a super chunky bracelet in simple crochet
A little accessory to go with any summer outfit. Made in Wool and The Gang's mixtape yarn this bracelet is easy enough for a beginning crocheted but really packs a punch in the style department. Make it your own by adding charms or make a few in different colors for a bold look while showing off your love for crochet.

    This bracelet looks like a wrap but has a back that is solid for comfort. I didn't use any findings or fastenings because the yarn has a bit of stretch to it.

    Start by making a chain of 21 stitches leaving a 8" tail at the beginning. You will use this for sewing up the back later.

    Skip the first stitch (for turning). Single crochet in the first four stitches. Then chain 12 stitches try to keep everything flat and not twisted, then single crochet into the final four stitches remaining in your foundation chain. Then chain one.

    Repeat the previous step for another strand on your bracelet. If you continue repeating this step you can make yourself a cuff as wide as you like. I think this would make a really cute armwarmer set if you made the cuff super wide!

    Here's a shot of the clutch I made with the wool and the gang kit. I made some modifications.... a little bigger so my kindle would fit, some visual interest on the front with a texture pattern, and a slip stitch around the top for a more finished edge. The hardware is really nice and I am getting a lot of use out of it this summer!
