How to Crochet a Bracelet Cuff

Hi there, 
I made this bracelet cuff and love the look so decided to share it. It is not a beginners project. If you haven't done color work before you will be better off trying with a thicker yarn before you try this. But all in all it is fairly easy to do. Have fun. Remember that the numbers on the video correspond to the numbers on this pattern

Sc = single crochet,  Dc = double crochet,  Sp = space,  Tr = treble,  St = stitch, 
Ch = chain,  * * =repeat work in between the stars,  Tog = together,  yo – yarn over, ss = slip stitch

I used embroidery floss in the black and white. I used 2 black and 4 white. The color one I used 2 blue, 2 pink and 2 black.
I used a size 2.75mm crochet hook. To do the ch and the first row I used a 1.80mm hook.
The cuff measures 18in by 7in
1.  Start with a size 1.80mm hook and chain 55 and sc into the 2nd ch from the hook, you should have 54 stitches. Do 1 row plain sc.

2.  Change to size 2.75mm hook and turn your work around
 I will be doing sc throughout the pattern, I will do sc in the very first sc.

Each row in the pattern below is repeated 3 times, to get your 3 flowers in. 

W= white,  B= black.  Example   5w, 4bl, 9w = single crochet 5 in white, single crochet 4 in black and single crochet 9 in white – repeat this 3 times.

3.  5w  4bl  9w – repeat 3x

4.  3w  3bl  2w  5bl  5w

5.  4w  5bl  2w  4bl  3w

6.  2w  11bl   5w

7. 5w  11bl  2w

8.  2w  6bl  3w  4bl  3w

9.  2w  5bl  1w  1bl  1w  5bl  3w

10.  5w  2bl  1w  2bl  1w  4bl  3w

11.  2w  4bl  1w  3bl  1w  3bl  4w

12.  3w  4bl  1w  2bl  1w  4bl  3w

13.  3w  4bl  3w  5bl  3w

14.  2w  10bl  6w

15.  5w  6bl  1w  3bl  3w

16.  Do one row in plain white sc

17.  Start on the side part of your cuff and we are going to ss all the way around. Start with a ch1 and ss into about 15st as that was how many rows we did. Ss all the way around your cuff.

18.  If you need yours to be longer make a few extra rows of sc only on the ends and then do the border all around

19. Ch1,  Sc into each ss around. The corners may need an extra stitch which you can add if you need to keep your corner flat

20.  ch1, 15sc across the end (add to corner if need be). Along the long side you will* Ch3, sc into the 1st ch (picot made), sc into the next st, sc into the next st,* repeat along the long side of cuff and then on the end part just do 15sc and repeat the long side of cuff with the picot’s as above.

Add your clasp on the end and you are done.
