Learn How to Make Crochet Bracelets
Crochet bracelets are easy to make and provide endless opportunities to customize. They can be old fashioned and lacy or modern and stylized like the ones pictured here. Each style or pattern can then be further personalized with colors and trim. The projects work up so fast that many crocheters become addicted to creating and experimenting with different threads, colors and styles. Watch out, you may have to open a store!
You can find a complete step-by-step tutorial for these unique designs at The Purl Bee.
Tailored Yet Old Fashioned
I love old fashioned, but not fussy. This exactly fits that requirement. I want a dozen of these in every color.

Who knew Granny could be so stylish
I love this modern take on crochet's ever iconic granny squares. I also instantly fall in love with anything made in miniature. Hmmm, what color combinations would I use for this one?

Vintage Crochet Pattern to Make Necklace, Bracelet and Earring Set - Vintage Crocheted Jewelry Pattern
Here is a pattern for a vintage more traditional style of crocheted bracelet. Every pattern can be customized. What would a bead between each "leaf" look like? How about doubling or tripling the rows or simply sewing several together for wider cuffs?
