This pattern is quite intricate and not for the beginning crocheter! I include numerous photos throughout, but still do not recommend this for novices. The photos will however, help the experienced crocheter more easily see stitch placement.

Please note, the β€˜Cara’s Shamrock’ pattern is part of this design, so one would not need to buy both patterns…
BUT if you previously bought the Shamrock and now want to try the bracelet- make sure you are using the same Ravelry account you used for the Shamrock, and enter code SHAMROCK for $2 off this bracelet pattern.

SIZE NOTES- My bracelet measures about 7 inches around. Crochet does have a bit of natural stretch, but if your wrist is much larger I recommend using a 1.75 mm hook rather than the 1.50 mm.

STITCH NOTES- This pattern uses some advanced crochet techniques, including top-stitch, or surface crochet, and FoundationSingleCrochet (fsc). www.CrochetSpot.com is a great resource and here are links to their tutorials on these stitches-

2 sets of jewelry toggle hardware or 2 buttons and laundry spray starch will also be needed to complete this bracelet.
