Best Friends Forever Crochet Bracelet
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
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
Steel Hook No. 7
Long Nose Plier
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.
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.
Attach the remaining metal rings at one end. On these, attach the lobster lock.
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.
Another college BFF got this. She was our class president.
