Knitting up these bangles is highly satisfying. Not only are they super fast to make, they require mere skerricks of your treasured left over yarn. I made this bevy of bangles in one evening. I think they look great in groups of 3, they stack up pretty nicely in higher numbers too……I found it to be slightly addictive making these. Which is great cos I think they make a great gift idea as well as a glamorous accessory for your favorite outfit.

Did I mention these are easy to make? It’s true, I promise! They are worked in the round, if you haven’t done that before then please don’t be scared off, I couldn’t think of a better project to practice working in the round on. Beginner instructions for working in the round are not included in these directions, however a quick you tube search will see you an expert in this in no time.
PATTERN NOTES: The bangles are worked in a tight gauge, causing the stockinette stitch to roll nicely.
YARN: 15 yards/ DK/8ply yarn for a single bangle. Yarn used for the samples : Madelinetosh, DK Twist (100% merino, 250yds/229m) In the following colorways: Antler, Button Jar Blue, Nassau Blue, Charcoal and Neon Peach.
NEEDLES: 3.25mm/US 3 DPNs or circs for preferred working in the round method, or size required to obtain gauge.
NOTIONS: Darning needle
GAUGE: 6 stitches = 1″ in stockinette in the round.
Finished inner circumference measurement: S 8″/20.3cm, [M 8.5"/21.6cm, L 9"/22.9cm]
Cast on 48[51/56] stitches
Knit the first round spreading stitches evenly across DPNs. Join to work in the round and continue to knit until the work measures 1.25″/3.2cm.
Cast off and weave in the ends.
Twist the bangle so the cast on and bound off edges face the inside. Give it a little stretch to pull into shape.
Try it on and make another.
I’d love to see your pile of bangles, if you make a project page on Ravelry I’ll be able to see them there.
