coffee lover

these would be super cute and practical, as well. i mean it doesn't get THAT cold in phoenix, but it would be nice to have one for those of us who are chicken to the chilly weather!!

here are the instructions:

-Some scrap amounts (less then 50 yds) of Summit Hill by Kraemer Yarn Shop, 100% Merino Superwash wool, Worsted weight, Machine Washable (most important factor! you'll hate if you have to wash any of these by hand)
-H (5.00mm) hook
-2 (3/4") buttons
-needle to weave in ends.

CH 33
Row 1 (public side): Linked TR in 2nd, 3rd, and 5th ch from hook, Linked TR in each remaining ch across, CH 1, turn
{ Not sure what Linked TR is? Look at this pic, this pic, this pic, and this pic for help, Basically you insert your hook in to the previous stitch's horizontal bar then yarn over (its like crossing Tunisian crochet with regular crochet) still confused? then check out CrochetMe's winter issue where I have a tutorial on the stitch)
Row 2 (beer side): SC in first 2 TR, Ch 3, sk 3 TR, (button hole made) SC in ea remaining TR, CH 4, turn
Row 3: Linked TR in each SC across to button hole, 3 Linked TR in button hole, Linked TR in last 2 SC, CH 1, turn

Repeat row 2-3 once more, Fasten off, weave in ends.

(optional) With public side facing, join yarn and SL around entire bracelet. I do this just to give it a crisp finished look.
Add buttons as shown here to the opposite side from the button holes aligned with the SC rows.
Slip on and enjoy.
