It's a new season, with new fashions, new looks, and new trends. And what better way to update your look, than with unique, one of a kind jewelry pieces? Here are some of the most popular free bracelet patterns available online, and most take hardly any yarn or time - make one for every outfit!
- Kaldred: This pattern in available in US English, UK English, and Dutch - and it works up fast in any language! I made this one with Hobby Lobby's I Love This Cotton. I couldn't get the look I wanted by sl st it closed, so I whip stitched instead. So pretty and cozy!
- Ribbed Soft Bangle: This pattern offers two versions - this is the top version. I have big hands, and this one was a little snug, so for the bottom version I added a couple of stitches. Still love it though!
- Ribbed Soft Bangle: And here it is! The bottom version of this pattern mixes up the rib pattern a bit. I added a few stitches to make this one a little bigger and bangle-ier. This one is made with Lily Sugar'n Cream Ombre in Country Stripes - and just a tiny bit of it too.
- 2 Color Bangle: This two tone peek-a-boo bracelet is made in two parts that are then sewn together. The combinations are limitless! This one is a sort of jaunty nautical version, but I'd love to see this bracelet pattern done with a metallic inner portion!
My Style: This pattern isn't the easiest to read - but it's worth it! I love the casual, cozy, chic style of this look. The pattern is written so that you can make it any length - scarf, necklace, bracelet, it's up to you. I wanted a doubled over bracelet, so I started with 110 chains. This pattern is no longer available.
- Summer Cotton Crocheted Bracelet: Believe it or not, this is my first beaded crochet project! The instructions are easy to follow, and the beads are ones I just had laying around - I'd like to make another one (or more!) with more great color combos.
- Chunky Crochet Cuffs: Am I the only one who used to wind the phone cord around my wrist while talking to my friends, and pretend it was a bracelet? This pattern says I'm not alone. (And it's a great technique for making all sorts of crochet curls!)
- Lotus Flower Cuff: This one doesn't look much like the original on the blog, it's true. I had just one tiny skein (?) of DMC Embroidery Floss in Coral (Tangerine Tango anyone?), and I wanted to use it to best advantage. With only 8 yards, that was a challenge! So I stopped after round 3 with each motif, and before attaching the last sl st, I cut the yarn and worked into a ch3 sp of the previous motif. The orange made 4 motifs, so I added green motifs on both ends and then a jewelry clasp. Voila!
- Curry Cuff: This was my first broomstick crochet project - I love it! I can see doing a LOT more of this. Since I used thread, I used a sz 15 knitting needle (the biggest I had on hand).
- Julie Cuff: I made this one in a fuzzy little fingering weight chenille. It doesn't show off the stitches very well, but it's fun to wear!
- BONUS! Chevron Cuff by Moogly! My own addition to the crochet bracelet look. (And I hear it makes a great coffee cozy too!)
