maRRose - CCC: friendship braceletsThings you’ll need:
* any kind of yarn (great scrap project/stash buster) + crochet hook (size as suggested on yarn-label). I used “Katia Capri”, a 100% mercerized cotton, hooksize 3,5 (US: E/4, UK/Canada: 9)
* beads (I used 11 per bracelet)
* darning needle, pair of siccors

Thread the beads onto your yarn, push them toward the skein of yarn;
Chain 50 + 1 (= turning chain), turn;
Double crochet (US: sc) 25 + 1 turning chain, turn your work;

Double crochet 1, repeat from * 10 times;

Make 2 or 3 knots at both end sides of the bracelets, as close to the chains as possible;
sew in other end(s) (back stitching, making sure they’re secured tightly).

  • Am I correct in assuming these are UK stitch terms? I made as shown and the bracelet is super wide. I am in US.

    • You most definitely are, Cathye; sorry for the confusion (it does say UK versus US somewhere in the pattern, but I clearly see why you got confused)!
      Happy crocheting! Marianne xx
