Crochet Charm Bracelet: You are my Universe

13 February, 2016

You are my sun moon and stars. Crochet your own mini galaxy charms, to make a beautiful bracelet.

Notes:

1. Unless otherwise indicated, the charms are worked as continuous spirals.  Do not join with a slip stitch.  Do not turn at the end of each round.

2. To keep your place, use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round. Move the marker up each time you start a new round.

3. A substitution for a magic ring can be worked as follows:  Ch 2.  Work the Round 1 instructions into the 2nd ch from the hook.

How to read the sequence rounds:

Some rounds have a sequences. For example, [sc in next st, 2 sc in next st] means repeat that sequence of [sc in next st, 2 sc in next st] followed by [sc in next st, 2 sc in next st] over and over to the end of that particular round.

The number of stitches you should have at the end of each round is inside the parentheses (~).
