~ bow wrist cuff ~

I was looking around Pinterest a couple of days ago, and came across a black leather wrist cuff.  It looked very pretty so I decided to crochet one.  I think maybe that these are for the younger ladies - I don't think this Grandma could pull off this look.  :)
  (this is my mannequins arm, not mine)
- small amount 4-ply worsted weight acrylic
- J hook
- two 4mm beads or shank buttons
- small amount size 10 thread
Size:  my wrist measures 6", but the wrist cuff measures 8" long and it fits
Note:  I crochet tight, so you may need to adjust the size of your crochet hook
Row 1:  Ch 10, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each remaining ch.  Ch 1, turn.  (9 sc)
Row 2:  Sc in each sc across.  Ch 1, turn.
Row 3:  (sc, dc) in 1st sc.  *skip next sc, (sc, dc) in next sc.  Repeat from * 3 more times.  Turn.
Rows 4 - 24:  Skip 1st dc, (sc, dc) in next sc.  *skip next dc, (sc, dc) in next sc.  Repeat from * across.  Turn.
Row 25:  Ch 1, skip 1st dc.  Sc in next 2 sts, ch 1, skip next st, sc in next 3 sts, ch 1, skip next st, sc in last 2 sts.  Ch 1, turn.
Row 26:  Sc in each sc and ch-1 space across.  End off.
Gather the sides of Rows 13 & 14 together and wrap a long length of yarn around tightly.  Tie ends together in a knot and weave the end in.
With the size 10 thread, sew the beads or buttons between Rows 1 & 2 to match up with the ch-1 spaces of Row 25.
