FREE CROCHET PATTERN - 3-Strand Braided Tie Wrap Friendship Bracelet by BrennaAnnHandmade


Happy Friday! I'm super excited to share this new, fun summer DIY pattern with you all!


The best part is that these 3-Strand Braided Tie Wrap Friendship Bracelets can be made in an endless amount of color combinations! Which would you choose? :)


Since they're made of soft (but inexpensive!) embroidery thread, they're not only very comfortable, but are also really easy to wear - just tie a regular knot & go!


You're not going to believe how quick, easy, & fun these bracelets are to make! You'll want to crochet them in a million different color combinations, for everyone you know! ;)



Are you ready to get started? Great! Let's go! :)


Materials needed:

- Any 3 different colors of embroidery thread you'd like (1 bundle will make quite a few bracelets)

- A size 0 crochet hook (3.25 mm)

- A pair of scissors


***Note: this is written for a size women's small wrist. To make your bracelet smaller or larger, just chain less or more (7 chains per inch)***


Directions:

1. With your 1st color thread, make a slip knot & chain 60 evenly across. 



2. Cut yarn leaving a little tail & pull through to tighten.




3. Repeat steps 1 & 2, with your other 2 colors of embroidery thread.


4. Once you have all 3 strands completed, hold them together a 1 end (make sure they're all facing the same direction) & tightly make a regular knot right at the base of their tails.



5. Making sure your strands aren't twisted & all facing the same direction all the way across, repeat step 4 on the other tail side.


6. Trim the tails to about half an inch in length.



Ta da! You're new, super fun & colorful, easy & quick 3-Strand Braided Tie Wrap Friendship Bracelet is complete! :)






Happy making everybody!
