Slip stitch with beginning of row (do not add any ss here)
Continue with ss in each stitch
1 row of double stitches
2 rows of single stitches
Wrap yarn or ribbon around the center - (Shhh: Don't tell on me, but I used hot glue to glue the beginning and end of the string onto the bracelet.)
I'll be adding these to my ETSY shop if you'd rather I make them for you.
Creative Ideas: Use a different color for the center wrapped yarn; Use some jewelry pieces in the band; Use some buttons; Use the colors of the season (IE: red, white, and blue like these); Use your imagination !!
