Notes
1.To make Bracelet, a base of 15 rows of double crochet is worked first. Then eight ruffles are worked across rows of the base. Finally a buttonhole band is worked across one long edge and a button band is worked across the other long edge.
2.Beads and bells are threaded onto the working thread before some ruffles are started and are placed as the last row of the ruffle is worked. If you do not wish to use beads or small bells, work a ch-1 whenever instructed to “place bead” or “place bell”.
3.The Bracelet can be worked by reading the written instructions.
4.To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Fasten off old color.
