This is a marvelous idea. I like the fact that it doesn't take much yarn and is very easy to make. You can dress it up a bit if you like. I will be adding small or seed beds to mine to give it just a little bling. My grand daughters will be in red and green with tiny jingle bells.

A pattern like this is is good for many times of projects. I can see using this as a trim for a bath towel. Take a nice quality cotton towel and add this beautiful trim! Or, if you have a good quality white tee shirt, make this trim in black to add to the sleeves and the bottom of the shirt to make a basic tee much more unique and special.

That sounds like a marvelous idea. I can also see this being trim for the nice decorative towels my mom keeps hanging over our sink. It just adds a touch of elegance to an otherwise drab towel!

With 70 sc as a start, I was able to make 6 complete repeats around the bangles I used.Awesome design! I've used 3 different yarns so far.

I also have a video on Youtube if you want to make just the bangle covering it and no special styles to it. Most people don't care for all those extras . Here is the link to the video. http://youtu.be/jdLAtdFw940

I have made many varieties of this type of crocet bracelet. I've made them on bangle wire bracelets like the instructions here, or with out just laying flat then add a closure of some kind like a button, snap, or hook. Adding beads also makes them very interesting. You can string them on your crochet thread before crocheting and add them as you go, or sew them on after crocheting with needle thread. I have put many hours into one bracelet for what I like to call "wearable art." Also, I will use other crochet threads and different smaller crochet hooks - whatever pleases my eye at the time. They are welcomed gifts! firstname.lastname@example.org

To add a project to your craft box you need to scroll up to the top of the article. Just under the project title there is a line with stars on the left and buttons on the right labeled "Rate," "Print," "Add," "Notes," etc. Click the "Add" button, and the project will be added to your craft box. (There is no "Add It" button on the page.)

Would someone please tell me where the add it button is on the craft box is? I feel like I am being put between a rock and a hard place again. I grew up in an abusive household and people who make life miserable for others are abusive. Telling people to do or go somewhere without instructions is abusive!!! These people have no business running this company!!! Where is the add it button on the craft box someone? DeborahJudges4@sio.midco.net

Try as I might i just could not work through this pattern. It read a little odd to me. I was able to create for myself a very cool bracelet....thanks for the inspiration.

Yes, it could be knitted. Just find an edging pattern that you like and along thee edge that would be sewn onto an item, just add at least 3 or 4 more sts. Decide how long it needs to be made to fit your wrist and add a little bit for your hand to slip through. Lay it out flat and lay a thin elastic on the edge and fold it over. Sew it down and sew the ends together as well as the elastic. I have made these before using knit cro sheen thread and they turned out great. You can also make a necklace this same way. It looks very vintage and rests on the neck nicely. I sew either velvet or satin ribbon to the ends to tie the necklace on and have even put the ribbon on the bracelets instead of sewing the ends together. Hope this helps.
