Turning Scarf Ideas Into Bracelets

I’ve been making bracelets, some of which use techniques included in Knitting New Scarves. Here’s Looped, a free bracelet pattern which uses the interlocking technique used in the Carumboa scarf.

The Shag scarf also works up great as a little bracelet. I used fewer stitches and much smaller needles than for the scarf, but the structure is the same as the pattern in the book.

The bracelet (shown below) looks similar to the Flapper scarf, but is worked with one continuous yarn rather than in joined pieces. It was fun to figure out how to eliminate multiple cast-ons and extra-ends that need to be woven in.
