Free Crochet Bracelet Pattern

Just added a free crochet bracelet tutorial to my Craftsy store.  Make and stack all kinds of different bracelets with this crochet bracelet pattern.  You can make them with or without the beads and with any type of thread.  The result is a simple tie on bracelet to fit anyone.  This is written in tutorial form and comes in a PDF document for instant download.

Tutorial includes:
-Clearly written step-by-step instructions with high quality photos to assist you.  American Standard crochet terms.

-You only need to know how to make basic crochet stitches and do simple braiding.  I give instructions on how to crochet beads if you have never done this before.

- Can be made to fit any size wrist.  This is a simple tie on bracelet.

-The crocheted part of the bracelet measures a little over 5 inches long.  The tutorial explains how to adjust the pattern to make the crocheted part of the bracelet longer or shorter.

-You will need crochet thread, size 3.25mm hook (or appropriate size hook for the thread you are using), size 6/0 seed beads, glue, scissors and ruler.  I used Tahki Cotton Classic Yarn which is a DK weight cotton yarn but you can use any thread you like.  You may need to adjust the pattern depending on which type of thread you use, but the tutorial explains how to do this.  Hope you enjoy!

Crochet Strawberry Pouch

Here is another of my crochet patterns from  my Etsy shop.  These crochet strawberry pouches are great for storing all kinds of things. My kids love to use them to carry their toys with them to church and other places. These work great as crochet coin pouches too.  Here is a cute little guy that tags along with us sometimes. An amigurumi doll or animal would be perfect for one of these pouches. 

Here is a picture of the pouch when it's closed,
