The other day I saw a woman wearing this adorable cuff bracelet with tons of buttons on it. It was so colorful and cute that I immediately decided I needed to make my own version of it to share with all of you. Hence, the pretty in red bracelet easy crochet free pattern for beginners was born!
Now, on this example bracelet, I just used one button, but I have a few more that I whipped up where I added a ton of buttons to make them more decorative.
I figured it was easier to show you how to do the pattern with only a limited number of buttons, so that it doesn’t look so overwhelming. Because, really, this is one of the easiest patterns ever for beginners!
The simple stitch makes it the perfect crochet accessory to start with and, if you’re a bit more advanced, you can always jazz it up with a few texture stitches. The important thing to remember is that if you make a mistake, you can always take out the stitches and try again.
As with most of my summer patterns, I decided to use cotton yarn for this bracelet since it’s hot here and I didn’t want the synthetic yarn chafing my wrist. The red cotton yarn is so pretty and colorful anyway, that it looks great when it’s turned into a summer crochet accessory!
As I mentioned, you can add one button, two buttons, or a ton of buttons if you choose to do so. Just keep in mind that the more buttons you add, the heavier the bracelet will be on your wrist. I also like adding different size buttons that are all within the same color family. I’m finding that it really adds some visual texture to the bracelet that makes it eye-catching. Everyone comments on it!
