Introduction

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/

Materials List

I used Rowan Cotton Rope (Aran weight) but any aran weight would do, and a 4.5mm hook.

Finished Size

variable, that's the best thing!

Gauge

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.

Notes

I write in UK terms!

Abbreviations:

ch: chain
dc: double crochet
sl st: slip stitch
blo: back loop only
ws: wrong side

sts: stitches

The Pattern

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

Happy bangling!

Thanks for sharing. I will be giving this pattern to my son (age 9) tonight - he crochets with me. He has made bracelets for grandma that are more like sweat bands & I think he will LOVE this idea.

Nice bracelets! I will try it! I just have one question: What does it mean "dc in one leg of each foundation ch around"? I'm new to UK terms and don't understand what leg means. Thanks.

Thanks so much for the pattern.  I made a bunch of these for my childrens' teachers as gifts.  They loved them!  The only thing different that I did was to fold the bracelet over once more and sewed it together.  This gave it a tighter, sturdier feel.  Only because I used a thinner yarn.
