Best Friends Forever Crochet Bracelet

Updated on August 4, 2011

Thinking of making crocheted friendship bracelets? Why not crochet this very simple friendship ring bracelets! These are made of plarn obtained from transparent plastic bags. If its transparent, why the colors, you may ask. I crocheted it together with polyester thread. Cool, right? My girlfriends from college loved it when I gave it to them.

What You Need

Skill Level:

Easy

Materials:

Transparent plarn cut into 1/8-in strips

polyester thread of any color

16 pcs of 1.0-cm metal rings

1 pc 12-mm lobster lock

Crochet Hook:

Steel Hook No. 7

Others:

Tapestry Needle

Long Nose Plier

Project Instructions

Crochet Instructions

Join the plarn and polyester thread to a metal ring.

Ch 1, 6 sc in ring.

(6 sc in the next metal ring) 13x.

12 sc around the last metal ring.

(6 sc in the next metal ring) 14x.

Sl st to ch-1.

Finishing

Your FO by now must be twisty, it won't lie flat. To make it do so, iron the bracelet between two pieces of paper until it sticks to the paper. You have to keep checking. Otherwise, the plarn will be melted, the crochet details will be lost in the process and the paper will stick to your bracelet. And it's not easy to remove. Drawing paper seems to work best for me because its thick enough it can distribute heat slowly.

Assembly

Attach the remaining metal rings at one end. On these, attach the lobster lock.

BFF Connection

I attended a college reunion and brought many crochet bracelets with me to give to my college classmates. The strange thing is that all of my college BFF's chose this particular design.

This is the BFF Bracelet my college best friend chose.

This is made from the same pattern except that its made from green plarn only.

Another college BFF got this. She was our class president.

      I don't have any plarn, but I bet these would look beautiful with cotton or silk yarn. Will add them to the craft list of things to make for my girls.
