Instructions:

1.) Crochet the Sunburst Squares

Using your 3.5mm crochet hook and DK yarn, make the Sunflower Granny Square. Continue with the pattern for a total of 5 rounds. That gave me an approximately 4.75 inch square. I used the same colours but with different arrangements below:

.

After this, fasten off your yarn and weave in all your ends.

2.) How to sew the zipper and attach lining to your crochet wristlet

I have a detailed tutorial on how to attach a zipper to a crochet bag and attach lining. You should visit that post if you’re new to this for better understanding. However, for this pattern, I’ll do a quick run through.

a.) How to sew the zipper

  1. Take your zipper and pin it on the two open sides on your pouch.
Pin one side
Pin the other side
  1. Secure the zipper in place using large running stitches in bright thread and then remove the pins. Test out the zipper to make sure it opens and closes with ease.

  1. Using matching yarn, you new sew the zipper in place using smaller stitches. When you’ve done both sides, remove the large brightly coloured running stitches.

b.) How to attach lining.

  1. Measure your crochet wristlet. Add 1 extra inch to those measurements and use them to cut out your lining. Mine was 5.5 inches so I cut out a 12 by 6 inch fabric and folded it in half to give me a 6 inch piece.
  2. Secondly, make a 0.5 inch fold on the three open sides of the lining and iron it to hold it in place. Sew one of the sides closed.
  3. After that, turn you wristlet inside out. Using pins, secure the lining onto the wristlet.

  1. Lastly, sew the lining into place. Make sure the stitches you used to sew the zipper to the pouch are hidden for a neat and clean finish.

3.) Making and attaching the crochet strap

The wrist strap is made using Tunisian Crochet Knit Stitch. Tunisian crochet stitches are worked in 2 steps; forward and return pass from right to left with the number of stitches increasing on the hook during the forward pass and decreasing during the return pass.

.
  • Return pass (RetP) is worked in the same way for all stitches (rows of sts) used in this scarf as follows: yarn over and pull up just 1 loop (i.e. ch 1). (Yarn over, pull through 2 loops on your hook) twice. You should have 1 loop left on your hook.
  • Tunisian knit stitch (tks): Insert the hook from front to back between the front and back vertical bar, yarn over and pull up a loop.

Instructions:

With Dark Grey DK yarn and 3.5 mm hook,

Foundation row: Ch 3. Insert your hook in the 2nd ch, yarn over and pull up a loop, insert your hook in the next ch, yarn over and pull up a loop. You should have 3 loops on your hook. RetP.

Start working on the cord

Row 2-64: Tks. Insert your hook in both loops of the last st and pull up a loop. RetP

Insert your hook in both loops of the last st and pull up a loop. RetP

Row 65: Finish off using slip stitches. This will give you a strap that is approximately 12 inches long. If you want a longer (or shorter) strap, adjust the number of rows accordingly.

4.) Finishing your crochet wristlet:

  1. Sew the ends of the strap together to form a loop.
