So I asked my Facebook fans (www.facebook.com/FreaksInYarn) if they’d be interested in a freebie pattern to crochet a bracelet for their fit bits…the answer was YES! It is a very, very simple pattern and works up quickly. It’s so basic, I decided to just throw it in my blog for you :-) Keep in mind I have the Fitbit Flex.
BASIC FITBIT FLEX WRIST BAND
-Sport Weight yarn in any color
Row 1: Ch 13, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across remaining sts. (12)
Row 2-31: Ch 1, turn and sc across. (12)
Now check to make sure it wraps around your wrist with the edges just meeting. If need be, add or subract a couple rows. I have fairly small wrists, but keep in mind, it will have some stretch. If you are making this for your ankle, you will probably have to add several more rows.
Once you have the right length, line both ends up, ch 1 and sc them together all the way across. Finish off and weave in your ends. Turn it inside out so the seam is on the inside, then move onto the pocket.
-Sport Weight Yarn in same or contrasting color
Row 1: Ch 6, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across remaining sts. (5)
Row 2-9: Ch 1, turn and sc across. (5)
Finish off leaving a long tail for sewing. Position the pocket on the front of the band, centered in the middle, your fit bit will lay in there horizontally. Sew down the side, bottom, and other side. When you get to the top, sew only about a 3rd, leave a 1/2″ opening, weave your tail to the the last 3rd of the top and sew that closed too. I went around a second time just to be safe. Weave in your ends and you’re done.
I know it’s kind of hard to see the pocket because I did mine all black. When you wear it, make sure the small opening is facing up. You will slide the bit in vertically and just wiggle it down into the opening till it’s laying horizontally. I wore mine all day and it was so much more comfortable than the regular bracelet. I made mine into an anklet as I’m often carrying a toddler around.
I will be experimenting some more fit bit patterns so stay tuned. Also, please let me know how this pattern works for you! I love feedback and pics from my fans.
