Free Crochet Bracelet Pattern

May 20th, 2009 · 15 Comments

Before I get to the pattern, I must announce the next Pet Parade!  ELK of red or gray depends on the day and I will be holding our second Pet Parade next Wednesday, May 27, 2009!  Our thought is to hold a Pet Parade several times a year, probably on the last Wednesday of the month, in the months that have 31 days.  So, May has 31 days, the 27th is the last Wednesday before the end of May, that means…Pet Parade!  Is that confusing?  It sounds confusing, but really it’s not.  Don’t worry, we will announce when a parade is coming so you won’t miss out!

Blue and Brown Crochet Thread

I have worked a little with crochet thread and I love the results!  I have made tiny crochet hearts with crochet thread and I started making tiny bears with the thread.  But, boo on me, I never finished the bears.  They are on my list of, “Someday I’ll finish that.”  Do you have a list like that?

My 13 year old daughter likes wearing bracelets and loves handmade things, so she asked me to crochet her a bracelet.  I have been in a crochet slump lately and this was just the thing to pull me out of it!

My Girl’s Crochet Bracelet

Pattern created by Gayle www.planetmfiles.com

Size: Approximately 1-1/2 inches wide, make it as long as you need it.

Materials:

  • Two colors of size 10 crochet thread. I used Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet Thread in Fudge Brown and blue (I don’t remember which blue and I don’t have the wrapper anymore, I think it is either Aqua or Parakeet)
  • Crochet Hook – Size US 2/2.2mm

Gauge: Not important

Abbreviations: sc = single crochet, ch = chain, sl st = slip stitch, st = stitch, yo = yarn over

Notes: This pattern is worked with two strands of crochet thread held together throughout.

How to make a popcorn: In a single crochet, *yarn over, draw up a loop (in this pattern since we are using two strands of thread held together, you are drawing up both strands, so each loop you draw up consists of two strands)*  three times, then yo and draw this through all the loops on your hook.  Popcorn made!

Pattern:

  1. chain 8.
  2. Turn. sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across – 7
  3. Turn. ch 1, 1 sc in 1st sc, make a popcorn in the next sc, sc in each of the next 2 sc, make a popcorn in the next sc, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc – 7 (not counting the chain stitch)
  4. Turn. ch 1, 1 sc in each of the stitches across – 7 (not counting the chain stitch)
  5. Turn. ch 1, 1 sc in the first two sc, make a popcorn, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, make a popcorn, sc – 7 (not counting the chain stitch)
  6. Turn. ch 1, 1 sc in each of the stitches across – 7 (not counting the chain stitch)
  7. Continue until your bracelet is the correct length.   The thread has some give, so just be sure to make it large enough to slide over your hand, but not so big that it will fall off.
  8. Make your last row be a  row of sc’s.
  9. Fold your bracelet in half, inside out, matching up both ends.
  10. Slip stitch to close the bracelet. Finish off  and weave in the ends. (I finished with some good tight knots to keep the bracelet from coming undone.)

Show off your new bracelet!  I hope you enjoy this pattern!

    Hi! This bracelet is adorable, and I’ve already made one for a friend (black and green)! He’s been bragging about it to everyone, and apparently I now have a handful of requests for crocheted bracelets. I’m just a student though and have neither the time nor the money to be handing these out for free, but I don’t want to sell any without permission. I completely understand if you don’t wish me selling these, from experience I know that most pattern authors who offer their patterns free have that stipulation, just thought I’d ask :)

    Hi Liz,
    Thank you for asking! You are right, I would prefer that bracelets made from my pattern are not sold. Thank you so much for letting me know that you like my pattern!

    Hi Liz,
    I want to make this bracelet but I am having trouble with the popcorn. How do you make 3 loops in the same single crochet?
