How To Crochet a Flower Bracelet - Yarn Scrap Friday


Happy Valentine's Day everyone! 

Sending you lots of love from the HappyBerry design studio. I hope you have received some nice gifts from your loved ones but if not I hope today's Yarn Scrap Friday's crochet tutorial brings you some joy.

Something a little different from all the heart related Valentine designs this Yarn Scrap Friday. I thought I would design a heart bracelet which involves no sewing of flowers together.



Materials Required

  • Some DK/Light worsted weight cotton yarn - I used Rico Design Essential Cotton DK available from The Wool Warehouse - in two colours, I chose white and another colour
  • 3.0mm crochet hook or similar
  • Yarn needle and scissors
W = White
AC = Alternate Colour



Pattern


Step 1
Using W ch4, sl st in 1st ch to form loop

Step 2
Crochet 5sc into loop, sl st to join round joining AC in your sl st - (5)

Step 3
Continuing in AC *[1sc, 1dc, 1tr, 1dc, 1sc] in next st* repeat from * to * until end and you have 5 petals, sl st in first petal st to join round joining W again as you sl st. 

Step 4
Continuing in W, ch2 to form some chains between the flowers, then repeat steps 1 - 3, you end up chaining 6 in total at the beginning but instead of slip stitching in your 1st ch to make a loop you need to sl st in the 3rd chain of the 6 or 4th ch from hook.

Step 5
Continue repeating steps 1-4 until you have your desired length of flowers. Then ch2, sl st in 1st petal st on 1st flower to join into bracelet (or necklace), fasten off and tie in all tails.


Why not make lots of flowers into a necklace or even in blue for a wedding gift garter! (^-^)
