Materials Needed
DMC Perle 8 Cotton in Color #798
1 empty opaque white empty quart milk jug cleaned and dried.
1 plastic outer wrap from a spool of beading thread

(Cousin, Fashion Cord, nylon coated beading wire package)

Tools Needed
Pair of Sharp scissors
¼" paper punch
1/8" paper punch
Size 6 Steel crochet Hook
Tapestry Needle for weaving in ends

Yarn Thickness: 8thread
Gauge: 11sc = 1"
Finished Size: 2½" diam x ¾" wide
Skill Level: Intermediate

Instructions
    Prepare plastic circles. You will need to make a total of 84 circles with holes in them.
    NOTE it is ok if the little holes are off center. It looks better on the bracelet that way.
  1. Remove the labels from the milk jug
  2. Cut out the flat parts of the white milk
  3. Using your 1/8" punch, punch a bunch of holes about 3/8" apart in a straight line.
  4. Using your ¼" punch, punch over the 1/8" holes you just made.

  5. This will take awhile to punch all of the circles out. It is a good task to do while watching TV. Set these aside in a little dish. I used an empty dry drink mix cup that came from the inside of a Crystal Light container.

Outside of Bracelet ROW 1: Ch10. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch3, turn.

ROW 2: Sk first sc. Dc in each st across. Ch1, turn.

ROW 3: Sc in first dc. *Insert hook in your next stitch, put a circle on the hook, yo, pull through circle and stitch, yo pull through lps on hook. Sc in next dc. (see note) Repeat from * 3 times more. Ch3, turn.

NOTE: Basically what you are doing is working sc stitches all the way across but you are putting the plastic circles in 4 of the sc stitches on each sc row.

ROW 4-43: Repeat ROWs 2 & 3. At the end of ROW 43, ch1, turn.

ROW 44: Sc in each st across. Fasten off and weave ends into back of work.
