I have made quite a few bangles and bracelets with tubular chenille stitch, and used it as a rope for necklaces, but have only just come across the idea of flat chenille stitch. The instructions I used were by Jean Cox on the Interweave website – thank-you Jean! This was just an experiment, but I was pleased with the result, so finished it off as a bracelet by adding a bezelled 8mm chatonĀ as a button for a clasp. (The button does not look quite right in the pictures because of the angle of the camera but it is in fact central on the bracelet.) A simple loop of beads at the other end goes round the button. I also added some edging beads as I don’t like to see the thread along the edges.
