Introduction: Infinite Circles Crochet Bracelet

About: Industrial Design student at Eindhoven University of Technology

This bracelet consists of three circles that have been crochet together. I used the same principle as used for mobius weaving, but normally seven rings are joined this way by weaving it in each other once. For this bracelet, I wove the circles together three times. It's quite a simple project, but there's a lot of variation possible in it's simplicity. As you will see halfway through the 'ible, it's also possible to stop after two colours, but adding more colors is possible as well. You can also vary with the number of times you weave the circles together. I'm really happy with how it turned out, I hope you'll like it as well!

Step 1: Materials

To make a bracelet like this, you will need:

- yarn, I used 3 mm
- a crochet needle
- scissors

Step 2: The First Circle

Start by making a chain that can fit around your hand easily. Join the two ends to make a circle. Next, fill the circle with double crochets (US) / trebles (UK). When you're done, cut off the remaining yarn. To make the height difference you can see in the end almost unnoticeable, take the end of your yarn and pull it through the first loop on the other side as shown. Work away the remaining yarn and your first circle is finished.

Step 3: The Second Circle

Start by making a chain with the same amount of chain stitches as your first circle. Next, weave it in the first circle as shown. The most important thing to check is if there are twists in the chain. If there are twists at the moment you join the circle, the end result won't look as neat. You can easily check this by checking if the same side of the chain is always facing outwards. If you are sure this is right, you can join the two ends.

Once the ends are joined, you can crochet the circle, just like you did with the first circle.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

As you can see in the first picture, it's looking a bit like a tangled mess right now. Straighten out the crocheted strands and make them fit together as shown.

If you like the result of two colours, you could also decide to stop here.

Step 5: The Third Circle

The third circle is added exactly the same way as the second one. The only difference is that the tangled mess is even more tangled ; )

Step 6: Done!

And that's it! I hope you liked it, if you did I would love to know!

Hi there. I was wondering what kind of yarn you use cotton or acrylic? It looks very nice.

Haven't tried that yet, but it should work, maybe you should give it a shot!

Congratulations on being a finalist Emily!!

Have you received an email about it yet? I haven't, but the results are already there :-/

Thanks Linda! And to you as well!

No, I haven't..

What do you think of the results Emily? I'm sorry you won just runner up too :(

I'm not sure, far from what I expected. For mine I had thought first prize or runner up, so that's quite expected, but I really would have thought yours would end up higher, if not highest.

Thank you Emily! I too thought that yours would have won more than runner up. I'm very surprised about all this and considering the work behind the ibles, the results are wrong to me.

Congratulations on being a finalist, very well deserved!

Awesome Emily! :D
