Thanks for all your lovely encouraging words about my bangles ,
or I should call them my handless gloves (as christened by Vic).
As promised I finally put pen to paper so to speak and have written the pattern.
This bangle pattern is easy peasy crochet. And weighing in at less than 10 grams, it's great for using up those leftover bits in the stash.
The cotton I used was an 8 ply and I used a 3.5mm hook.
U.K. terms used.
Chain 40 in main colour. Slip stitch to first chain ( making sure not to twist the chain)
(note: there is no turning involved. It is worked in the round)
Row 1. Chain 1. Half treble in next 39 chains.Slip stitch to top of first chain.
Row 2. Chain 1. Half treble in next 39 chains. Slip stitch to top of first chain. Fasten off.
Row 3. Slip stitch 2nd colour to first chain. Chain 1. Half treble next 39 chains. Slip stitch to top of first chain. Fasten off.
Row 4. Slip stitch main colour to first chain. Chain 1. Half treble next 39 chains and slip stitch to top of first chain.
Row 5. Chain 1. Half treble next 39 chains and slip stitch to top of first chain. Fasten off.
Now fold in half (as in picture below).
On the home run now. Make sure all loose ends are placed inside the bangle.
Join the 2 edges with a double crochet stitch into each chain and opposing loop. Fasten off.
Pull loose end into the inside.
Now you'll need to "unflatten" the bangle by kind of "squashing" it into shape. Love the techy terms!
And hey Presto!
I hope that was clear?
Now you may find you need to increase or decrease the number of chains depending on your desired size.
The below bangles were made in wool/mohair and I only chained 35.
Any questions please contact me. If you do use this pattern I would love to see your creations. And a link back here would be appreciated too.
And just one more...
PS Have you noticed I've opened up an etsy shop? See the sidebar.It is still undergoing some setup(until I've worked out how to do a few things).
