I love bangles. I made some recently using a plastic ring (made from cutting up cheap belts and glueing at one side) and sticking buttons on, but the buttons started to fall off so I had to think of something else.
These are very simple to make, and you can use up left-over bits of yarn. And you can add embellishments if you want. I sewed a button onto the last one I made, and dabbed it with a bit of clear nail polish for reinforcement.
I think the pics are self-explanatory? I made enough chains to go round the bangle and then did 1 extra. I used Vinni’s DK cotton Nikkim and a 3mm hook, and worked in rows of dc or htr until the length was sufficient to wrap over the bangle and stitch together. I did a sort of mini puff stitch in the turquoise one in the top picture.
I’d love to see your versions of this, if you make some. Send me a pic :-)
