Free Tutorial - Knitted child's bracelet

During the autumn I was asked by one of my friends if I could possible knit a chunky bracelet for her youngest daughter. 

I have finally got round to writing up the process for you all.

For this project you will need 

1 wooden bracelet with a diameter of approx 88mm 

and a dark wooden button
Small quantity of cream cotton yarn


Step 1. With cream cotton and appropriate sized knitting needles (see ball band) Cast on enough stitches to make the width of knitted item twice the width of the bangle. For the bangles I used  , the width was 23mm , so my knitting was 46mm using 4mm needles.

Step 2. Knit in Moss stitch
Row 1 K1, P1, K1 , P1 .............K1
Row 2 Same as Row 1

Repeat these 2 rows until the length of the knitting measures the circumference of the bangle. Check this out by wrapping the knitting round the bangle before you do the final cast off.

Step 3 Cast off

You should end up with a cream band , approx 88mm x 46 mm.

Step 4. Sew button on to cream band in a central position.

Step 5. Sew 2 narrow ends of band together

Step 6. Place band around wood bangle and sew in place , align stitches to be in the  middle of the inside of the bangle.

Step 7. Sew in any ends.

Hope you will enjoy making this child's bracelet. 

Remember, if you make any of these lovely bracelets , then send photos to TheFeminineTouch and I will feature them on facebook or in my blog (or both).
Please feel to make as many of these as you like for personal use, but I would ask that you don't sell the finished items. Please do not reproduce any or all of the tutorial, without linking back to here.
