I was recently looking for a gift for a creative friend and I googled “gift for creative person.” The first suggestion that popped up was statement jewelry.
Wouldn’t this make a great gift? Imagine your creative friend or family member opening this cool handmade gift. They will feel so special and will appreciate that you recognize their creative side. I’m sure they are going to love it.
In fact, this free crochet bracelet pattern is my gift to you, my creative friend.
You deserve gifts! So make one for yourself.
When you wear it around the city you’ll get tons of compliments from other artistic people. It’s the perfect art piece to wear to a high end craft fair or funky new restaurant.
I had only crocheted blouses and amigurumis so trying accessories was really appealingLenith
Story Behind the Design
The seed for this free crochet bracelet pattern was planted while I was looking through a book of crochet borders (one of my favorite things to do) and saw this really cool knotted border. I instantly loved it. It just looked so new and fresh to me.
At first I tried to incorporate the border into a top but it was too chunky. Then I tried it on a necklace but it was too wild.
I like to wear the really truly crazy stuff around my wrist. And when I started experimenting with the border on a bracelet pattern this design clicked into place.
I added the slip stitch surface crochet for a pop of color. And speaking of color, you may be surprised that I went for brown and white on this design as I usually go for brighter colors. But this bracelet has a naturally wild and free feeling so I decided to go with earth tones.
I used two colors but definitely feel free to try the bracelet in more colors or less colors. And speaking of customization, sizes for 8 different wrist circumferences are included.

Thread other end up through either remaining hole. Thread same end down through remaining diagonal hole. Pull ends so button is positioned tight against end of chain. Tie ends under button. Weave in ends using tapestry needle.
