OMGOSH!! My deepest apologies yarnies, crafters, friends and hookers. I know technically it is not Thursday anymore and I feel horrible that I am so late in posting. I do hope you will all forgive me. And I think you are going to really like what this weeks project is. So without further ado........ 


I found this really neat pattern a couple of years ago for Crochet Cabled Bracelets but I never got around to trying it out. Well I decided now's as good a time as any. I'm sad to say however that I cannot find the original place from which this pattern came. I will gladly share it with you all if you'd like. There are also a couple bracelets in here of my own design. Well lets see some pictures. Enjoy!

Here's the whole shebang!

Cabled Bracelet close up.

Tried out some braided looks.

I was brave and went with the button
hole/button look. Love it.
 These ones are my own designs. I just messed around with single crochet and button holes etc.

These ones are metal bracelets that I crocheted over. 

               So I decided to try some key chains and lanyards while I was at it. I think they are pretty great.  What do you think? Remember these items are not just for girls. Guys love these cabled bracelets too and what dad doesn't need a new key chain or lanyard. ;) 

All of the projects made this week were made using Lily's Sugar n' Cream Cotton Yarn. I just love their variegated looks. This project was super fun and easy and I'm so happy to share it with you all. 

Please don't forget to click on the 'we're on the fence' button (top left) to vote for my blog. Also check out the cool Stash-buster Link Party button on the right. Lots of great things being made out there so go check em out.

So that's it folks...that's this weeks installment of the Project of the Week (better late than never right). I hope you like what you saw. Please tell me your thoughts in the comments section below. I love hearing from you all and I will reply. I've got a big weekend long festival coming up in a few weeks and I'd love to hear some great project ideas from you all. I'm looking for summer themed projects that are not too time consuming (meaning I can get a few done in a week at least) and that are use-able to most everyone. I realize cotton is a big factor in these projects and I have lots of it. I cant wait to hear your suggestions. Until next time......

Happy Hooking! 


  1. I love all your bracelets. So pretty and colorful. The cabled one is really neat looking with the texture.
    Hmm, summer themed projects. Beach cover ups? Otter pop holders? Mesh tote bags for farmer's markets? Whatever you find I know it will be great.
    Take care :-)

  2. Lovely bracelets Katie, I love the button one's. Idea's bag charms like little owls or my sweet lacy flower hearts, pop it in you handbag string tote on my blog too, flower clips, crochet scrunchie's that should keep you busy for a while. :)
