Plastic rings, covered with single crochet, make for bold, modern jewelry. And they can be put together in so many different patterns.
Plastic rings, which are also sometimes called bone rings, are available in the home-decor or crochet section of your craft store.
Its easy to join the rings together—just a couple of stitches does it.

You can usually find bone rings in the home-decor or crochet section of your local craft store. They're inexpensive, unbreakable plastic rings that are usually used for drapery projects or as a basis for crocheted buttons. For this bracelet, I'm using 1-inch and 1/2-inch bone rings.

What you'll need:

  • Cloth measuring tape
  • Plastic bone rings
  • US size 8 steel crochet hook
  • Scissors
  • Pearl cotton embroidery floss or crochet cotton
  • Crewel needle
  • 22-gauge craft wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Needle-nose pliers (optional)


Measure your wrist. Decide on a configuration of rings that's slightly shorter than this measurement.

Begin by measuring your wrist, wrapping the measuring tape snugly. Then, lay out a configuration of rings that's slightly smaller than your wrist measurement. My wrist measures 7 inches, so you can see that my rings are a little shorter.


Begin crocheting by reaching through the ring and pulling a loop back through.

To crochet a ring, begin by anchoring the end of the thread to the ring with your fingers. The end should point in the direction you will be crocheting-so if you're right-handed, the loose end should point left.

Reach the hook through the center of the ring and pull a loop back through.


Yarn over, and pull a loop through the first loop to make a slipstitch.

Yarn over and pull the first loop through the second. That's a slipstitch. Then, reach the hook through the center of the ring again, grab the thread, and pull a loop back through. You'll now have two loops on your hook.


Here's a single crochet, just about to be completed.

I am also the blogger on crochetsoiree.com and would like to place a link on the message board there to send some people over here to get your pattern. I would like your permission to do so. We were going to have a contest for the month of July and have everyone make bracelets, cup covers and dishcloths. I will have some of my friends be judges and I am going to give away 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes (the prizes will be something crocheted by me). Please let me know by email: have_2_crochet@yahoo.com
