Crochet Project - Easy 'Frienship' Bracelets

This summer I wanted to go crazy and make tons of Friendship type bracelets and wear them in large quantities because they look good when you wear more than one together. I went out and bought all this 6 strand floss and embroidery thread. I started to make some bracelets by the traditional braiding way and boy did it take forever! I do not have the patients for multiple day projects that aren't blankets or something bigger than a BRACELET! So I had all this left over thread. I decided to crochet some and 1 bracelet takes less than 5 minutes to complete!

You'll Need:

Different color 6 strand floss or embroidery thread
Crochet Hook (I suggest size E to G...I used F)

1. Cut 4 strands about 18 inches each. (You can trim off the extra at the end)

2. Now using all 4 strings together, do a slip knot

3.Start single crocheting. Keep doing so and size it around your wrist while doing so until you get the size you desire. 

4. On your last single crochet pull the thread all the way through to make the ending knot

EASY! And you're done! Tie them around your wrist just like you would do a Friendship bracelet.
