The bracelet size is:
Width: 19 cm / 7.5 in (and it stretch up to 22 cm / 8.7 in)
Hight: 10 cm / 4 in
but you can do it longer if you want.
For this pattern you will need:
I use Unitas Mirabela You can also use some of these brands if they are available to you for my patterns Aunt Lydia’s fashion 3 size 100% Mercerized cotton or “Patons Grace” 100% mercerized cotton or anything similar.
3 mm crochet hook
2 small buttons
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet
tr – treble crochet
slst – slip stitch
First make 42 chains. (that should be 18 cm, if you want your bracelet to be longer than add multiple of 2 chains, keep in mind that finished bracelet will be 1 cm / 0.4 in longer)
Row 1: 1 hdc in 3rd chain from the hook and in every ch until the end. (40 hdc)
Row 2: Ch 2, turn, 1 hdc in the every hdc from previous row.
Row 3: Repeat row 2.
Row 4: Repeat row 2.
Row 5-14: Repeat row 2.
Now we will make sc all around the bracelet.
First make 1 sc around every hdc and ch2 on the side of the bracelet. You can count them to make sure you did it right. You must have 14 sc. Also I would advise you to make them looser than you usually do so the bracelet won’t wrinkle.
Continue to work sc on the other side of the starting chain. (40 sc)
And on the other side of the bracelet same as the first side we did. (14 sc)
Now make 1 sc in every hdc from the last row.
Now make 1 sc in next 4 stitches, chain 4, skip one sc, one sc in next 5 stitches, chain 4, skip one sc, one sc in next 4 stitches. You have just made the holes for the buttons.
Make 1 sc in next 54 stitches (one long side and one short side of the bracelet).
To make the finish – chain 8, sc in the same stitch that you made last sc, *sc in next 2 stitches, chain 8, sc in the same stitch that you made that second sc, repeat from * to the end. Fasten off.
FLOWERS AND LEAFS!
Long leafs (make two):
Chain 30, 3 sc in second chain from the hook, 3 sc in every chain to the end. Fasten off.
Normal leafs (make two):
Slst in 2nd ch from hook, 2 sc, 3 dc, 2 trc, 2 dc, in last ch make 1 sc, 1 slst, 1 sc.
Now on the other side of foundation chain make 2 dc, 2 trc, 3 dc, 2 sc. Fasten off.
Chain 4, slst in first chain to join in a ring.
Round 1: *ch 3, sc into the ring, repeat from * 5 times.
Round 2: *slst in 3ch space, ch 1, 3 dc in same 3ch space, ch 1, slst in same space, repeat from * 5 times.
Make two ch, 12 hdc in 2nd chain from the hook. Slst in the 1st hdc from the beginning.
Now we are going to do petals.
Insert hook into the back loop only of the hdc on the pestle and attach pink yarn.
Make 8 ch’s and sc back into that same loop. *Make sc into the next back loop, 8 ch, sc into the same loop. Repeat from * all the way around. (12 petals made)
Now we are going to make second row of petals and you do them only through front loop of the sc on the pestle.
*Sc into the first loop, ch 6, sc into that same loop. Repeat from * all the way around. Fasten off.
Lace (make two):
Chain 60, fasten off.
Now we need to assemble everything. 🙂
Tie long leafs in the center, than add big flower on top of them, than little flower to the left of the big one, than tie one regular leaf behind little flower and one leaf behind big flower, also tie one lace behind little flower and one behind big flower and tie a knot on every end of a lace, finally tie on the buttons parallel with the holes on the other side. Buttons should be 1 cm / 0.4 in diameter.
Weave in all ends. And you’re done! 🙂
I hope you enjoyed it! 🙂
