Knitted wrist bands are fun to make. The creation of these beautiful bands takes only a short amount of time. Pick your materials carefully for optimal success. Consider the type of yarn when making a wrist band. Fun fur or bulky yarns will make the project come out as a completely different object. Pick yarns with some stretch included in the fiber. That makes it easy to work with. The band will then fit a larger wrist with no difficulty. Choose items that will be fun for you. Get to work creating your next masterpiece.
Things You'll Need
- Size 7 US knitting needles
- Crochet hook
- Measuring tape
Measure wrist circumference and add an inch to the measurement.
Cast 12 stitches onto your knitting needle. Knit each row until the length is the same as the total wrist measurement. Bind off stitches, leaving a length of yarn that equals 6 inches.
Fold the wrist band in half so it fits your wrist. Hold the ends together. Use the crochet hook to pull the extra yarn length through both ends.
Tie a knot at one corner to connect the ends together. Continue to pull the yarn through the edges, making sure to keep the seam smooth. Knot the final corner to connect. Weave any excess yarn back through the connection. Turn the woven side inward for a finished look.
Tips & Warnings
- If yarn rolls at side edges, iron flat.
- Fun Fur or textured yarns are great for this project.
- When ironing, make sure to use the correct setting.
- Be careful of allergens when purchasing yarns. Read all labels.
