Free Crochet Pattern - Party Favor-Plarn Pop Tab Bracelet

This design was created from a request I received for an easy-to-crochet pop tab bracelet pattern.  The requestor is throwing her tween daughter a birthday party and wanted to give as gifts each of girl a pop tab bracelet.  But, she was on a limited budget.   The pattern needed to be easy and quick to make. 

After practicing various stitches and techniques, realized I was trying too hard. Finally this is what I came up with ...  in less than 15 minutes you have a cute-fun pop tab bracelet.   

While I was having fun, decided to see what it would look like made with other types of recycled yarn - e.g. hosiery yarn, t-shirt yarn and sheets yarn. It looks fabulous ..  sorry I don't have pics. I will have to make up more and post the pics.     

So if you're looking for party favor gift idea, here it is.   



Place 2 pull tabs with right sides together - matching same size holes - wrong side facing you, join plarn with a slip stitch, chain 1, single crochet in same hole. 2 single crochet stitches in next hole, chain 1, turn.

*Open the pull tabs to flatten, place another pull tab with right sides together - matching same size holes - wrong side facing you, 2 single crochet stitches in same hole, 2 single crochet stitches in next hole.

*Repeat same steps, keep adding pop tabs until you have the desired length.  

To finish - match right sides together of first and last pop tabs,  2 single crochet stitches in same hole, 2 single crochet stitches in next hole.  Fasten off and weave in ends.

That's it.   Please share your bracelet pics.
