Retired - Breast Cancer Awareness Wrap Bracelet

PROJECT B1053
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
This pretty crocheted wrap bracelet is a rainbow of sparkling pink shades! It's the perfect subtle awareness accent that can be worn year round.
Instructions
  1. To begin, use a big eye needle and string your crystal bicone beads onto your pink pearl cotton (while it's still on the spool). Start with a crystal bead, then string a light rose, a rose, then a fuchsia bead. Then string a rose bead, and a light rose bead. Start again with crystal and continue the variegated pattern until you have strung 9 crystal beads, 16 light rose beads, 16 rose beads, and 8 fuchsia beads, ending with a crystal bead.
  2. Next, watch the video: How to Chain Stitch Crochet with Beads.
  3. Use a size 6 crochet hook to chain stitch 5 stitches. Then pick up your first bead and include it in your next chain stitch. Continue to crochet, including a bead in every 6th chain stitch until you've used all of your beads. Then create 5 more chain stitches and tie off your thread, leaving a bit of a tail.
  4. Thread one of your thread tails through a silver plated cord end crimp, pulling it out through the end past the loop. Add a tiny dab of E6000 glue to the end of your crochet work right before you pull it into the crimp tube.
  5. Crimp the end of the tube farther from the loop. Wipe away any excess glue. Allow to dry before continuing.
  6. Trim the thread that is coming out the top of your crimp.
  7. Repeat this process to attach a crimp to the other end of your crochet work.
  8. Use a silver plated 4mm, 21 gauge jump ring to attach one of your crimp loops to a silver plated curved lobster clasp.
  9. Attach another jump ring to the other crimp loop.
  10. Wrap your bracelet around your wrist about five times (depending on fit) and then fasten the clasp.
