  • How to stitch a knit or crochet bracelet. I Love U Crochet Bracelet - Step 1
    Step 1

    Before starting this project, you need to measure your wrist with a tape measure. My wrist measures (more or less) 18cm and the following bracelet is made referring to this measurement.
    Adapt the pattern to your own measurement, please.

    Abbreviations :

    ch = chain
    sl st = slip stitch
    dc = double crochet (=american single crochet/sc)
    RS = right side of your work
    WS = wrong side of your work

    With red yarn make a slip knot on your hook and chain 35 to form your foundation chain.

    Row 1 (RS) : insert hook in 2nd chain from hook and work your 1st dc. Work 33 dc, ch 1 and turn. [34 dc]

    Row 2 (WS) : work 34 dc, ch 1 and turn.
