Pattern Translation – Heart bracelet video tutorial

Found this on YouTube by SIMPLE CROCHET – it’s a fairly simple bracelet. You will need to translate the following stitches:

Single Crochet – UK DC

Half Double – UK HTR

Triple – UK Double Treble

Double Crochet – UK TR

Beware: there are also some increase stitches in there but she’s put lovely slow-motion sections in the video so you shouldn’t have any trouble.

Increase stitches are sneaky ways of getting extra stitches in without making it obvious.  They’re dead easy and really useful, plus also can give a lovely shape you wouldn’t get any other way. I use them a lot for flower petals.

For the bracelet section, she uses an ICORD. The video explains how to do this technique, but PlanetJune also has a great tutorial. If an Icord is a bit advanced for you at this point, you could easily make the bracelet some other way – chains, chains + a couple of rows of DC or HTR or TR. You can make this section as simple or as complicated as you like. Don’t stress it!

You could make belts or headbands this way too, and add as many hearts as you like in contrasting colours, perhaps. You could crochet around an existing bracelet or even add the heart to the broomstick bracelet we looked at yesterday!
