Dreaming of Spring Bracelets


Dreaming-of-Spring Flower Bracelets

Pattern by Shelby Allaho

In the blink of an eye, with a snip of thread and a twist of your hook, you can create this fun bracelet. It's perfect with jeans or for dressing up. And if your friends find out you made it yourself, they might just ask you to make some for them too (better get ready to teach them all how to crochet for themselves!).

Skills
Chain, slip stitch, single crochet, working in the round, working in the back loop only.

Materials
Size 8 DMC Pearl Cotton thread (Art. 116) (100% cotton):
For the black cuff: 4 balls in black [Color A] and 2 balls in cream [Color B]
For the pink cuff: 2 balls in pink [Color A] and 3 balls in variegated pink [Color B]
Substitution: About 31 yds/28 m of sportweight yarn or size 8 crochet thread
3.25mm (size D) hook
Stitch marker
Yarn needle
Straight pins
Beads and fabric glue (optional)

Finished Measurements
Band: 1 1/16 inches wide x 6 5/8 inches long
Flower: 2 1/4 inches in diameter
(Note: The length of the bracelet can be altered to fit your wrist by adding or subtracting chains along the band.)
