Icord bangles { Tutorial }

I am on a diy jewelry kick. I love making these quick accessories that I can wear right away.

This is a simple bangle covered with a knitted icord using leftover fingering weight yarn.

You will need:

  • Leftover fingering/sock weight yarn (variegated yarn works great)
  • A thin bangle
  • Two dpn needles
  • A pair of pliers
  • A jump ring
  • A small charm
  • Darning needle and scissors

 

Cast on 4 stitches.

Slide your stitches on the dpn to the other side.

Place your bangle behind your stitches and bring your yarn from behind the bangle.

Knit the four stitches, making sure you pull the yarn tight from behind the bangle so your stitches are even.

Repeat until you have covered the entire bangle in icord

 

 

Sew both ends together and use the pliers to attach the charm to the jump ring and then attach to your bangle.

Enjoy your new bangle.

If you don't have a bangle, knit an icord to fit your wrist, attach charm, and a clasp.

Something slightly different

 

 

 

I made a bunch of stackable wire wrapped rings today. I am so in love with them. I love stackable rings and now I finally have a set of my own that I just totally love. I used this tutorial. I had some crystals in several sizes and wire. At first I tried thicker wire but then settled on the smaller crystals with the thinnest wires. I have short fingers so the thick wire was too much. It is one of those crafts which you really need to experiment to find the best thing for you.

I love making jewelry. I love wearing it too. So this is just a perfect thing for me.
