I used See Mi Knit's tutorial at
http://mimsie.typepad.com/knitting/2007/07/so-a-few-days-a.html
to make these bracelets using some leftover Rowan Calmer. It's a great way to make a quick present and to use up some yarn, but it's not much of a stashbuster since you need such small quantities of yarn.



Thanks for looking!

I have the same problem. I'm actually eyeing a chunk of PVC pipe left from some plumbing repairs. I'm sure it's big enough for my hand to pass through, if it's not too big I might saw off a ring and sand it nice and smooth. I have some left over red spray paint designed for plastic....

I just found that page too and knit up 2 bangles, one in moss stitch and one ribbed.  I love your cabled bracelet -- how did you do that?

Thank you, guys!  Cheesy

I think if you're worried about sizing for bangles, you could modify the idea to fit over a cuff bracelet instead.

I just found that page too and knit up 2 bangles, one in moss stitch and one ribbed.  I love your cabled bracelet -- how did you do that?

Bustergordon, for the cable, it's 6 stitches of stockinette against a background of reverse stockinette. I did a cable cross every 8 rows (I think--I'm not sure 'cause I already mailed off the bangles since they were a gift). If you're not sure how to do the cables themselves, check out paragraph 4 from this site:

I like your bangles very much.
Unfortunately I don't like to wear bangles ... but yours would be the ones I would wear if I did!
