficult one. It took about four starts to actually figure out how to accurately interpret the grid system, but in all honesty, it is not a particularly difficult pattern once you get going.

And if you’re in the market for an inexpensive, compact project that travels well, I would definitely recommend starting a friendship bracelet.
