First of all, you should know that I'm not a big fan of following rigid crochet patterns - not even if I've made the pattern myself. The directions is just an approximation, sort of. Feel free to change the amount of stitches as you go, to make it suit your crochet style. That's how I made this bracelet :)
You'll need a crochet hook that suits your yarn (I used something close to 2), a needle, a button, scissors and three colours of yarn. My yarn is 100% cotton, made by DMC. It's shiny (mercerised in English?) and in Swedish it's called "pärlgarn" (pearl yarn). But you can use any thin yarn or crochet thread in your favourite colours.
st - stitch
ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
Basically, the bracelet consists of circles (lime and pink) that are attached to each other with a turquoise border. Let's start with the circles...
With lime, chain 4, sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Round 1: Work 7 sc in ring, finnish with a sl st in first sc and change colour to pink
Round 2: With pink, work 2 sc in each st around
If you're like me, and hate weaving in ends, I recommend that you crochet in all ends (I actually managed to make this bracelet with only one loose end to weave in - hurray!)
You should work 2 sc in the sl st as well, as you want a nice and full pink circle. Finnish with a sl st in first sc, fasten off.
Now make enough circles to fit around your wrist. I used 6, maybe you'll need 5 or 7.
Then it's time to attach all the circles to each other...
With turquoise, start sc around one of your circles. Make *1 sc, 2 sc in next st*. When you've come half the way around (you've crocheted in 7 or 8 stitches - about 12 sc), it's time to attach the first circle to the next one.
Just start sc in the next circle (don't make any ch), still making *1 sc, 2 sc in next st*
When you've crocheted around half of the second circle, attach the third one exactly as above... Keep on doing this until you've attached all of your circles.
Now you should have all your circles in a line, with a turquoise border on one side of them. When you reach the last circle just keep on crocheting around it (still *1 sc, 2 sc in next st*).
When you reach "the bridge" between the last circle and the one before the last, make 2 sc in "the bridge". Then keep on crocheting around next circle (*1 sc, 2 sc in next st*), and 2 sc in next "bridge"...
When you've gone all the way back, finnish by making a sl st in the first sc. Don't fasten off yet.
Attach the button to the opposite end. Now you'll know how big loop you need to make for your button.
Chain as many as you need for your loop (mine is 7 ch), then
anchor it with 2 sl st. Fasten off.
If you've been good and followed my advise (to crochet in all your loose ends) you'll only need to weave in the very last one - congratulations :)
That's it! Now you've crocheted your very own circle bracelet. I'd be happy if you shared the result with me.
