A popular crochet stitch—the “V-stitch”—stacks up into a slim column that you then edge with simple stitches in a contrasting color. It’s easy to fine-tune the final size. Make a hairband or belt length with more yarn.

Use small amounts of yarn scraps to crochet this self-buttoning bracelet. The rainbow bracelets shown were made with less than half of one Lotus Snack ball and a sample set of all Lotus colors (available as a kit).

Crochet a button and loop clasp as you go or you can opt to sew a button on later.

Skill Level: Easy/Intermediate. Skill level shifts closer to Easy if you sew on a button instead of crocheting one. UK and Australian equivalents for American measurements, yarn weights, and stitch terms are in brackets.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn these skills:

  • How to crochet a single column of multicolored V-stitches with a contrasting border.

  • How to create a colorful, quick, on-trend bracelet with a mix of simple crochet stitches.

  • How to crochet a button and chain-loop clasp as you go.

  • How to customize the fit, and create a hairband or belt version instead.
