These bracelets are a clever way to use up small amounts of yarn and old, chain necklaces. It requires some basic knitting knowledge (If anyone is interested in learning how to knit, I made a video showing the basics) 

  • Yarn
  • Size 8 knitting needles
  • Yarn needle
  • Chains (broken chain necklaces are perfect for this) 

    [Use the following pattern to knit the rectangles: Cast on 12 stitches. Work in stockinette stitch for 5 inches. Bind off]
    [Roll the rectangle up]
    [Using the ends of the yarn sew the tube closed]
    [Attach the chain to one side.  Use a piece of thread to connect the chain to the needle and sew through the other side of the tube]
    [I found it easiest to sew the chain while wearing the bracelet. This ensures a proper fit. The bracelet has no closure- it rolls on and off your wrist. You want it to be fitted, but not tight]
    [Voilà! The finished bracelets]
