Bling Bam Bangle
Bling Bam Bangle began as a test of ribbing stitches for a simple crochet bangle. At the time (September 2012), I was preparing to teach a crochet jewelry class at a conference in Reno, Nevada.
The design started with my goal to make a comfortable crochet bracelet that doesn’t require a clasp. A stretchy ribbed one would slide on and off the wrist for a soft crochet bangle. Once I tried a sequined strand held together with different colors of my Lotus yarn, I couldn’t stop! I made a dozen, and tried seven different kinds of ribbed stitches.
This pattern offers the four stretchier versions, in keeping with the original goal of a simple, stretchy ribbed “bangle." The quirky Bam-Bam clasp is just for bang (impact). It’s crocheted last, and you can leave it off altogether.
