I’m not terribly thrilled with how this one came out, but I’ll share it anyway. After all someone might like it better than I do.
Yarn: Aunt Lydia’s Classic Crochet Thread, Size 10
Hook: 1.15 mm
Gauge: Not Essential
Beg Cluster: Ch 2, yo, pull up a loop from the st as ch 2, yo, draw through 2 loops, yo, pull up a loop from same st, yo, draw through 2 loops continue until only 1 loop is left on hook.
Cluster: yo, pull up loop from st, yo, pull through 2 loops, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull u a loop, yo, pull through 2 loops repeating until only 1 loop is left on hook.
Note: The length of the band is entirely determined by the number of repeating rows. Made the way below it produced a bracelet 7 1/4″. By repeating every row two times before the decrease row it produced a bracelet of 8 1/8”.
I have ridiculously tiny wrists (a smidgen over 6”) so buttoning the 7 1/4” bracelet at 5/8” from the end of the band still leaves it just loose enough to slide around my wrist without it moving too far up my arm.
Row 1: Make a magic circle, sc 8
Row 2: Beg cluster in 1st sc, ch 3, repeat in every sc until there are 8 clusters and 24 ch’s
Row 3: ch 1, beg ch’s count as st’s through out, sc around entire flower (29 sc)
Row 4-5: ch 2, Dc 9, (10 dc)
Row 6: ch 2, dc 1, 3 dc2tog, dc 2
Row 7: ch 2, dc 6 (7 dc)
Row 8-9: ch 2, 6 dc
Row 10: ch 2, Dc2tog, dc, Dc2tog, dc (5 dc)
Row 11: ch 2, dc 4
Row 12: Dc2tog, dc, dc2tog (dc 3)
Row 13: ch 2, Dc 2
Row 14: Dc3tog (dc 1)
Bind off then reattach on the other side of the flower with a ss into the 6th sc from the end of 1st row of dc’s. Repeat rows 4-14 to make the other band.
Row 15: sc around the edges of the entire bracelet.
Finish: You may attach the ends by either sewing a small button (I used a 1cm button) and then slipping it between some dc or attach a lobster claw.
