Did you see the adorable crocheted coffee cup cozy that was featured over at the last Inspiration Monday Link Party?  So cute!

After seeing the crochet cozy, I was inspired to pull out my crochet supplies and make something!  I wasn’t quite in the mood to crochet anything complicated, so I decided to make a simple crocheted bracelet.  (Plus I’ve been wanting to demonstrate the magic ring technique used in my teeny tiny crochet heart pattern, and this was perfect!)

The bracelets I’m showing here are made with recycled t-shirts and knit fabric scraps cut into strips to make t-shirt yarn, but you can also use a super chunky yarn or purchase premade t-shirt yarn

Non-stretchy lightweight fabric would work too if the fraying doesn’t bother you.

When using fabric strips to crochet the bracelets, I found they looked best when made with a solid or yarn dyed fabric (yarn dyed = looks the same on both sides.)

Just imagine all of the different bracelets you could make!

And after making one or two, you’ll be able to knock these out in just a few minutes each.

Simple crocheted bracelet instructions.

Supplies:

These are the basic instructions and if you need more help, check out the video below:

  1. Make a magic circle/ring, (just make the loop around your hand) then chain 1.
  2. SC through the ring, tightening the stitches as you go to match the upper and lower tension.
  3. When you have made enough stitches to create a wide enough bracelet, pull on the tail of the magic circle, moving the stitches down the ring to close the loop. You will most likely need to tug on the stitches to get the tension right.

  1. I would love to see the video but it will not play, so how are these bracelets closed/joined/finished? Thanks

  2. I am going to make them and I ve some old bead and stuff that I think might make them a little dolled up I thought of selling them at our state fair I live in a very small town and so I think the little girls and moms would love these a maybe have a church class on how to make them.

  3. Thank you for your tutorial. Learning to crochet is on my list of things to do! And these bracelets are so fun. Thanks for linking up to The Creative Exchange. We will be featuring your project this week.

  4. So cute!!! I love them and you've given such a great tutorial! Thanks for sharing with Monday Funday~

  5. I'm dropping by from the Happy Scraps link party. These bracelets are so cute — and easy to make. I think I'll make up a bunch for my granddaughters for Christmas. (I've pinned this so I can come back later for the instructions!)

    I have a link party that I am trying to grow. I invite you to share this idea — and a couple of others — at my Grandma Ideas Sharing Time link party at http://grandmaideas.com. I think my readers would love this idea as much as I do.

    The party goes from Wednesday through Friday night at midnight Mountain Daylight Time in the U.S. I hope to see you there. (If you don't make it this week, I hope you can next week.)

    All the best,
    Nina
