I have designed this so you can extend the length easily if it is to small for your wrist after you have finished crocheting it.

I have created the bracelet in 2 lengths. They do stretch slightly – about .25″ and you can add a few extra rows at the very end if you are finished and realize it is a little bit too small to fit comfortably (just in case your gauge is different than mine!).

Sizes:

Small: 5.25″ long, 1″ wide
Large: 6.50″ long, 1″ wide

Large Bracelet:

R1: Ch 42, work 1 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook. *Work 1 sc in the next ch, ch 11, skip 7 ch, 1 sc in the next ch*. Repeat from * to * across to the last 4 ch. Work 1 sc in the last 4 ch. Turn.

Note: For the first bracelet you make I suggest you use a stitch marker (or even a safety pin) to mark each ch 11 section).

I recommend you mark the ch-11 sections as it can be difficult to tell them apart when you begin to work back along the row. Please note this image shows 5 sets of Ch 11 sts. If you are making the Large Bracelet you will have 4 sets and if you are making the Small Bracelet you will have 3 sets. If you have 5 sets the bracelet will be an additional 1.5″ in length.

R2: Ch 1, work 1 sc in each of the 1st 4 sc. *Work 1 sc in the next sc. You will now be working into the skipped ch from R1, in front of the ch 11. Work 1 hdc in each of the 7 skipped ch from R1; 1 sc in the next sc*. Repeat from * to * across to the last sc. Work 1 sc in the last sc. Turn.

Work 1 dc in each of the 7 skipped hdc from R2; 1 sc in the next sc of R3*. Repeat from * to * across to the last sc of R3. Work 1 sc in the last sc of R3. Turn.

R5: Repeat R3.

To make your bracelet longer, repeat R2 as many times as needed in multiples of 2 (to ensure you finish on the correct side of the bracelet). Remember the bracelet will stretch slightly with wear. The instructions below will give you the bracelet I made in blue – the large size as indicated by the measurements listed at the top of the post.

Items used in this post:

My 18 mm button is a vintage button I purchased. I found it in a cookie tin full of buttons from a local antique shop. It has a post. If you want to use a flat button (like I used on the purple bracelet for Darla) you can but you will need to make a thread post to give it a little extra room to close securely.

PS! If you like my nails you can buy them from my Jamberry Shop (I am an Independent Jamberry Consultant) – Simply Daisy – Jamberry.

  1. Hi Jane, If you scroll to the end of the post and use the PrintFriendly button it will allow you to print the pattern with or without images or even save a PDF copy 🙂 Hope this helps! Rhondda

  2. I love this pattern only I’m having a terrible time downloading and printing it. Can you help me?

  3. Thank you for sharing your design. They are so pretty I thought about adding some beads as well. My granddaughter will love it. Her B-day is coming up soon and I’m making her a shawl so I will make the bracelet the same color, to match. Thanks again Ronda.

  4. Lovely crochet bracelets. I imagine I can add some beads in strategic places or buy some blingy yarn to make them fancy. Rhonda, you’re the best! Thanks for sharing your designs!
    Happy Hooking,
    Mary (yayamama)

  5. Thank you for the lovely pattern, “Sands of Time.” I really like its elegance.
