In my book club last night, someone was talking about how their relative used a worry bracelet or prayer bracelet, when they were upset, or worried, or praying for someone. It was made from knotted or braided yarn, with a few (4-5) beads, and a braided tassel or knot. it was a physical reminder to give your worries over to G-D (or whatever you believe in)
it reminded me of one my Mom had that was made from wool yarn with wooden beads. It isn't a rosary, really. just a bracelet size. and I seem to remember it looked braided in some parts.
I really want to make some for our group.
The closest thing I've found on the 'net is this:
but it is more macrame / knotty than I remember.
Any ideas out there?
I was thinking of braiding with 6 strands of wool, then bead, then knotting, then bead, then braiding, then bead, then knotting , then bead, then tassle connecting the ends.
But if there is a better idea, or you've seen what I mean, I'd love to hear about it! Thanks for your time, Marykz
