So there's a birthday coming up tomorrow and you have nothing to give - no worries! Give the gift of handmade by you. You can crochet one of these pretty, 3 row beaded bracelets in less than 2 hours using size 12 Anchor Pearl Cotton thread and a size 12 hook. Made entirely with slip stitches, it's simple and quick to work up. Make several in coordinating colors to wear together - green and red for Christmas, black and orange for Halloween, red and white for Valentines Day, etc. The bracelet is about 7.5 inches (19cm) long, and there are instructions on how to make it shorter or longer. It fastens with a 1/2 inch toggle closure.
