Picture of Basic Crochet Yarn and Chain Bracelet Tutorial
Make this easy mixed media crochet bracelet in next to no time using metal chain as the foundation row.  It only requires basic single crochet. Even if you don't know how to crochet, the following steps will show you how to get started. 

This project is  a great yarn stash buster!  You are not limited to yarn, experiment with crochet thread, thin leather cord or even thin wire.  The possibilities are endless.  For several other variations including how to add beads, please check this post on The Beading Gem's Journal.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
This project uses 6x4 mm aluminium curb chain, worsted weight yarn and a 2.55 mm crochet hook.  If you wish to use smaller chain or thinner yarn or even thread, experiment with different size hooks to ensure you can insert the hook into a link to hook up the yarn or thread.

Measure your wrist and cut the chain to the right length after allowing for ease (about 3/4") and the addition of jump rings and a clasp.

You will also need a large hole needle like a tapestry needle for weaving in the ends.

Make a starting slip knot and hook the loop up.  If you are new to crochet, check out the first 3 steps shown here.
