Crocheted Rosary Bracelet


The beads of this dainty rosary bracelet are made of 3-dc clusters anchored on a loose chain. Since rosaries are must-haves for Catholics (like me), they're excellent gifts for the devout ones. But this bracelet is so pretty even non-Catholics will love it! (At a college reunion, I brought a bunch of them and gave it to my college classmates. The non-Catholics took them even after they realized it was a rosary bracelet. It's that adorable.)

My rosary bracelet is made of transparent plarn crocheted with sewing thread for color. However, the WIP(work-in-progress) pictures are done in crochet cotton since its difficult to photograph transparent plarn. I hope you like it!

@anonymous: Hi Lori! I wish I could approximate, but I didn't really finished the cotton yarn bracelet. It was too thick, it ended up too long for a bracelet. Maybe you should try something thinner.

I wish I could recommend a more suitable yarn to you. But I am only limited to crochet cotton and acrylic yarn because that's the only thing available in our country.

Good luck.

Thank you for this wonderfully demonstrated free pattern! I'd like to know (if possible) approximately how much cotton yarn you used when you made the model. I would like to make a crocheted rosary bracelet for some young children and I think cotton yarn would be safer than plastic. Thank you again!

@happynutritionist: Yes, I am a full-blooded proud Filipino! I'm glad you liked what I shared about my land and I hope this could bring you closer to your sister-in-law. I'm sure she has a lot of rosaries if she is Catholic. ^^,

@NoYouAreNot: You bet it is! I love that place so much I wish I could raise my daughter there. It's also a nice place to visit for it is complete with everything you'd look for in a tropical island: white sand beach, black sand beach, cool spring, hot spring, mountains, rivers, diving spots just to name a few.

I am just realizing from your sharing here that you are Filipino, is that right? My sister in law is also, and now I've learned a bit more about her land. I like how you weaved your talent for crocheting with plarn into a travel lens, nicely done:-)

Original angle to a travel lens, and a couple of interesting insights into Filippino culture. Camiguin island seems such a nice place to grow up!
