Crochet bracelet pattern

Hey everyone!  I had so many lovely comments on the card and bracelet set.  Thank you all so much.  I also had several requests for the pattern, It is super basic so give it try. (That means you "N")

Flower Bracelet

Supplies I used:
Crochet hook 2.25
Egyptian cotton crochet thread
Tapestry needle

Stitches I used:
Ch - Chain
Slip Stich
Sc - single crochet
dbl - double crochet

Individual flower (make 4):
Chain 6 and  slip stitch to the 1st chain.

Round 1: *Chain 2, then 2 dbl inside the ring, chain 3and slip stitch inside the ring* repeat from * to * 5 times.  You will have six petals.

Round 2: Slip stitch on each of the first three stitches of the first petal. (this will move your thread to the top of the first petal)  Now do 1 sc in the next stitch.  Chain 5.  *Do 1 sc in the top stitch of the next petal and chain 5*  repeat from the * to*  all the way around the flower and slip stitch to the first sc.

Round 3:  *Crochet 6 single crochet on the chain line.  Slip stitch on the top of the petal.*  Repeat from * to * until the end and then slip stitch to the beginning.  Tie off  leaving a long trail of thread to sew the flowers together.

Fourth Flower Only - Round 4: Slip stitch on each stitch until you reach a valley between the two of the scallops.  Chain as many as you need to accommodate the size of the button you have chosen for your bracelet.  Join with a slip stitch.  I secured a few stitches on each side to the scallop using a tapestry needle and trail of thread left at the end,  just to make it more sturdy.

Completing the project: Using the tapestry needle and trail ends of thread, sew the flowers together. You can do it any way you like. I chose to connect the flowers at the top of two scallops.

It looks like the original is fastened a little different.  You can see a photo of it here.
After the flowers are all together add you button and enjoy!

Let me know if you have any questions.  I am soooo not a professional at pattern writing. If you make this, please send me a photo.  I would love to see it and post it here.

Looking for more crochet patterns?  I love the patterns at Attic 24.  Her happy flower is definately on my to do list.

Hope the rest of your week is wonderful!
