Hi everybody! It’s Sunday and sunny outside. So for Groundhog Day it could mean, that Phil will see it’s shadow. Awwwww! I’m counting the days until sping will appear and in that mood I made some knitted bracelets in bright spring colours.
It’s a quick project and you can do some upcycling too. I found some old bracelets in my jewel box, that don’t fit my taste anymore. So I gave them a new look with a knitted yarn cover.
some leftover yarn in bright colours
3-4 mm knitting needles
It’s not necessary to work an exact gauge, because it depends on the size of your bracelet and the yarn you use.
The pattern I used is the big seed stitch. It is worked to a lenght to fit the bracelet. For the cast-on just make sure, that it fits around the inside of the braclet, slightly streched. For the big bracelet I used 16 stitches and for the small one I used 10. Just try what fits with your yarn and make sure that you have an even number of stitches.
row 1: knit 1, purl 1, continue to end
row 2: knit 1, purl 1, continue to end
row 3: purl 1, knit 1, continue to end
row 4: purl 1, knit 1, continue to end
Repeat row 1-4 until the strip fits around the outside but make sure that it’s slighly streched here too. Now cast off as the stitches appear.
Fo finish, sew the cast-on and cast-off edges together using matress stitch. Then place it around the bracelet. Sew the row ends together with matress stitch too. The seam line should be placed on he inside of the bracelet. It’s finished! Have fun!
