Beach Inspired Friendship Bracelets ~ FREE crochet pattern and video tutorial

Well, we just got back from Neptune beach, and it was awesome!Β  If you haven’t been to Hanna Park – definitely check it out, it’s worth your time.

While we were there, I didn’t crochet much because we were playing in the water or skating most of the time, but I did come up with a little cute pattern for beach friendship bracelets – because it was so hard to not crochet at all for a week! 😊


pattern is so simple and fun, you can make a bunch in just a few a minutes!

I wanted to create something simple, easy, and fun to make.Β  These cute bracelets are the perfect summer project.Β  Probably great to teach a beginner too or a perfect project for a child crocheter πŸ˜‰

I added some beads on the ends of the ties, and if you’re feeling ambitious, you can add more beads, or even a clasp and jump rings.

WHAT YOU NEED:

Suggested Yarn:

Cashmere De Contone or any cotton DK weight (3)

colors:Β  0010, 0002, 0004, 0005, 0006, 0007

 

Yarn Details:

(10% Cashmere, 90% Cotton)

Hook Size:

4 mm (G) – or recommended hook for the yarn you are using Scissors Beads (optional) – I purchased the stars from Michael’s.

Sizing:

Pattern works in multiples of 4 + 3.Β  Using DK weight yarn with a 4 mm hook will result in a bracelet approximately 7″ long (excluding the ties and depending on your crochet tension).Β  Increase or reduce starting chain in multiples of 4 to increase or decrease size.

Abbreviations:

ch – chain / dc – double crochet / lsc – long single crochet / st – stitch / *repeat* – from * to *

Stitch guide:

lsc – long single crochet insert hook in indicated st, yo, draw up loop to level of other stitches, yo, draw through both loops on hook. dc – double crochet yo, insert hook in indicated st, yo, draw through 2 loops, yo, draw through 2 loops.

PATTERN:

The pattern below shows a double crochet crossing the other double crochets – ignore that!Β  Unless you *want* to work it like that, that is okay too.!Β  The long single crochet is what we work into the skipped stitch for this pattern (lsc).

**updated**

I realized yesterday that I completely left out the long single crochet stitch in the written pattern below – it’s fixed now!Β  Ooops!

To Start:

ch 34 + 3

Row 1:Β  dc in the 5th ch from hook.Β  dc in next 2 sts (total of 3 dc’s). go back to the 4th chain from beginning chain, and lsc in that st.Β  Then, *sk st, dc in next 3 sts, lsc in skipped st* – repeat from * to * to end of row. (You should have 2 ch’s left).Β  sk st, dc in last st of row.

Finishing:

Cut a long tail (about 5 inches) pull through and tie starting tail and ending tails together with a knot.

Embellishing:

You can add beads to the tail ends by first tying a small knot, add the bead, then tie another knot to secure the bead in place.

To add the star beads:Β  use some clear thread and sewing needle to attach them through the end where you tied the knots (kind of hiding the knots).

You’re finished!

See how easy that was???
