3 different friendship bracelets in Tunisian Crochet

Die deutschsprachige Anleitung findest Du hier

Inspiration is everywhere and sometimes it even hits you in the subway or  at other crazy locations – but to be honest, the idea to crochet friendship bracelets evolved during a  Pinterest -session.  No worries – no copycat here! I promise: I haven’t seen tunisian crocheted friendship bracelets elsewhere from here yet.

Which is surprising, because I don’t know a needlework except the classic knotting (do you say so?) that makes it so incredibly easy to create beautiful colourplays. And as it is so easy, no wonder that this tutorial here is totally beginner friendly. The only thing you need to know is how to make a chain, no kidding! And it gets even better: you don’t even need to buy any yarn, because you’ll need no more than some yarn leftovers in different colors. My daughter just grabbed the first prototypes of the tunisian crochet friendship bracelets for herself and her bff, and I did save one or two for myself as well.

So now you really don’t have an excuse anymore – go and try tunisian crochet, learn the very basics with this friendship bracelet tutorial!

You’ll learn:

  • how to work the tunisian crochet foundation row
  • how to work the tunisian crochet return pass
  • how to change colours in tunisian crochet!

I even made a video tutorial, but I have to admit: this time  I did it in german. And I am not sure I’ll make it to write down the translation for subtitles. I honestly don’t know yet. But maybe it is still helpful to watch it, and below you find a detailed picture tutorial for the written pattern.

Materials

1  Instructions for monochrome bracelets

01 Chain a number of sts that fit round your wrist (I chained about 30).

02 Insert your hook in the back bump of the 2nd chain (ch) from hook and pull up loop, repeat for every other ch. You now should have the same number of loops on your hook as crocheted chs.

03 Ch 1, * yo, pull through next 2 loops on hook*, repeat from * end (one loop left on hook). You just worked the tunisian crochet return pass.

04 Now you’ll just need to a finishing row, which is basically a row of slip stitches: With 1 loop on hook, insert hook from right to left under the front vertical bar and pull up loop through both loops on hook (= one loop on hook). This is the tunisian crochet slip stitch. Repeat this step until the last stitch. For this last stitch, insert hook from front to back under both front and back vertical bar and pull up loop. Chain 1 and cut off yarn.

2 Instructions for two-color tunisian crochet friendship bracelets

01 With Color A, chain a number of sts that fits around your wrist ( I worked again 30 sts), for the last ch, change to B and cut of color A.

02 With B, insert your hook in the back bump of the 2nd chain (ch) from hook and pull up loop, repeat for every other ch. You now should have the same number of loops on your hook as crocheted chs.

03 Ch 1, * yo, pull through next 2 loops on hook*, repeat from * until you have 2 loops left on hook. With A, make a slipknot and pull it through both loops on your hook ( = Color change at the end of the return pass)

04 Now you’ll just need to a finishing row, which is basically a row of slip stitches: With 1 loop on hook, insert hook from right to left under the front vertical bar and pull up loop through both loops on hook (= one loop on hook).

3 Instructions for more 2-color friendship bracelets

01 With Color A, chain a number of sts that fits around your wrist ( I worked again 30 sts), for the last ch.

02 With B, insert your hook in the back bump of the 2nd chain (ch) from hook and pull up loop, repeat for every other ch. You now should have the same number of loops on your hook as crocheted chs.

03  Make a slipknot with B and put it aside. Make an additional yarn over with color A from front to back, secure the yarn on the back of the hook with the forefinger of your right hand (if you are right handed). The last two loops on your hook now form a kind of „V“.

04 Now grab B , change the hand that secures the yarn over on the back (do not let go!) and pull the slipknot of B through the „V“ you formed before. Do not let go of the yarn on the back yet, yarn over and pull through the next 2 loops on the hook before you can stop securing the yarn on the back. ( Colour change at the end of the forward pass).

05 *Yo, pull through next 2 loops on hook*, repeat from * until 2 loops left on hook. Change colour again, work finishing row:

06 With 1 loop on hook, insert hook from right to left under the front vertical bar and pull up loop through both loops on hook (= one loop on hook). This is the tunisian crochet slip stitch. Repeat this step until the last stitch. For this last stitch, insert hook from front to back under both front and back vertical bar and pull up loop. Chain 1 and cut off yarn.
