Crochet Covered Bangle
Vote for this contest contender!
This is a super fast and easy stitch; then you simply add buttons and sew it on!
Total Time: 1.5 hours
- 1 oz crochet thread
- size G hook
- 7-8 buttons
- 1 bangle, either plastic or wood
- darning needle
- I double my thread so I can use a larger hook and it takes less time. If you want it single, adjust your hook size.
- For this I crocheted a chain of 10. Then I made a single in the first chain, skipped one, chained one and made my next in the 3rd from the hook, across. This is the linen stitch.
- Before you proceed, measure your work to make sure it will wrap around the bangle. It is important you don't go over, but under a bit is fine. You want it to be tight so it fits well. Too big and it will not stay in place.
- Once you know your gauge is good, continue the strip till you have the length you need. Now it's time to embellish.
- I picked some pastel buttons I got at the Dollar tree. I thought I was being so clever putting the blue in the middle, and the other three out from that center one. Well, that meant that the two pinks are next to each other so don't make that mistake!
- Sew your buttons or other embellishments on with thread. Then sew up the two ends to each other.
- Slip the bangle inside the band and begin to sew the long edges together. You can move it over to the side for ease of sewing, then slide it over to make sure the buttons are on top. Weave in your ends and you are done. N-JOY!
- In the next few weeks, I will be making others for summer, fall, and winter.
