Updated on February 15, 2012
Chains of Hearts Bracelet
Chains of Hearts Bracelet

Two interlaced chains of adorable little hearts results into this chunky but dainty crocheted bracelet. It's easy to make and can be worked in any yarn. (My crocheted bracelet used dark and light pink plarn, 1-8-in strips.)

While making this bracelet, nostalgia hit me. Suddenly, I remembered all those that received a part of my heart and what happened to us. Why do things like that happen?

Skill Level

This project requires changing colors, working stitches on both sides of the foundation chain, and some techniques that are specific to this project alone. DON'T BE SCARED. I've provided enough pictures to get you through.

      I was wondering if I may make some of these for a fund-raiser for a 16 yr old who is waiting for a heart transplant?

      Oh, I'm honored MARY! You are very welcome and thank you for your comment, my smile is reaching my ears.

      I was a licensed science teacher before, so I guess I've learned a few tricks while teaching for 5 years.

      You've done a wonderful job all through your hubs, Moira! The pictures are so helpful :-) I'm 59 so this PROVES you can teach an old dog new tricks... IF the teacher is good! I really appreciate the way you put your thoughts and honesty in, like you ADMIT you aren't patient, then give options. For your young years, just in comparison to my 59 years you have learned all these life lessons well, and I am sure you are an awesome Mommy!

      Thank you for all the help this has been for me :-)
