Ready for a quick summer project? This Scrap Yarn Summer Bracelet Pattern is crocheted with DK Weight Yarn [3] and a 3.75 mm (F) hook.

My daughter is all about tie bracelets right now. I thought I would see if I could make one using my scrap cotton blend yarn that she’d like to wear this summer and she is quite happy with this design. The bracelet lies flat on the wrist and can be made in any 2 colors of yarn you wish to use.

You can easily crochet this Scrap Yarn Summer Bracelet Pattern using embroidery thread, jute, or even Medium Weight Yarn [4] for a chunkier finished project. Add beads to the ties and then knot them in place too if you’d like to add a little bling to your bracelet!

Have fun making these 2 row bracelets ♥
