Today, I was in no mood to work on my WIPs. It feels like I have been crocheting blankets f-o-r-e-v-e-r and even though it’s getting pretty cold over here (at least for me) I really wanted to do something else. Something easy. Something fast.
So to get around the blankets I started making crochet bracelets instead, while using the blankets patterns (what a tricky thing to do – don’t you think? :)). The only suitable yarn I had was RedHeart Cotton Yarn (“Miami“) in weird colors and it turned out to be perfect. As always, J would model for me.
Here the bracelets come:
The star stitch (pale yellow), the popcorn stitch (blue), popcorn stitch with beads (pale yellow), and bobbles (pink). Later, I would make another bracelet with the star stitch, as I didn’t like the first one all that much (but J did, so I wasn’t supposed to unravel it …)
I would make a purple one, that goes twice around the wrist, with only chain stitches (and slip stitches in the 2nd row). In fact, I might try this in green with little leaves and a crochet flower instead of a button.
However, my favorite is the popcorn stitch bracelet without the beads.
Any other suggestions anyone?
