A Cuff with a Twist (of wire)

Here’s a cuff bracelet I made!

Cuff, worn

I’ve been playing with a few iterations of this bracelet for the last several weeks. After a few false starts (a too-fast increase rate and Stockinette edges that rolled) I came up with this seed stitch almost-triangle, and I’m really happy with how it turned out.

The cuff incorporates a hammered copper wire spiral, which serves as the closure as well as being decorative. I’m really intrigued by mixing metal with fiber, so this is my first go at it. I really want the metal to be a more integral part of the fabric in my next project.

If you want this free pattern, go grab it on Craftsy! Or, just check out the rest of the pictures below. :)
