Hi everyone, here is a free crochet pattern to make a chunky strap cuff bracelet.

I designed this pattern because I wanted to be able to make something with the leftover bits of chunky yarn in my yarn stash. They could be made in pairs and worn as wrist warmers which are great if you are sitting at a desk typing and you want to keep your wrists snuggly.

Below you will find a list of equipment you will need, the pattern and instructions for assembling your cuff bracelet. This pattern uses UK crochet terminology.

Measurements – These are attended as a guide only.

Cuff – Length: 19 cm – Width: 9 cm
Strap – Length: 17 cm – Width: 5 cm
Adjustments:
This cuff bracelet could be made smaller by reducing the number of
rows in the cuff bracelet, if you do reduce the number of rows in the
cuff bracelet, reduce the number of rows in the strap fastener also.

Assemble:

Using a tapestry needle sew the strap fastener to the cuff bracelet, sew
a button in the centre of the cuff bracelet ensuring the button and
buttonhole are aligned correctly.
