Beer Bracelet or Coffee Cozy, you pick!
With the fall season in quickly approaching here in Cincinnati, I thought I would share with you my little recipe for my beer bracelet
. Or some may call it my wrist warmer
. Or others my coffee cozy
Anyway you slice it, it keeps me happy and my hands either not frozen to my beer bottle or burnt off by my coffee. (PS. makes a great quick gift for your favorite football watchers. )
-Some scrap amounts (less then 50 yds) of Summit Hill by Kraemer Yarn Shop, 100% Merino Superwash wool, Worsted weight, Machine Washable (most important factor! you'll hate if you have to wash any of these by hand)
-H (5.00mm) hook
-2 (3/4") buttons
-needle to weave in ends.
About 2" (5cm) x 6" (15cm)
20 LTR by 10rows (in pattern sequence) = 4" (10cm)
1. The pattern uses Linked Treble Crochet Stitches (LTR). Not sure what LTR is? check out the linked stitch tutorial
on the stitch.
Row 1 (public side): LTR in 2nd, 3rd, and 5th ch from hook, LTR in each remaining ch across, CH 1, turn
Row 2 (beer side): SC in first 2 LTR, Ch 3, sk 3 LTR, (button hole made) SC in ea remaining LTR, CH 4, turn
Row 3: LTR in each SC across to button hole, 3 LTR in button hole, LTR in last 2 SC, CH 1, turn
Repeat row 2-3 once more, Fasten off, weave in ends.
(optional) With public side facing, join yarn and SL around entire bracelet. I do this just to give it a crisp finished look.
Add buttons as shown here to the opposite side from the button holes aligned with the SC rows.
Slip on and enjoy.
