Today is my turn to share my pinterest piece! I’ve been seeing this queen anne’s lace pattern on all sorts of pieces lately, scarfs mostly, some bookmarks as well as a headband. Then I saw this silver bracelet and fell in love!

It took a half dozen tries to figure out a pattern and size that would work. It was worth it! I’ve made it in 4 colors so far, and wear one of them all the time! I love them! Black, cream, red and now this brown one.

Here is the silver cuff mine is based off of. Of course since mine isn’t metal it’s not a cuff, it’s a full circle! The pattern itself is pretty quick and easy, the last few rows, connecting the ends creating the circle is the tricky part, but I feel great about how I do it. I hope it’s easy for you to follow!

      Probably??? I’ve used stiffy for a few other thread crochet projects, but I’m not the biggest fan of cuffs anyway so I didn’t bother trying. I’m sure you could though!

    • terry says

      bonsoir,
      j’aurais avant tout voulut lui faire mes compliments pour le bracelet en dentelle ,il est super …mais est ce qu’il existe un video ….je prefere la pratique à la théorie…merci beaucoup

  1. says

    Hi I’ve made similar bracelets and have used Fabric Stiffener to turn them into cuffs. Works great just water down a little saturate your piece then wrap around soda can or water bottle etc and let dry :)

    Love this bracelet will be making a few myself :)

    • says

      I’ve used stiffy before on thread crochet stuff and liked it, but I’m not the biggest fan of cuffs, and like it soft and comfortable anyway so that’s why I didn’t bother going that way. But if you do let me know!

    • says

      Thanks Holly! I love your bracelets as well! I’ve never tried printable shrinky dink material, I’m going to have to get some to play with.

  2. says

    This is great! I saw that bracelet on pinterest and loved it! I bet you could make it stiff with starch or something too. Thanks for this pattern.

    • says

      Thanks! I’ve been doing it for quite awhile, but I like working with thread more than yarn most of the time, i love the small detailed work! I agree, the brown and tan are my favorites, but the black and red get worn more with my wardrobe!

  3. elenor says

    thank you so much for figuring out the pattern and sharing it with us! I already knew the picture from etsy and i really loved it. now i can try to make one myself! your pictures were also very helpful, thanks! the tip with wrapping it around a waterbottle is also very clever! i found your pin on pinterest!

    greetings!
    elenor

    • says

      Thanks so much! I’m not into stiff jewelry, that why my version goes all the way around, but the water bottle trick is great if you want to create a cuff like the picture!

  4. Steff says

    I have a question about this pattern. I just decided to try it out and i just started but i don’t understand something in the instructions. At the beginning after you make the ring of ch8, the next instruction says “working in the ring” do you mean working inside the big lumen of the ring or in the stitches that make up the ring?

    • says

      inside the big lumen of the ring. Not in the stitches. There will be lots of room left over, but as you work the rest of the pattern you’ll see that it matches up just fine! Have fun and good luck!

    • says

      It’s definitely one of those patterns that doesn’t make a lot of sense until you try it, at least for me… I played with a bit before attempting my first bracelet. the really tricky part is connecting the ends! Let me know if you have any other questions! Have fun!

  5. Steff says

    I just finished the bracelet ^_^ it came out perfect! i did it in a dark red/ burgundy and yes connecting those last ends were a bit tricky but once i took my time and read carefully, lol it’s was simple enough. It was my first time using this small thread since i’m a beginner using the large yarn but i’m very very happy with the results :) thank you for the pattern and the help!

    • says

      I’m so glad it worked out for you! I’m SO glad that you were able to work out the connecting parts! I always get nervous with writing patterns! I know what I MEAN, but am always nervous it won’t make sense to anyone else!

  6. Verna says

    I pinned the cuff to see if I could copy it, now I don’t have to. Thanks. I will be making a few of these.

  7. says

    Thank you so much for sharing the pattern. I am going to make this, and post a picture here when I am done.
    It is really pretty. I crochet earrings with thread, and have ventured into making bracelets. But, if I do make this, it will only be for my family.

  8. Cherrie says

    I am having trouble with this bracelet. I get to row three and then I get lost. Are the *’s saying repeat? And do you crochet ten in the same spot? Could please give me a little more detail. I really love this bracelet! Thank you so much..

    • says

      kay, lets see if I can help! this is kind of tricky, but with a little patience you’ll totally get it…

      I use the 1sc, ch2 instead of ch3, I feel it’s sturdier, so I use the ** around it to kind of visually hold it together as a stitch.

      Then the second set of ** is repeating! I guess I should choose something else to hold the first section together…

      does that at ALL make any sense? in any way?

    • says

      crap I forgot to answer your second question

      the “*ch2, 1dc in same space, 1dc in next space* ten times” notice it says next space… it’s constantly moving over a stitch during the repeat!

  9. says

    Hi! I’m amazed at how you can make things from scratch, so to speak. I couldn’t find a nice pattern for Queen Anne’s lace anywhere else. This is a beautiful bracelet. I made one myself and a necklace too from your pattern. I also tried to create a diagram or chart and posted it to my blog here: http://oneplustwowhattodo.blogspot.com/2012/09/queen-annes-lace-bracelet-and-necklace.html
    I hope you don’t mind!
    I guess i used a thicker thread than the your pattern suggests because I only had to make 6 shells instead of 8 before finishing the bracelet. Or maybe my wrists are so thin (yeah, right, with all the pregnancy swelling going on!).

    • says

      You did a great job! I’m glad you found my pattern and blog. And your necklace looks great! I’m glad you took the time to create a diagram, I’ve been meaning to, but just haven’t taken the time, I don’t mind at all! I use the crochet thread in the crochet isle, I think it’s weight 10?

  10. Julia says

    Two questions:
    -Would this be considered a very advanced pattern? I’m really, REALLY new to crocheting but I’d like to try this.
    -Is there a video tutorial for this somewhere?

  11. Steph says

    Hi Ashlee, the bracelet is gorgeous, may I know the material of the thread?
    Pure wool or something else? ‘Cause the silver one seems can “stand up” by itself.
    I wonder if I use cotton lace thread, will it be too soft?
    Thank you in advance.

    • says

      I used cotton thread, the silver bracelet I BASED it on is SILVER, that’s why its standing on it’s own. It’s silver, the metal… The ones I made are cotton and totally flexible.

  12. Julia says

    I’m having trouble with row three as well. I can’t get the loopy edges to form. I’m getting a straight edge with a V pattern inside. When it says ‘next space’, do I count the chain spaces, or only the tr spaces?
    Thanks!

  13. Julia says

    Ohhhhh. Silly me! Thanks for the clarification! Haha this pattern was what inspired me to pick up crochet in the first place; now I’ve finally worked my way up to be able to crochet this!

  14. Erika says

    Hi im sorry to bother you. this is a very pretty pattern and i love it so im trying to do it myself but im stuck in row 8. I did connect the third fan to the second fan’s picot in row 7 but now that i have completed all of the trebels in row 8 im on the opposite side of where i connected to the picot in row 7 so i dont know how im supposed to connect it once again. help please and thank you.

    • says

      that’s how rows work, then end on every other side ;) connect row 8 to the first shell, skip next picot (from row 6) and 1 dc into next ch2 picot space

  15. Stephanie says

    I had a blast trying this one out! I’m new to using crochet thread and it took me a long time to get the tension right so my stitches weren’t too loose! I ended up using size 10 thread with a 1.6mm needle, so my cuff was definitely too big!! I think that I would either need to cut out some of the fans or adjust the stitches to make it a little smaller. Of course, I belatedly realized that in the picot rows, I was adding extra ch 2s (so it went dc, ch2, dc, ch2, etc..) which actually gives it a little more of a ruffled look!

    This was an absolutely beautiful pattern, even though it didn’t quite work out for me on my first try! I may go pick up a smaller needle and try again!

    Thank you!

  16. shalini says

    hi Ashlee,
    that is a lovely pattern. i do have a doubt..row 8 the last DC is into the picot from row 3 is it ? i found if i had to crochet into picot from 6 the project folds over…
    thank you so much for posting this

  17. Lorna says

    Such a lovely pattern…i just finished mine and absolutely love it! Thanks so much, look forward to seeing more of your art :-)

  18. Linda McTavish says

    Love Love Love this pattern. Have just finished my first one in a silver thread and it is beautiful. I live in the UK and as our crotchet terms are different had to change every stitch! Was not put off by this and glad I persevered. Thank you so much for your pattern. Linda from Scotland.

  19. Emily Youngker says

    Oh please help! I’m on shell 9 and I cannot understand how to connect it to the first shell. It says ” dc in sc of row 3 from first shell”. What sc?? If the picture is supposed to help, it’s not helping me!
    Totally love this and would love to finish it!
    Thanks!

    • says

      connecting them is by far the trickiest part of the whole thing. try picturing it like your adding another shell again, picture the connection points of the other shells, that is where you’ll be connecting to the first 2 shells. Sorry I can’t be more help without seeing it. I tried my best to show it in pictures.

  20. says

    I’m a little confused on row 3. I saw a previous question about this row, but it didn’t quite answer my question. When you move over a stitch, does that include the ch1 between the tr stitches of the previous row? Or do we skip the ch1 and just go to the top of the next tr stitch?
