The Kisses N Hugs Bracelet
I know how much you love texture! If you're familiar with my Kisses N Hugs collection, you know there's lots of texture in those patterns! I've designed a cowl and some fingerless gloves with a similar stitch sequence. But I'm not done yet! Keep an eye out for a hat, coming soon. For now, though, I wanted to design a pattern for warm weather, that you can make and wear now!
The beauty of this bracelet/cuff is how customizable it is! You can make it a wider cuff or a more narrow bracelet. It can be made longer to become an anklet! And by using different colors and button styles, you can make it bright or more earthy. I'm just so excited to share this with you because there are so many possibilities for you to really make it your own!
If you are a more visual learner, I've also included a video tutorial of the 7" bracelet!
There is an inexpensive ad-free PDF available on Ravelry! The PDF includes instructions for the 6 1/2", 7", 7 1/2", 8" bracelets and 9 1/2 " anklet
Level of Difficulty: Easy
15 SCX ST's in 4"
17 1/2 Rows in 4"
Available widths: 1" bracelet or 1 1/4" cuff
Available lengths: 6 1/2" bracelet, 7" bracelet, 7 1/2" bracelet, 8" bracelet, 9 1/2" anklet
The instructions that follow are for the 7" L x 1 1/4" W cuff.
SCX: Insert your hook into the desired ST, YO from above instead of from below the yarn, pull through the ST, YO and pull through
PS: YO, insert your hook into the ST, YO and pull up a loop (you now have 3 loops on your hook), YO, insert the hook into the same ST, YO and pull up a loop (you have 5 loops on your hook), YO, insert the hook into the same ST, YO and pull up a loop (you have 7 loops on your hook), YO, insert the hook into the same ST, YO and pull up a loop (you have 9 loops on your hook), YO and pull through all 9 loops on your hook
How to Make the 7" Kisses N Hugs Bracelet/Cuff
Row 1: CH 29, then SCX into the 3rd ST from the hook and each ST across (27 ST's), CH 1 and turn
NOTE: For the narrower 1" bracelet/anklet, only work Row 1 once, and omit Row 2!
Row 2: Repeat Row 1, (27 ST's), CH 1 and turn
Row 3: Work 1 PS into the first ST, then 1 SCX into the next ST, *1 PS into the next ST, 1 SCX into the next ST*, continue from * to * across the row; your last ST should be a PS, (27 ST's), CH 1 and turn
Row 4: Work 1 SCX into each ST across (27 ST's), CH 1 and turn
NOTE: For the narrower 1" bracelet/anklet, you will stop at Row 4!
Row 5: Repeat Row 4, (27 ST's), then SC into the turning CH from Row 3, CH 3 for the button hole (CH 4 or 5 for the narrower 1" bracelet), SC into the end ST of Row 1, SL ST into the 1st CH ST from Row 1
Tie off your yarn and weave in the ends
Time to sew the button on! Sew the button on the end that's opposite the button loop, between the first 2 puff stitches.
Ta daaaaa! Your own Kisses N Hugs Bracelet! I really hope that you love this pattern and make lots of bracelets/cuffs/anklets for the summer! I'd love to see how yours come out!
That's all for now. Please stay safe and take care of you!
