I like these bangles, they're comfy and they don't make a loud racket when you move your arms!
Make them in a rainbow of colours to suit your outfit or simply give them as gifts.
This pattern first appeared on my blog http://hookylove.blogspot.com/
I used Rowan Cotton Rope (Aran weight) but any aran weight would do, and a 4.5mm hook.
variable, that's the best thing!
Gauge is not important, just make sure the starting chain can fit around your wrist!
I used a smaller hook than stated on the yarn, just to make the gauge is tight so the bangle has more structure.
I write in UK terms!
dc: double crochet
sl st: slip stitch
blo: back loop only
ws: wrong side
Ch 35, sl st into 1st chain to join (careful not to twist the chain!)
Row 1: Ch 1,dc in one leg of each foundation ch around. Sl st into 1st dc to join
Row 2: Work all sts in blo. Ch 1, dc in each dc around. Sl st to 1st dc to join
Rows 3 & 4: Repeat row 2
To finish, fold in half with ws facing to form bangle shape. Sl st around, joining blo of Row 4 to one leg of foundation ch. end off.
For the black and red bangle I alternated the colours each row, for the red and yellow I changed colour for rows 2&3 then back to the original colour for row 4
