Tutorial: plastic bangle refashionAugust 14, 2009
From this to this –
Ever wondered what to do with those old plastic bangles?
I used 8ply wool and 4mm needles and cast on 46 stitches and knit about 14 rows – you will need to check your tension and see what will work with the bangle you have.
Once you have your ‘band’ of knitting – cast off loosely – and fold it around your bangle and whipstitch in place.
When you have sewn around the top of the bangle – sew up the ends as shown and tie off securely.
Have fun experimenting with different stitches and wools AND you get to use up all those little bits and pieces….you’ll be surprised how toasty these are for cooler days OR use some summery cotton for the warmer ones…. Enjoy!
***PS*** Pop back for a look next week – I feel a giveaway coming on…
