Summer Crochet Band

design by Mimi Alelis

(this pattern is also posted on my Facebook page)

 

This band can be used as a sporty or casual bracelet or hair accessory. This can also be used for a cell phone strap, mini bag strap, dog collar, etc. Embroidery floss normally used in cross-stitch projects was used here because it is easily available, it has a nice sheen and comes in more attractive colors. Cotton threads will work nicely too.

 

Materials:

6-strand Anchor embroidery floss, solid color (A), 1 skein

6-strand Anchor embroidery floss, multicolor (B), 1 skein

crochet hook size 2mm

Button for bracelet

Barette clip for hair accessory

Finished measurements:

Bracelet, 6 inches by 5/8 inches

Barette cover, 3 1/2 inches by 5/8 inches

Stitches used:

Ch - chain, Sl st - slip stitch, Sc - single crochet

Puff st - insert hook in stitch and pull up a loop, (yarn over, insert hook in same stitch, yo and pull up a loop) 3 times, there are now 8 loops on hook; yo and draw through all loops on hook.
