Easy Crochet Wrap Bracelet

Hey, friends!  I know many of you all up and down the East Coast are in a similar situation to ours…cold and snowed in!  So, I thought I’d share a quick and easy crochet project today that you probably already have the supplies on hand to make.  As you’re watching the snow fall, whip up a few of these to share with your friends!

Crochet Wrap Bracelet

Sometimes I get a project in mind and then look for the perfect yarn to use, as was the case with my boot cuffs.  I knew I wanted to make them, I envisioned how I wanted them to look, and then I bought Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Oatmeal because it was exactly what I was going for.  But that’s not what happened with this bracelet.  Instead, it started with the yarn.  This teeny, tiny, super-adorable, glittery yarn.

Crochet Wrap Bracelet

As you know, when I went to CHA, I got to come home with lots of goodies from lots of the companies that help support One Artsy Mama.  Lion Brand was one of those companies, and they gave me a set of their Bonbons yarns…eight of these teeny little skeins in fun colors, complete with sparkle.  *ahhhh!*  I knew I wanted to make something with it, but what?  What kind of pattern could I create that would only take up a small amount of yarn?

Honestly?  I made a headband first.  It’s really pretty.  You’ll like it.  But you don’t get to see it yet because my hair is a hot mess and I’m in no shape for taking beauty shots today.  True story.  I promise once I’m done building a snowman and helping my poor hubby shovel the 18 or so inches out there that I’ll wash my hair and take some nice photos so you can see it soon.  In the meantime, when the headband was finished, I still had yarn left.  More than I anticipated.  And so, I made this bracelet, which I absolutely love…even hubby said it looks really fun.  Here’s how I did it and you can too!

Materials:
Lion Brand Yarn Bonbons
Crochet hook {I used size I/9 to get a lacy look}
Scissors
Button
Thread and needle

Stitches: for complete step-by-step photo tutorials, click on the stitch names
slip knot
chain stitch
single crochet

Crochet Wrap Bracelet

Row 1: Chain 110  {my wrists are pretty small, so if yours are bigger, you may want to add a few more chains}
Row 2: sc {single crochet} in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain going across, 109 sc.  Finish off and cut end.

Join your two ends and stitch them together using embroidery thread.  Place your button on top of where the ends join and sew it in place with thread as well.

That’s it!  Really!  Just a long row of chains {which is great practice!} and a long row of single crochets!  Couldn’t be easier!  Then, just wrap it around your wrist until it fits comfortably.  Mine wraps four times.

One of the really fun things about this project is that you can get totally different styles and looks depending on what yarn you choose to use.  The buttons can totally change things up too; you can use wooden ones, colored ones, blingy ones…whatever you like!  For this bracelet, I liked combining the sparkle of the yarn with the wood of the button.

Crochet Wrap BraceletI made mine while sitting on the couch watching Phineas and Ferb with the little man; it was a total win-win!  We got some quality time, I had some laughs {because let’s face it, that show is hysterical}, and I knocked out a fun project while I was at it!  Now I’m ready to wear my new bracelet…and as a bonus, it keeps my wrist warm!

    Fun! Glitter yarn! I think I need to pick up some of these little bon-bons for my daughter to play with… she is just learning to crochet and these look like the perfect size for her. :)

      Aw, thanks, Dinah!! It’s really easier than you think, I promise! Once you get the hang of it you can even do it while you’re watching a good movie!
