(1) 1/2″ – 1″ button
3” scrap of yarn, or a stitch marker
Choose your yarn(s). Try making a chain that is about 6” long with the hook you think might be the right size. If your chain is too loose, switch to a smaller hook, if your chain is too tight, switch to a larger hook. Once you have found the hook that makes a chain you like, then get started!

Chain Wrap Bracelet Pattern
Chain: Make chains until your piece wraps around your wrist twice (or as many times as you want your bracelet to wrap).
Place a marker: If you have a marker, attach it now. If you do not, grab a scrap of yarn. Place the yarn against the hook and make a chain, catching the yarn as make the chain. This will mark the start of your button loop.
Button Loop: Chain until the part of your chain after the marker can make a loop the correct size for your button to go through. Start with about 6 chains for a worsted weight yarn and check the size. You can take chains out or add more to get the correct size loop. Once you have the right size, sl st into the marked stitch, remove marker. This will make the button loop.
Chain: Keep on making your chain. Make the chain so that it is the same length as the chain that leads up to the button hole. Once it is the same length, chain one more, clip the yarn, and pull the cut end through the last chain. Give the cut end a tug to tighten up the end.
Second Color: With the second color, chain until you have a piece that is the same length as the other 2 lengths of chain leading up to the button loop. Sl st into the bottom of the button loop, in between the 2 lengths of chain. Chain again until the last length of chain is as long as the rest, chain one more, clip the yarn, and pull the cut end through the last chain. Give the cut end a tug to tighten up the end. You will now have 4 chains, all the same length, hanging off the button loop.
Button: Thread your needle and sew the 4 chains together at the opposite end from the button loop, just where the chains all start/end. Fold the tails over and stitch them together, then clip them. Place the button over the cut ends and sew it on.
