How to Make a Crocheted Ring Braceletcomments (13) October 10th, 2008
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
- Pearl cotton embroidery floss or crochet cotton
- Crewel needle
- 22-gauge craft wire
- Wire cutters
- Needle-nose pliers (optional)

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.
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 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.
