Photo Tutorial on How To Make Interlocking Loop Stitch in Crochet

 I just published a tutorial on how to do interlocking loop stitch in crochet.  In this example, cuff bracelet,  (pattern) it was done in stripes so that when looped together the blue loops would be over the red stripes and the red loops over the blue. 

 In this cuff bracelet (pattern) the loops are every other in color and make nice long lines.

 This cuff bracelet (pattern) the loops are made with beads. (slide bead, ch-1).

I don't want you to think this stitch is only for jewelry.  In this example (pattern) the Tab Top Curtains use three colors and the interlocking loops make stripes.
