Free Crochet Bracelet Pattern · Quick, Easy, & Adjustable DIY Tutorial!

by - May 02, 2021


Summer is coming, and so are craft fairs, fun trendy accessories, and quick yarn-scrap makes!  

Following the crochet lace headband I designed last month, I decided to branch out into making more accessories, and played around with bracelets.  It was so much fun, because I created a no-sew lacy bracelet that is quick and easy to work up... and it uses just a small amount of yarn.

Check it out -- it's an adjustable crochet bracelet!




This Bracelet Design is...

  • Quick to work up
  • Beginner-friendly 
  • Lacy and sweet
  • Made with only yarn (no metal clasps/closures needed!)
  • Able to fit any and all wrist sizes
  • Adjustable 
  • Versatile and can be made with different types of yarn weights, fibers, colors, and crochet hook sizes 
  • Easily customizable with embellishments (e.g., beads, tassels, buttons, appliques)
  • Great for gifting
  • Available as a PDF pattern that includes over 36 photo references
  • Available as a full video tutorial too!

Easily Customize It!

There are so many ways to customize this fun pattern.  You can make it with different yarn colors, weights, hook sizes, and embellishments (e.g., beads, buttons, tassels, appliques, charms) as well!  


I'm tempted to make a lucky Chinese bracelet with red embroidery thread and gold beads to symbolize good luck and fortune! 

Below you can see the differences in the bracelets that are made from the same pattern, just from using different yarn weights and crochet hooks!  


As you can see, the dainty and feminine lacy bracelet made on the left with embroidery thread can work as a lovely fashion accessory for girls and women.  


The one on the right, made with medium weight yarn, is a lot bulkier and can be a great unisex bracelet too.


If you want, you can even make a whole bunch of bracelets using yarn scraps and mix-and-match them!  It's fun to experiment with the different types of yarn and hook sizes to see what you'll come out with.  Here are all three worn together...



Make it for...

These lovely accessories can be made as friendship bracelets, party favors, or thank you gifts.  They also make lovely presents for birthdays, Christmas, Mother's Day, Appreciation Days, and other holidays!  They can be made in any and all sizes to fit babies, toddlers, kids, children, teens, and adults.  Due to their quick-to-work-up nature, you can easily stock up for craft shows and craft fairs by making a bunch of these in one sitting!

Let's begin!

  1. Start with a long yarn tail. Chain an odd number to the desired length of the bracelet. (Example: I made 27 ch using fine #2 weight yarn and a 3.25mm hook.) 

  2. Ch 1 more, then hdc in 2nd ch from hook. (Sk a st. Sc+dc in the next st) repeat across. Insert a hdc in the last st. 

  3. Turn your piece 180 degrees so that you are now working on the other side of the chain you made in Step 1. Ch 1, then insert a hdc in the first ch. (Sk a st. Sc+dc in the next st, which is a chain gap that has a a sc+dc in the previous step) repeat across. Insert a hdc in the last st. 

  4. Fasten off with a long yarn tail that matches the length of the starting yarn tail. 

  5. End the bracelet using the adjustable clasp method, shown in my video tutorial below.  Alternatively, there are many other ways to end an adjustable bracelet.  You can check out this "Tie Friendship Bracelets" Article, or this Button Closure / Adjustable Closure video tutorial.

  1. This pattern does not look like the picture. I will check revelry, but the pattern given on this page is just dc’s separated by a chain, definitely not as pictured
