LET'S PLAY - CROCHET FUN - FREE PATTERN #6

free pattern crochet bracelet wristband cotton


SPRING THEME - Boho Bracelet- Part 1 of 3

Week #6 of Let's Play - Crochet Fun

THIS WEEK #6

I have a very easy bracelet and I am continuing once again the SPRING theme in this design too.  You may like to note this bracelet design has three (3) parts -  Part 1 presented today and Part 2 and Part 3 will be revealed in Week #7 and #8.  

These are simply perfect little projects for some spring crochet fun with guaranteed summertime wearing.  Quick and easy to make and easily adjusted to different wrist sizes.

This free crochet pattern is another great stash buster for those odd bits of cotton threads and yarns lurking in the back of your yarn stash!

How did you go last week? Did you enjoy making the Spring Boho Headband? If you did,  please do share your creations with us here, below in the comments, or you can share on my CROCKNIT Facebook Page, I would love to see your crochet handwork, and I am always happy to answer any questions in regards to the patterns.

Boho Bracelet has been made with remnants of cotton thread DMC Petra 5 and you will see the colours I had to hand were limited, however I do hope you like the orange and green, it is my favourite (although I am drawn towards the pink).  

Even though these boho bracelets look delicate, the mercerised cotton makes them very sturdy and durable, you can leave them on during bathing or swimming, absolutely perfect for summer holidays in the sun.

Adjusting the size:
Make the bracelet, approx. 1in (2.5cm) shorter than wrist circumference, this allows for stretch factor of cotton yarn.  The drawstring helps adjust the size too.   

You should be able to slide your hand easily through the bracelet, then tighten and tie a small knot in the drawstring to hold in place.

This pattern = 10 loops in foundation row = measures 5in (12.5cm) to fit 6in (15cm) wrist.

To make larger increase number of loops in foundation row; for example - 11 loops = measures 5.5in (14cm); 12 loops = measures 6in (15cm).
