FREE Bracelet Crochet Pattern with the Bullion Stitch
Here is a cute bracelet done up in the bullion stitch. This is my first project where I used a thread to make the bullion stitch. And I have to admit, it was a bit tricky at first. However, after my second bracelet, they came out looking fairly decent. Still room for improvement, but not too shabby.
With that said, you can crochet this bracelet in any yarn and hook size as it’s easy to adjust to any size in a simple multiple of two.
Another thing you could try is using a different color for the second round. And that means it’s the perfect pattern for cleaning up your smallest amounts of yarn. So why not give it a try and make a few for yourself and a few for your daughters.
