LET'S PLAY - CROCHET FUN - FREE PATTERN #8

PART 3 OF SPRING Boho Bracelet

Week #8 of Let's Play - Crochet Fun

THIS WEEK #8


If you have been following this blog in the last few weeks, you will know that this week #8 is about the final stage of SPRING Boho Bracelet.  I mentioned previously that this bracelet design has three (3) parts -  Part 1 presented in Week #6 and Part 2 presented in Week #7 and Part 3 presented here today in Week #8.


Let me just say I wish all those mums out in the world who celebrated Mother's Day yesterday a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.  Personally I had a lovely weekend away, and I hope you all enjoyed your special day too!

Now, let's get on with Part 3 - Building on the last two free bracelet patterns we are going to add an extra round this week, with a slight change in round 3 as well.  This is a perfectly simple spring crochet project, and you can have lots of fun by changing colour as much as you like.  Of course we also end up with a wider bracelet or wrist cuff this week.

Boho Bracelet is perfectly suited for stash busting those odd bits of cotton threads and yarns lurking in the back of your yarn stash - I have made mine with remnants of mercerised cotton thread DMC Petra 5.  

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 in week #6 and week #7? Did you enjoy making the two versions of Spring Boho Bracelet? If you did,  you are most welcome to 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.

Make second disc:  Rep from * to ** of Rnd 1 and 2.  Hide ends.

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.
