Quick to Make Crochet Bracelet

Been a heck of a long hiatus, but I'm back!! Due to some hand and wrist issues (thanks a bunch De Quervain's tenosynovitis), new equipment at work and buying a house (OMG!) I've been one busy lady this past year! 

If you've crocheted before and are familiar with most of the stitches, this will be a snap for you to make. If you're new, it may push you a bit, but is still totally doable. It's extremely repetitive and once you catch on, the repeated sections will be second nature to you.

I've written instructions to make the bracelet in one colour (easiest if you're new to crocheting) and separate instructions for the two-tone version. Only Round 2 is a bit different, but I figured it would be easier to have it written out in full for both versions instead of having to scroll back to look. God bless copy and paste! Keep scrolling down the page to read the two-tone instructions.






If you're making the single colour bracelet, selecting a variegated thread could add some interesting variations to the look of the bracelet. Sorry I never made a one colour one though. I'm rather fond of two colour...

Not a fan of reading online? You can always download the pattern from my website -

But let's get to the pattern.

Things you need:
1 or 2 balls of crochet cotton thread
Size 10 (1.3 mm) crochet hook
A pretty button ( approximately 1/2” or 1.5 cm diameter)

Gauge: 
It's not really important for this project as there isn't a specific size needed. This pattern can be made as long as you like and you can easily adjust the length to what you want when you're making it. Each loop adds approximately 25/32" or 2 cm. It depends how tightly you crochet. Generally speaking, I make my bracelets approximately 7 inches (17.5 cm) in length. I make 10 loops total for this pattern but you can add or make less as you see fit.

Another point to remember, your final product will stretch a bit longer as the stitches relax over time or if you press it with an iron.

Hints and Tips:
It is very easy to either miss a chain, chain the wrong number, or sc the wrong number by accident in Round 1. This will throw off the counts for Round 2 and you may end up with too many or not enough sc. Don't panic! Round 3 is very forgiving and will hide all. As long as your skipped stitches on either side of the 5 sc clusters are the same, you won't really be able to tell; even if you only make 4 stitches or make it 6 sc. Make it work with what you have. Another fix, you can either sc stitches together if too many or sc 2 stitches in one stitch if you don't have enough. FYI making things work like this, works great for all projects. Many times it can be hidden in a seam or the back of the work ;-)

No matter what, don't stretch out the necklace or bracelet before you are completely finished crocheting the entire piece! If you do, it won't lay flat when you are done.

To save work of sewing in ends, work in the ends of the threads as you are making your project. Hold the thread behind your work and catch it as you make the next 4-5 stitches.

Be sure you don't twist your loops when adding the sc's in Round 1. The chains should be on the BOTTOM of the loop and the tr-trc on the TOP.

A simple rule to follow for this very repetitive pattern, after the 5 sc clusters and the large numbers of sc's made on the end loops, always remember to ch 6. Simply put, every time you run across the sl st between the loops, ch 6.

Abbreviations:
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
hdc – half double crochet
trc – treble (or triple) crochet
tr-trc – triple treble crochet (wrap the thread around the hook 6 times)
ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
st – stitch
sts – stitches
