Water Lily Lace Bracelet Pattern

Someone (not me) might have neglected to remember their sister’s 50th birthday and so I took a couple of days off of my secret project to work on a gift for her. I’m really pleased with the way it turned out, so much so that I’m sad to see it go. Hopefully, she’ll enjoy wearing it as much as I enjoyed making it (there’s a little trepidation because she’s a jewelry artist).

I thought I would go ahead and share the pattern with everyone. Don’t be intimidated by the use of crochet thread instead of yarn. It takes a little getting used to but works up really quickly and simply once you get the hang of it. And, as always, feel free to comment if you have any questions!

Picot

Slip stitch in 1st sc. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

To Finish

Pin leaves and flowers flat and starch rather heavily.

Once dry, sew together – with dark blue sewing thread – using whip stitch & straight stitch, being careful to work through crochet stitches instead of over them, so sewing thread will not show through on finished piece. Attach pearls by threading white sewing thread through the center of pearl and pulling both threads through center hole of flower. Tie a knot and weave ends through crochet stitches of flower, being sure to knot securely to flower.

To create strap for clasp, chain desired length & half double crochet across. (Average women’s wrist size is 7.5 inches)  Instead of weaving in ends, use to attach clasp to strap with knot and then weave ends into strap. Sew straps to the back of bracelet.

I hope you enjoy! If I have left anything unclear, please do let me know and I’ll try to clarify or correct!

  1. This is beautiful! Thank you for the pattern. I’m sure your sister will love it not only for how thoughtful her sister was to make it for her but also for how beautiful it is.

  2. This is so nice! It’s a bit above my skill level yet, but I look forward to trying it out at a later time. Thanks for posting it.

  3. Sorry to leave a second reply – quick question about Rnd 3, in the loop. Am I going inside the loop or along the outside? Also, each has six chains, but the pattern calls for (sc, hdc, 2 dc, tr, picot, tr, 2 dc, hdc, sc) which is nine if you do the dcs in the same stitch. Just a bit confused! Thanks!

  4. I will have to share your blog with my wife who also crochets. She was taught it by my mom. (and thanks for checking out my naturechirp blog on Fairy Rings) Gary
