Popcorn Bracelet (written using US crochet terms)
You will need
♥Yarn of your choice, for this example I used bamboo tape
♥Button for the closure on the bracelet
♥Size 4mm and 3.5mm hooks (adjust if you are using slightly thinner yarn, such as DK)
Using the larger hook, crochet a length of chains long enough to wrap around your wrist (remember the yarn will stretch slightly - I made approximately 28chains)
Now swap to the smaller hook and single crochet into the second chain from the hook, and then SC into each chain across
Turn your work: Row 2 - (this is going to consist of SC stitches and Popcorn stitches)
Chain 1 and Sc into first stitch in row, now work a popcorn stitch into the second stitch.
Note: to make a popcorn stitch:- work 5 Double Crochet stitches into the second stitch , drop the loop from your hook and insert hook from back to front in the top of the first dc of group (see below)
... pull dropped loop through stitch (a slip stitch really) (for further clarification see this Link for instructions)
continue the pattern of SC, Popcorn, SC, Popcorn.etc..across entire row, your bracelet should now look like this:-
Turn your bracelet, you are now ready to work the 3rd and final row.
row 3:- ch 1 and SC into each stitch across row (working into the top Slip Stitch of each Popcorn stitch and each Single Crochet from previous row)
At the end of row 3 you now need to make a loop for your button to go through. Chain 4 (or more or less depending on the size of your button) and join to make a loop using a slip stitch (see below)
Sew your button onto the other end of the bracelet
Make some more in different colours and stack to your hearts content!!
