Notes

The bracelet is a bit stretchy and is meant to fit snuggly on the wrist. It will appear small. The number of rubber bands will directly relate to the size of the wrist. When you’ve added the number of bands you think are about right, simply wrap it around the wrist to check it out. I made these three for me with seven rubber bands, but my wrists are tinier than average. I suspect that one or two more would be necessary for an average wrist. Probably one more. I made one for my 10-year-old (because he begged me LOL) and I used five rubber bands. It seemed crazy small but fit him perfectly.

If you’ve never worked single crochet around something, it’s very easy. Just insert your hook into the center of the rubber band, yarn over, pull a loop through, yarn over and pull through two loops on hook. The single crochet will be worked directly onto and around the rubber band.

Instructions

First Rubberband: Join thread with sl st around band, ch 1, 10 sc around band (the goal here is to cover the band half way, use more stitches if you happen to be using a finer thread).

Second Rubberband: Bring second rubberband up close to work, 10 sc around second band.

Repeat as for second rubberband until you have the number required.

Without twisting bracelet, join with sl st to first sc of first band.

Opposite side of rubberband: Going back to the last rubberband worked, 10 sc in opposite side of rubberband (entire band covered now).

Repeat for opposite side of all remaining bands, sl st again to first sc, fasten off.

Finishing

With yarn needle, weave in ends securely.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDF's of my patterns. You can, of course, view, print ,paste to a word processor, convert to PDF's, etc, on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
