Crochet Pattern: Vented Bracelet

By Candace – 8 Comments
Here’s a simple bracelet good for newer crocheters. It also gives you a reason to dive into your button collection and finally use those odd leftover buttons that are too nice to just get rid of. The pattern will create a simple openwork texture that will be fun to wear for adults and children.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 7 1/2″ (19 cm) long, 1″ (2.5 cm) wide

Medium Weight Yarn (approximately 10 yards)
Crochet Hook G (4.00 mm)

4 dc = 1″ (2.5 cm)
3 rows = 1 1/2″ (4 cm)

    I am so totally lost. At row 1 not sure what it means close to semi circle 6dc? Then at row 2 flat side of semi circle? I may be classed as “before” beginner. Appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks, Esther

    • Candace says:

      Instead of forming a circle when the ring is drawn closed, the stitches should form a semicircle. After that, you make the next row in the flat side of the half-round (The sides of the first and last DC) the way you might work an edging on the side of a flat project like a blanket.

      The stitches shown after a colon in the row are just the stitch count for that row.

    I love your patterns and would love to keep a copy of the ones i like, and would like to make again, but i am unable to print them..HELP..thanks

      Hi Ellie, you can use the print function in your internet browser. For most browsers there’s a menu bar at the top, where you can click on “File” and then click “Print”. Each page on Crochet Spot is coded to be printer friendly so it’ll print out neatly.

    Rows 3-4 say 4dc in each dc – yet the total is 4. Poorly written. : )
    The bracelet is cute.

    On Rows 3-4, did you mean “1 dc in each dc”? If you make 4 dc in each dc, you’ll have 16 dc. Please clarify for me. Thanks!
