I've covered plenty of crochet bracelets before. But Anette over on the Lebenslustiger blog has a fast and easy crochet bangle tutorial. She makes hers with cotton fabric yarn for coolness and comfort. I also suggest t-shirt yarn. See how to make t-shirt yarn including the continuous variety here.
This is a great design idea for those who are metal allergic. If you sew your own clothes, then making matching jewelry is possible.
What's also so great about her tutorial is she worked out how to shape the work so that the edges of the 3 row bracelet is slightly tighter for the bangle style.
She used a 12.75 mm hook but in reality, you will have to experiment with hook sizes and the number of stitches for the foundation row as your yarn might be different. If you are going for a less bulky look with thick cord or yarn, then try a suggestion from one of the commenters - she used 9 mm for the 1st and 3rd row and 10 mm for the middle row.
Heck, this one is so fast and easy, you can undo it if it is not right and crochet again!
