rings of autumn bracelet



,

Rings of autumn. Think of the deep colors that brings to mind.

.

.

Scrounging through my DMC Pearl size 8, I found those shades of autumn. And seeing so many of these crochet bracelets that use just simple plastic rings, I knew this was my next project.

.


The DMC pearl thread is so glossy & silky that it adds a rich sheen to the bracelet.

.




And what an 'ah-ha' moment for me when I realized that the colors are crocheted only half of the ring and then joined to the next ring before crocheting the next color on.


..

.
And oh! the possibilities when thinking of all of the color combinations for making these simply elegant bracelets that just slip on right over the wrist.




Edit: Directions for this type of bracelet can be found here: craftstylish, & lula louise. I actually took the idea from here but instead of crocheting an actual circle, I used her same idea to crochet around the plastic rings.
