I love bracelets and I’m always on the hunt for a new one. But with the cold weather outside, I haven’t been wearing one, not liking the chill that I feel when the bracelet gets cold against my skin. The solution? A knitted bracelet!
Here’s what you need:
1. Measure your wrist and add one inch, this will be your knit length.
2. Cast on 10 sts. Knit as follows
row 1 – K1 P1 across
row 2 – K1P1 across
row 3 – P1K1 across
row 4 – P1K1 across
Repeat this pattern until you are one inch from your length (this is a double, vertical seed stitch)
Now make a buttonhole:
Knit in pattern for 3 sts. Without knitting, cast off 4 sts. Slip the last active stitch to the other needle and use it to make 4 new stitches. Finish knitting in pattern. Turn piece and continue to knit in pattern for 3 more rows. Cast off in pattern.
3. Try on your bracelet and mark where your button needs to be. Stitch into place and try it on!
