Solomon’s Knot Crochet Cuff Free Pattern and Video Tutorial
A few years ago Robyn shared a free Solomon’s Knot crochet cuff pattern with us for 24 Days of Quickies. It’s a great project for any time of year. Therefore, we wanted to bring it back to you in case you missed it the first time around. This is a small and easy project. You don’t need a lot of materials to make it and you can work it up quickly. It’s perfect for those hot days of summer. And yet, it gives you the chance to practice some fun things – Solomon’s Knot, which is a unique niche of crochet, and optionally the use of alternative materials like crocheting with wire and/or beads. Let’s have some fun!
What Is Solomon’s Knot?
Solomon’s Knot is a really unique crochet stitch. Some even consider it a niche of the craft, because it differs enough from the basic crochet stitches so as to feel almost like another craft entirely. And yet, if you can crochet the basic stitches, you can definitely learn how to take things up a notch by learning Solomon’s knot crochet.
Solomon’s Knot, which is also called the Love Knot and the Hail Stone, is a very openwork stitch. It’s made by working a really long chain stitch, opened up much wider than usual, and then adding on a single crochet stitch worked into the back bar of the chain stitch that you just made. You build one knot on top of the other to create a very open lace design.
So, instead of creating a foundation row made up of a chain and then a row of stitches, you just make a couple of stitches then you build your big chain loop and start adding the vertical loops atop that. It’s different from what you’re used to. However, it uses the same general movements, so you can figure it out.

Play With Materials
Have fun playing with different materials to make bracelets in different styles. You can use thread, including cotton thread and metallic thread. Alternatively, you can also crochet with wire. You can add beads around the border of the cuff or all throughout the body of the cuff, depending on how jewelry you want your cuff to be. Alternatively, you could leave the beads off for a simpler piece of jewelry, although the really do add a lot to the design. These are great gifts. Make a bunch now so that they’re ready for birthdays and holidays as the year gets busier!
