Who doesn’t love a handmade bracelet? This is a super-quick, super-easy and super-fun little project. You only need a small amount of yarn, so it is a great project for using up leftover scraps, and it will take you a very short time to finish. Wear one or layer them up! They are also the perfect gift to knit for all of your friends—tie them on presents as a package topper, give them for birthdays, or maybe even make matching sets for your teammates or classmates.

Size: This stretchy bracelet will fit an 8-year-old to adult wrist

Gauge: 3½ stitches per inch in stockinette stitch

Yarn: About 20 yards of Bulky weight
Needles: US size 10½ / 6.5 mm, 16-inch circular needles
Stitch marker
Ruler or tape measure
Yarn needle

Before you begin, you’ll need to know how to:
Cast on
Join stitches to work in the round
Knit stitch
Bind off
Weave in ends

Cast on 42 stitches. Make a butterfly with the end. Place a stitch marker on the first stitch.
Join to work in the round, being careful not to twist the stitches.

Knitting the Bracelet:
Knit 3 rounds.
Bind off very loosely. Make sure your stitches are loose when you are binding off, so the bracelet can stretch.
Cut the yarn, leaving a 6-inch end. Pull the end through the last stitch and gently tighten.

Finishing the Bracelet:
Place the end on a yarn needle. Weave in the end by pulling it through 5 or 6 stitch bumps on the wrong side of the fabric.
Unwind the butterfly. Place the end on a yarn needle and weave in as described above.
Trim the ends to a ¼ inch.
