Stitching Crocheted Bracelets

This project was somewhat of an experiment for me. I've never done any embroidery, and have only done very little cross stitch (Though I am interested in both). I had found a pattern for making simple crochet bracelets, and after making one, I wondered what it might be like if I were to add some decoration to it. So I came up with some ideas, and took a stab at it. This Instructable will attempt to document my journey.

#1 - If you pull on the bracelet, you should see little holes, as shown with the white bracelet. These will be the working 'grid' for this project.
#2 (not pictured) - Some of the bracelets I made are slimmer than the others. Simply remove or add rows to make the bracelets thinner or wider for your projects (following the pattern which I embedded a link to on step 2).
#3 - To tie off a strand of yarn, put it through to the back, then go under previous stitches, as shown in pictures 2 and 3 of this step.

Step 3: X's or Crosses

This is the first one I did. It's pretty simple, but I think it looks pretty good.
#1 - Following the 'grid' stitch diagonally left to right all the way across the top of the bracelet.
#2 - Once you reach the other side of the bracelet, go back across opposite diagonals.
#3 - This is what the finished top row should look like.
#4 - Repeat steps 1 and 2 along the bottom. This is what the finished bracelet should look like.
