Stitch Guide
Ch(s) - chain(s), sc - single crochet, dc - double crochet, RS - right side, st(s)– stitch(s), Yo – Yarn over

Notes
The ch-1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch
Use any kind of buttons, just make sure they are not too heavy, heavy buttons will stretch the bracelet
The cuff bracelet can be made longer by adding stitches, remember to always have an odd number of stitches ie. 31, 33, 35 and the cuff bracelet can be made wider by adding rows (repeat rows 4-6)

Rows 2-3:  Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn. –31 sc

Add the other chains of color to rows 7 and10, weave in ends.
