Valor Bracelets


  • Trendy self-buttoning bracelet.
  • Use yarn scraps or get the a kit.
  • Easy to lengthen for a headband or belt.

More details below.


Use small amounts of yarn scraps to crochet this self-buttoning bracelet. I used two color sample sets and less than half of one Lotus Snack ball (available as a kit).

A popular crochet stitch, the “V-stitch”, makes a slim column that you then edge with simple stitches in a contrasting color. It’s easy to fine-tune the size of the bracelet; you could easily make a head band or belt length with more yarn. 

Crochet a button and loop clasp as you go, or sew on a button on later. 

Skill Level

Easy/Intermediate. Skill level shifts closer to Easy if you sew on a button instead of crocheting one. Metal free (no experience with jewelry findings needed). UK and Australian equivalents for American measurements, yarn weights, and stitch terms are in brackets.
