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:

Bulky weight wool yarn

Size 10 knitting needles

Fabric scissors

Large button

Fabric measuring tape

Yarn needle

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!
