slip stitching around a completed crocheted bracelet

bjamesMarch 22, 2007

Does anyone know how to "slip stitch" around a finished crocheted beaded bracelet? I was told that this is to prevent the bracelet from curling. I know how to do a slip stitch during a project with everything still on the hook, but, how is it done on a completed project?

All you need to do is insert your hook into the first stitch or the end of a row (depending on the direction the bracelet was crocheted) and pull up a loop (leaving about 8 inches to weave in later). Insert your hook into the second stitch or space, pull up a loop and pull through the first loop on the hook. Continue across the edge in this manner and end by cutting the thread or yarn, leaving another 8 inches and pull the thread/yarn through the last loop. Weave in your ends and Voila!
