This pretty vintage crochet pattern comes from an American Thread Star Book No. 209 titled Let’s Crochet, Beginner’s Stitches. A Bangle Jacket perfect for a New Year’s Eve party.
You create the jacket using single crochet stitches with a gauge of 3 sc = 1 inch. Once you crochet the sides and arms separately they are sewn together with yarn and single crochet stitches.
Yarn for this project is Dawn Knitting Worsted or Dawn Sayelle. The Knitting Worsted is 100% wool while the Sayelle is a 100% Acrylic yarn. It came in 100 gram or 215 yard skeins. A substitute would be Bernat Satin Yarn Silk or Mary Maxim Starlette Yarn. Both of these yarns come in 100 gram skeins.
Bangles, Sequins or Paillettes
I finally found some beautiful bangles after changing my search word to sequins. These are actually named Crystal Rainbow Iris. Similar to those required in the pattern. They are 20mm round paillettes measuring almost an inch. The instructions say to insert the bangles with a hook, but the bangles I found may not have a big enough hole for a crochet hook and may need to be sewn on with a needle.
