I have been crocheting like a madwoman in the past few days. I’m very close to finishing my mother’s purse. So close. I just have to finish the edging and the inside pocket. This is much more work than I thought it would be, but it is worth it. I have to start on another present for my mom’s friend. Amigurumi Master Shake. I even got the pipe cleaner for the straw part.

Actually what. Am sharing with you today is a crochet pattern for a bracelet using yarn scraps. I had a very small amount of a very pretty yarn left. It is the same yarn from my slouch hat pictures. I wanted to find a way to use the rest of the yarn, so I made myself a bracelet to wear on st. Patty’s day.

For the first bracelet:
Foundation single crochet enough to fit comfortably around your wrist, fasten off.

Chain enough to fit around your wrist, turn and slip stitche into the second chain from the hook. Sl st into the next chain. Chain 3 and sl st into the first on the chain, *slip stitch into the next three chains, ch 3 and sl st into the first chain. Repeat to the end.
(if you want, turn and do it again on the other side of the starting chain, alternating where the picots are. ) fasten off

Chain enough to fit your wrist. Sl st into each chain, turn and sl st into the other side of the starting chain. Fasten off.

In an alternating color, chain enough to fit your wrist, fasten off.

Now, we’re going to join those four bracelets and hide the ties with a centerpiece.

The centerpiece will be the same color as the plain chain bracelet you made last.

Chain enough to wrap around all four bracelet strands four or five times.
Sc in each chain, ch 1 and sc on the other side of the starting chain.

To assemble:

Tie each of the ends of your bracelets together, and wrap the centerpiece around the bracelet. Use a yarn needle to see it in place, hiding all of the other bracelet ties. Weave in ends!
