Crochet Pattern: Indian BraceletBy Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 12 Comments
|I have always been proud of my Cherokee heritage. Of course, I’m equally proud of the Irish and Scottish blood in me as well. But as autumn rolls around we tend to remember the vital role the Native Americans had in the settling of the New World. I love this time of year and I look forward to hearing the stories once again! This bracelet is an example of my love for the season and the events surrounding it. I hope you enjoy crocheting it!|

Cut 2-16” strands of colors B and C, and 1-16” strand of color A. Attach 1 strand of colors B and C to left side, then attach the three leftover strands of colors A, B, and C to the right side. For instructions on how to do this, see next paragraph. Tie a knot on each side of the bracelet close to the end. Trim strands even.
How to Attach Strands
Fold thread in half. Insert hook into selected stitch, loop strand at the halfway point over the hook and draw through the stitch partway, yarn over with both strands and pull through. Tug to tighten.
