If you love jewelry and you know how to single crochet, then this is the pattern for you. With regular worsted weight yarn and a mere 15 minutes start to finish, you can create a one of a kind bangle bracelet.
Why not make one for every outfit? They require very small amounts of yarn. You can use up those scraps and be a frugal fashionista at the same time. Enjoy!
These are very easily adjusted for various sized wrists. Simply chain more or less when you begin. This pattern was written with an average 7 1/2" woman's wrist in mind.
Total Time: 15 minutes
Yield: The more the merrier!:)

- "g" crochet hook
- tiny amounts worsted weight #4 yarn
- embroidery needle for weaving in ends
- This pattern is meant to be crocheted very tightly. This is in order to achieve a "stiff" bangle.
- Chain 45.
- Being careful not to twist your chain, join with a slip stitch to your first chain. This creates your ring. This ring will look too big for your wrist at first. Don't worry, once it's finished it "shrinks" somehow.:)
- Ch 1, sc in same space as ch. Sc in each ch around until you reach the end. Join with a slip stitch in the back loop of your first sc.
- Ch 1, sc in same space and back loop only of each stitch around. See? Only the back loop. The reason for this is that it will leave a nice ridge and give your bangle a more textured look.
- Repeat last row 2 more times.
- Now please take the time to weave in your starting end. Make sure you do this on the "wrong" side, the side without the ridges.
- Fold your strip in half, see? Be sure the ridges are on the outside. This is the pretty side that you want to show when complete.
- Ch 1, slip stitch through "both" edges. You will be using only the back loop of the sc edge, and the single loop of your starting edge.
- Continue this all the way around until you have closed up your entire seam.
- Fasten off, weave your end on the inside of your bangle with your embroidery needle.
- See how nice?
- See your ridges?
- Mix and match.
- These would also make great gifts.
