Support/Awareness Bracelet Free Crochet Pattern

Support/Awareness Bracelet Crochet Pattern

Awareness support bracelet stack

I use a size F (3.75MM) hook and either Red Heart yarn or Caron Simply Soft yarn. I try to work tightly on these bracelets so the color is more smooth and the bracelet is more firm.

Remember to check out all the different colors/causes somewhere, like here, and get an idea of how many important things there are to spread awareness about and choose ones that are important to you! Or you can always just make the bracelets to match your current style!

Simplified Version:

Rnd 1: Ch 33, jn with a sl st in first ch. Ch 1, sc in same ch and around. Jn with sl st in first sc.

(Note: If you chain loosely then the chain at the center of the bracelet will have larger decorative circles. You might need less chains for your bracelet if you do this.If you chain more tightly then the bracelet will have a more solid appearance. Both look nice to me! See picture below for comparison.)

Rnd 2: Turn in-side-out, ch 2, jn with a sl st in original ch, ch 1. Turn right-side-out. Sc in same ch and around in the original ch. Jn with a sl st in first sc. Fasten off, weave in ends.

Instructions with more detail in case above is unclear:

Rnd 1: Make a chain just long enough to stretch and slide over the widest part of your hand once it is joined in the first ch with a sl st. (I chain 33.) Be careful not to twist the chain so it will be easier for you to find the chain spaces evenly. Ch 1, sc in same ch and around. Jn with a sl st in the first sc.

Rnd 2: Ch 2. Turn the bracelet in-side-out and jn with a sl st in the original chain. (This is just so that you don’t have to fasten off and rejoin on the opposite side of the bracelet and have more ends to weave in.) Now ch 1 and turn the bracelet right-side-out again so that you’re looking at the right side of your bracelet while single crocheting around just like you were on the first rnd, only you’ll be working along in the chain again in the opposite direction. Sc in the same ch as you joined with the sl st, sc in the next st and around. Jn with a sl st in the first sc. Fasten off and weave in ends. (I use a yarn needle to weave in the ends and make sure I do this on the inside of the bracelet…which should be the same side that the ch-2 is visible from when you changed sides for the second round.

I’ve decided to share this pattern for free, so if you share it with a friend I’d like for you to mention me and/or link it back to where they can find my site! Let me know whatcha think! Thanks!    ~Starling

    I’ve been looking for an easy pattern for bracelets that I could donate to the Arnold Chiari Malformation Support Group, for the annual walk to benefit Wishes and Rainbows.
    Wishes and Rainbows is a charity group which helps to offset the costs of the very necessary brain surgery for children with severe Chiaris… As an adult who’s had the surgery for this debilitating condition, I know the real fear of it and then, once in recovery, the panic from the high medical bills which go hand in hand with this surgery.
    The Top surgical facility for this surgery is The Chiari Institute in upstate N.Y., which until the ladt few years did not accept any insurance at all.

    Thank you so much for making this pattern free.

    I’m gonna make as many as my numb, tingly, weak hands will let me.

    I will also attach a tag to each bracelet, giving you props for the free pattern, with your site address and a note thanking yoy for this free pattern.

    Our color is Purple…a color which has always been a favorite of mine, go figure…

    If life doesn’t go haywire, I’ll do my best to get back to you to tell you how they turned out and how they sold at the walk.
    Wish me luck that I can get them done for This year’s walk 😉
