I wanted to make a special little gift for a special little girl. So what do little girls like … hmmm … pink, flowers, jewelry … yes!
I really hope she likes it!
Crochet Flower Bracelet
Here’s what you need:
- Size 10 crochet thread
- 2 mm steel hook
- Sewing needle
- Jewelry closure
Click here to reference the Crochet Abbreviations Chart.
Add this pattern to your Ravelry library.
Since my bracelet is for a little girl, I only made 5 motifs. Make the number you would need to fit around the wrist of your intended wearer.
Here is the pattern to work the flowers, but see below for different joining options before you get started.
Ch 6, join with Sl st in furthest ch from hook to form a ring.
Round 1: Ch 1 (does not count as st), work 16 scs into ring, join in 1st sc of round — 16 scs.
Round 2: Ch 1 (does not count as st), beginning in same st as join, *work [1 sc, ch 3, 1 sc], skip next st, rep from * 7 more times, join in 1st sc of round — 8 ch-3 spaces.
Round 3: Ch 1 (does not count as st), work 5 scs in each ch-3 sp around, join in 1st sc of round — 40 sts.
To join the flowers into a bracelet, you can simply make all your motifs and then sew them together with a needle and thread or you can use the join as you go method (JAYGO).
To use the JAYGO method, complete your first flower as indicated above. But for your second flower and each after that, repeat Rounds 1 and 2 as above but work Round 3 as follows:
Round 3: Ch 1 (does not count as st), *work 5 scs in next ch-3 sp, repeat from * 5 more times, **in next ch-3 sp [work 2 scs, drop loop from hook and insert into 3rd st of petal on the flower you want to join it to and pull through the loop, continue working 3 sc in same ch-3 sp], repeat from ** for final petal, join in 1st sc of round — 40 sts.
Using a sewing needle and your thread, sew bracelet closures to each side of your bracelet. Weave in all ends securely.
everyone like flowers . flowers attract the people fast.flowers are beautiful gift for people flowers makes the world beautiful
I plan on making this for my grandaughter. I have lots of little tiny crystal looking beads I plan on dressing it up a little. She loves all the glitter…lol
I have discovered a new way to do the crotchet
It’s exciting.each day I learn
Thank you for posting this pattern. Once I got the hang of it, it became much easier. My JAYGO could use some improvement but that’s why I’ll be making these as gifts for sure. To see how mine turned out please visit my blog https://turtleburgercrochet.wordpress.com/2016/04/27/mothers-day-part-1/

Your bracelet turned out really beautiful! You said you had a problem with the JAYGO method, so how did you finally join the flowers to make it look so good? I would love to make some of these for Christmas.
I am loving this pattern! However, I find the JAYGO method a little confusing. How do you make the second petal? As in, do you chain 6 and then continue as usual?
Hello! This is an adorable Pattern! I love it and look forward to making it for some special little ladies in my life! Would you mind if I made some to sell at vendor events? I would add a tag saying who wrote the pattern with this URL.
Hi De 🙂 You are most welcome to sell any of the bracelets you make … good luck!
How does it go on? Does it stretch a little or do you use some kind of closure such as a loop and ball, etc.?

Hi Kara, I love your bracelet. And it’s so nice you can make it very quick.
It inspired me to make an orange bracelet, for Kingsday here in The Netherlands. I’ve also added your link to my blogpost (http://hipmethaken.blogspot.nl/2015/04/armband.html).
Yay! It came out great!! Thanks for sharing 🙂
If you do the JAYGO, after you finish the first petal do you just Ch 6, join with Sl st in furthest ch from hook to form a ring and then do round 1 and 2? I am a little confused on the joining, thank you!

I love this bracelet pattern -so live and perfect for a girl. Def. going to make it!
Thread crochet has always intimidated me. Then I saw this. I wanted to try making one to see if I could do it….besides what great surprise gifts for friends if I could. I have already made and joined two motifs (I hate joining things and have never done join as you go) with the join as you go method and I love, love, love how easy this is!! I can’t wait to get more thread in more colors than just the beige I had on hand! I am going to make a ton of these and keep them in my bag to have something to work on in short spare moments of time that is otherwise wasted when I’m running errands. Thank you so much for the free pattern and (for me) easy to follow instructions. If I do make some for my Etsy shop I will make sure to credit this site. You fantabulous!
Is it possible for you to post a video tutorial? Thanks 🙂
Hi! 🙂 I am trying to make this pattern. After I follow the first step i.e. doing 16 single crochet into a ring, I am having trouble in visually identifying all the 16 stitches in order to do the next step i.e [the sc, chain 3, sc] in alternate stitch. Since the central hole is small, won’t the 16 stitches overlap on each other? Please advise 🙂 Thanks!
Hi Aditi 🙂 The stitches may be close together but they shouldn’t overlap each other. If it helps, perhaps place a stitch marker to help identify the stitched you need to work in. Hope that helps.
Hi Kara! Thanks for your response. I tried by placing a marker. I reach that marker after doing 12 stitches. The remaining 4 stitches are on the top of the first four.
I will really appreciate if you can please post a video tutorial of this pattern. I really love this pattern and I am trying hard to make it 🙂
Push the older stitches back so u get some space to make the remaining stitches.
I love this. I wish I could crochet better.

Hi, I love this bracelet! I am planning on opening an etsy shop. Do you mind if I sell the finished product? If i so, am I supposed to link back to you? I’m new to selling and I didn’t see what your preference was.
You may absolutely sell your finished bracelets from the pattern. I would love if you could credit my site with the pattern (www.petalstopicots.com). And if you send me the link to your listing, I would be happy to promote it on my Facebook page as well. I wish you much success!!
I wanted to say again how adorable this is!! 😀
I’m so glad you think so!

The bracelet is adorable. What weight is the thread. I know they are listed by number. No,10 . No 3, etc. is it a thick or thin thread? Thanks
It is a number 10 weight thread. Hope that helps 🙂
How much thread does it take to make one bracelet for a child and an adult? I need to make two children and one adult so I need to know how much to purchase..
The little balls I used are only 45 meters a piece and I barely made a dent in them. I don’t have an exact yardage amount but it wasn’t much at all. Hope that helps 🙂
Thanks Kara for the reply! It does make sense! I just liked your facebook page, I will post a picture when done. Thanks again.
Yay! I love seeing finished pics 🙂
Thanks for the pattern, very cute. I tried twice but ended up with 6 petals instead of 8. I don´t see how I can repeat 7 times on to the initial 16 stitches, since every repetition hold 3 stitches ( I understand that from *work [1 sc, ch 3, 1 sc], skip next st, rep from * 7 more times). Then if I ‘use’ 3 stitches 7 times I would need 21 initial stitches…OMG, I hope this makes sense…the thing is, I always end up with a hexagon instead of a flower..
Hi Marta 🙂 Let me try to help … Stitches within brackets indicate a group of stitches that need to be worked in one place. So, [1 sc, ch 3, 1 sc] is all worked in 1 st, then the next is skipped. You do this a total of 8 times and it should cover the 16 sts from the previous round. Make sense?
thank you for sharing. i love it. i already pint it.
Hope you enjoy it!
Kara, this is sssssoooo gorgeous. I’m going to show it to my daughter when she gets home….I think she’d love a bracelet like this!
I hope she likes it!

Kara this bracelet is so elegant! I love how your center flower shares the colors of your other flowers!
Thanks so much, Marilyn!

What a sweet bracelet!! Pinned!
Thanks so much 🙂
Hi, I’m a crochet newbie. Would you mind translating how to do the following: work 5 scs in each ch-3 sp around.
(In my brain I see this as work 5 scs in every 3 ch sp. I’m sure I’m wrong)
Hi Kat 🙂 I will try to clarify. Ch-3 sp refers to the space created from making 3 chains in the previous round. So, you would work 5 single crochets in that space. Make sense?
The way this works in crochet, is you take that ch-3 chain from the previous round, and you work 5 scs into that chain. When I do something like that, I work the scs (or whatever stitch) by sort of wrapping them around the chain. Instead of sticking the hook into the chains themselves, I catch the working thread under the chain. Make sense? It totally hides the chain and creates an interesting look.
Simply adorable! Thanks for sharing with us 🙂
My pleasure, Stephanie!
