Lazy Sunday Project

I had half a skein of Noro Daria Multi sitting in my yarn stash, so today I got it out and whipped up a little cuff/bracelet in, literally, an hour. I forget how fast crochet is!

Lazy Sunday Cuff

-size G crochet hook (or size needed to obtain gauge)
-25 grams Noro Daria Multi
-tapestry needle
-button or bead for closure
-needle and thread
-hot glue/glue stick (optional)

Gauge: 3.5 sts/inch in single crochet.

Chain 8.
Work in single crochet until piece measures about 7.5 inches.
Slip 4 stitches, chain 6, slip 4 stitches.
Cut yarn. Weave in ends.
Sew on button.
Use button and the loop formed by 6 chain stitches to close the cuff.

Optional step:
Use a dot of hot glue or a glue stick on the ends, after you have woven them in. Daria is a plain cord wrapped with the shiny, silky exterior, and this tends to unravel/unspool if left to its own devices!
