If you’re after a quick stash-busting project, then you’re in the right place. These 3 fab friendship bracelet patterns by Lucy Croft only need a small amount of 4ply yarn to make them, so it’s a great way to use up those leftover bits of fancy yarn you couldn’t bare to throw away! You can also embellish them with beads to make them extra special, or you could even use some special stitch markers on them to give them that extra bit of bling! All 3 of the designs start and end with extra chains so that you can tie the bracelets around your wrist once complete.
You will need
Small amount of cotton 4ply yarn
A 3mm (US C/2 or D/3 hook)
Small beads or beaded stitch markers
