It’s stretchy, it’s glittery, it’s jelly yarn! This quick and easy bracelet can be worked up in about 15 minutes. Stack them, share them, give them as gifts. The pattern works for any size – you can even make a really long one and wear it as a necklace. If you’re not into the jelly look, you can make this simple pattern with other yarns as well.
A note on safety – if you’re making these with the jelly yarn, avoid giving them to very young kids. The nylon material is stretchy, almost like a very stiff rubber band. If it’s too tight it can cut off circulation and if snags on something it may stretch too far and snap. If the kids are too young to have a rubber band, I probably wouldn’t give them this either.

- Yummy Yarns Jelly Yarn, Fine – shown in Raspberry Sorbet. Yardage will depend on the size of your bracelet or necklace
- Size J (6 mm) hook, or whatever hook feels comfortable to you working with this yarn.
- Yarn needle
Easy – chains and puff stitches.
Can be made to any size desired.
Gauge is not important for this project.
- ch = chain
- puff = puff stitch (see special stitches)
- sl st = slip stitch
- yo = yarn over
Puff Stitch (puff): (Yo, insert hook into indicated ch, yo and draw up a loop) 3 times. Yo and draw through all 7 loops on hook, ch 1 to close.
Note: You may want to put a stitch marker or piece of scrap yarn into your first chain so it’s easier to find later.
(Ch 3, puff in 2nd ch from hook) until desired length is achieved, sl st in first ch, fasten off.
Tie a knot with starting and ending tails, then weave in the tails. I don’t normally recommend tying knots, but with this yarn it felt like it needed it.
That’s it! It really is that easy!
I hope you enjoy the pattern. A downloadable pdf of this pattern is also available in my Craftsy store or on Ravelry, for a $1 fee. The fee for the pdf format is to offset the advertising revenue lost when you print or download the pattern rather than viewing it online.
