The Wanderer Bracelet Journey | Part 1 | Crocodile Scales

I have had freestyle crochet bracelets for sale in Knot What It Seams Etsy shop for about a year now and I have decided to sell the tutorial pattern so the D.I.Y. people of the world can create their own Wanderer Bracelet.

I am also going to be posting step by step installments of the pattern here on the blog, just for you guys. Shh!

Each post will explain how to crochet a new stitch and how to apply it to free-form crochet. I encourage you to try my method and put your own spin on it, be creative, and let your inspiration influence your design. Have fun.

Terms
ch – chain
dc – double crochet
st – stitch
picot – chain 3, sc stitch in first chain.
post – crochet sideways along previous row’s dc.

Materials
– 1.25mm hook
– 6 different colours of 2ply crochet thread ( I use Pearl 8 Anchor thread )

Crocodile Scales | Bracelet Foundation

1.) Chain a length to go almost around the wrist in multiples of 3 + 1. The example I use is 58 ch sts. Turn.
