Crochet Wristband

For absolute beginners this crochet wristband is a very easy way of practising your new found skills of forming chains and slip stitches. Kids will love wearing these delightfully simple wrist ornaments, very similar to friendship bracelets.

Instructions for this easy crochet wristband

Do you want to be the best Granny, grandad, aunty uncle, big sis ever?

These are so simple to make and you can knock them up right in front of any little persons eyes in a jiffy using yarn that they choose themselves out of your bits and bobs bag

You will literally just need scraps of yarn to make this.  Your kids or grandkids will think you are super cool and clever as they rummage through your odd ends to choose the colours they want and you whip them up into a bracelet for each of them in no time at all

Using DK yarn (UK weight) and a 5.5mm hook make a slip knot. Leave a long end for the tie.

Make a multiple of 4 chain + 1.

I used 25 chain for the one in the photo. If  you are making it for a child, you will need around 17chain.  Fasten off and again leave a long length for the tie. This is chain A

With another yarn, make a slip knot again with a long length for the tie. Slip stitch into the first chain of chain A. Make 3 chain. *Miss 3 chain on chain A. Slip stitch into next chain *

Repeat from * to * to the end. Fasten off and leave a long length of yarn for the tie.

Take a third length of yarn and cut it to the length of the whole piece including the ties then weave it through the chain length.

Alternatively use a twisted cord or a length of ribbon

Plait the ties and then tie a knot at the end. Trim the ends off evenly.

If you like, you can add a bit of bling by threading beads onto the centre yarn before threading it through the chains.

By making it longer it can be made into a choker.

Use your imagination and search out pretty shiny yarns or cords, thread it with jewels, beads and/or crystals and it will be fit for an adult to wear too, either tied at the back, or with beads threaded on the ties and tied at the front.
