Thank you Becky!
Ok, here's an update. I decided to get a clasp to go on the bottom (back?) of the bracelet. I'm attaching a picture of what the clasp looks like.
so what I have done so far is cast on to each loop on the clasp, then knit a couple of rows, increase, knit 2 rows then increase - so i ended up with eight stitches by the time i got to the ring. Then I continued to knit onto the ring (pretty tricky!!) so now i have one row knit onto the ring. That is where I want to stop. I don't think i can bind off though because wouldn't that take it off the ring? How do i end this side? What i have is the ring with one row knit onto it and my working yarn hanging off of it (I hope I'm describing this okay..)
Should I just cut my working yarn now to like 4 inches and then weave it in to the bracelet?
thank you all so much! I'll post a pic when it's all done
