Found a pattern for a choker, but I made a bracelet instead. It's quick and easy to make once you get the hang of it. I made this in under 30 minutes, while watching the tube.
- 8-ply yarn
- 5-mm hook
- tapestry needle
Stitches used (US terms):
- chain (ch)
- puff stitch (ps or puff st)
- single crochet (sc)
It took me a couple of tries before finally getting it the line of puff stitches right. I didn't notice any turn in the pattern while I was doing the bracelet, but when I included a turn after each puff stitch, I finally got it right.
Note: Before writing this post, I watched the video to verify whether or not a turn was indicated. Turns out, there was a "turn" in the written pattern, but she used "sp", where sp means "spin".
I changed how I worked on the border: instead of working 4 sc on each chain after the puff stitch (remember, you make a puff stitch and then you chain 2), I worked 2 sc on the side of the puff stitches plus 1 sc after every pair of puff stitch.
