Flower Bracelet

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.

Flower:

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)

Band:

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.

  1. I love this! Going to work one up today. However, I am going to add seed beads at each point in the flower to add color and bling. Thank you for the pattern!

      I think the seed beads would look great at the flower points. I hope you leave a picture once it’s completed either here or at Ravelry. If there are any unclear areas in the pattern don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
