It's a wrap

Here's a quick-to-create crochet wrap bracelet.
I made it using some of the DK yarn I had left over from my Sunday Shawl.
Using a 3.5mm hook, I chained 212 and then sc (UK dc) into the 12th chain from the hook. This created a button hole. You can alter the size of the hole to fit your chosen button.
I went on to sc (UK dc) across and fastened off. I sewed a wooden button to this end.

Using jump rings, I attached some random charms through the button hole.
The bracelet wraps easily around the wrist and was a hit with my model (my niece). She has now claimed it for herself.

Sunday Girl

It seems the Sunday Shawl pattern by The Little Bee has taken the crochet world by storm. Just a quick Google proves that! 

I couldn't wait to get my hands on the pattern and give it a go.
I ordered the recommended yarn from The Wool Warehouse and once received, I immediately set to work.

In no time at all I was half way through. I went on to complete it by doing an hour here and an hour there - the pattern lends itself to this perfectly.
I used the suggested colours, but I am sure it would look just as good using different ones.
It's a great shawl for those cooler Spring and Summer nights and goes great with my cowboy boots and jeans.
There's just one problem with the Sunday Shawl ... I miss making it ... so I think it will be the first of many!
