Use small amounts of yarn scraps to crochet this self-buttoning bracelet. The rainbow bracelets were made with two color sample sets and less than half of one Lotus Snack ball (available as a kit).

A popular crochet stitch, the "V-stitch", makes a slim column that you then edge with simple stitches in a contrasting color. It’s easy to fine-tune the final size of the bracelet; you could easily make a hairband or belt length with more yarn. 

Crochet a button and loop clasp as you go, or you can opt to sew a button on later. 

Skill Level: Easy/IntermediateSkill level shifts closer to Easy if you sew on a button instead of crocheting one. Metal free (no experience with jewelry findings is required). UK and Australian equivalents for American measurements, yarn weights, and stitch terms are in brackets.
