Backside of Thrice Headband
Thrice Clasps


Thrice is based on an attached beaded I-Cord stitch I envisioned one day in a class with Cat Bordhi.... this stitch is utterly customizable, so play around with it!  You get to choose how wide you want your thrice, how many colors it should have, AND where you want to wear it.  How fun is that?????  There is a link to a private video to help you out with this new stitch!

Fingering Weight Version-  
5 -10 yards (3 -5 different colors) fingering weight yarn,
(Headband- 10 yards (4 different colors) fingering weight yarn)
2 US Size 1 [2.5 mm] double pointed needles
Size 8 glass seed beads, approx. 1 gram per color
     (see notes for more details on choosing beads)

Sport Weight Version-
10 yards (3 -5 different colors) sport weight yarn
2 US Size 2 [3 mm] double pointed needles
Size 6 glass seed beads, approx. 3 grams per color
     (see notes for more details on choosing beads)

Both Versions-
Dental floss threader (for placing beads on yarn)
For Cuff- 16 mm Snap Clasp(s) The number will depend on how many colors you use and therefore how wide it is.  I used 2 on the fingering weight version, and 3 on the sport weight version
For Headband- Approx.  9 inches ½ inch elastic, sewing thread.

You don't have to worry about it!  WOOT!
