Yarn: 20-25 yds light DK weight (3) cotton yarn (or lighter weight thread). The recommended yarn, Patons Grace, is available at Michael’s. It’s a small skein, so you may have to hunt a little in the aisle to find it.
Hook: Appropriate sized crochet hook for your yarn or thread.
Beads: About 10-20 beads (allow 2 beads per 3/4" of bracelet). You can use any bead as long as your yarn will go through the bead’s hole. The recommended beads for Patons Grace are 2/0 Czech glass E beads, available at Jo-Ann. (A limited number of beads will be available at the meeting.)
Needle: Sized to thread your yarn through the bead
Optional: Small button & thread to sew on as a closure
