free crochet pattern bracelet wristband boho



PART 2 OF SPRING Boho Bracelet

Week #7 of Let's Play - Crochet Fun

THIS WEEK #7


If you were here last week, I mentioned that this bracelet design has three (3) parts -  Part 1 presented in Week #6 and Part 2 presented here today Week #7 and Part 3 will be revealed in Week #8.  

So here we go - Part 2 Another simply perfect little accessory project for some spring crochet fun, we continue with this lovely easy bracelet pattern, and we make the bracelet a little wider this week.  

Boho Bracelet has been made with remnants of cotton thread DMC Petra 5 and is perfectly suited for stash busting those odd bits of cotton threads and yarns lurking in the back of your yarn stash!  

The DMC Petra mercerised cotton creates delicate looking crochet bracelets which are comfortably soft to wear, and at the same time very sturdy and durable, you can leave them on during bathing or swimming, absolutely perfect for summer holidays in the sun.

How did you go last week? Did you enjoy making the first Spring Boho Bracelet? 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.

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. 

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 -  12 loops = measures 6in (15cm).  For this pattern to work you need to have an even number of loops in your foundation row.
