Crochet Martis Bracelet
Add to Favorites
March is considered to be the first month of spring and here in Greece we have a custom for its arrival. Weaving a bracelet from red and white string on the first day of March and wearing it till the end of March or leaving it on some roses upon seeing the first swallow. It is called “Martis” (March in greek) and is considered to help protect the wearer’s skin from the strong Greek sun. So as getting ready for the arrival of March I thought of making 3 different “Martis” bracelets so that you can join in the fun although not being here in Greece.
