DESIGN NOTES

The bracelet is made up of a strip of motifs joined together at the second round. A button/bead loop is crocheted and a button/bead sewn at the ends of the bracelet for closure.

The bracelet can also be completed by crocheting the motifs separately then joining them together by sewing with matching color thread.

The model bracelet was made with five motifs for a length of 6.5 inches. You can adjust the length of the bracelet by using more or less motifs. The standard size for women’s bracelet is 7 inches.

It is recommended to starch the bracelet lightly to protect it from dirt.

    1. Hi Linda,

      “3 picot” meaans make 3 picots. That’s repeating the steps:
      “Ch 3, sl st in third ch from hook (picot made)” 3 times.

      I hope this explains it. Please let me know if there’s anything else
      confusing in the pattern.

      Cheers!

  1. This is lovely, this would make a pretty necklace or earrings too. You do beautiful work. Lately all I’ve been working on is some socks and an afghan for the winter, and they are colorful, but not what i call beautiful. Lately I find myself looking at all my edging patterns with an eye to what would make earrings or necklace or bracelet.

    1. Thanks, Linda. Actually, I am consciously surrounding myself with beautiful hand-made things. I have lost a lot of the pleasures in life after several years of emotional struggle (a long story), and through making beautiful things I begin to have a feeling for pleasure again. Cooking and eating also cultivate “pleasure” or perhaps I really mean the sensitivity to pleasure.

      I love looking at crocheted afghans and scarfs and blankets but the Tropical climate here make them rather superfluous! :) But if I lived in Temperate zones, I will definitely be covering myself in beautiful wool!!! :)

      Let’s keep crocheting! :D
