Another bracelet approved of by The Loud Daughter. She’s 15 so is the source of all authority on What Is Cool and What Is Not Cool.
The designer made hers with twine! The pattern is simple – where it asks for an sc, crochet a UK DC. Where it asks for a dc, crochet a UK TR. Where it asks for an hdc, crochet a UK HTR.
This bracelet is all in UK DC, and is a great way to learn the broomstick technique. You can use all sorts to achieve the look – not necessarily a broomstick! You could use a 12 mm crochet hook, a big fat knitting needle, crayons, anything that generates a fat stitch like the one in the picture.
The pattern and photo tutorial come from The Evolution of Home, a superb craft blog, with lots of other crafty ideas too (not just crochet), including a piece of artwork from toilet rolls … that actually looks good!
Survival Bracelets are, apparently, trendy atm, and this page will show you how to make one. The tutorial is mercifully quick and easy because the page is full of supremely irritating bells and whistles (turn your volume down!).
You can make this from pretty much any fabric, it seems. I’m going to try t-shirt yarn, but the tutorial uses para-cord. You could even add beads to girlify them.
The only translation you’ll need is: sc = UK DC. Easy!
This is the easiest pattern you’ll ever come across. To make chain bracelets, chain enough to circle the wrist, then fasten off. Done!
