Using Scraps: Jersey Finger Knit Bracelet


I found this great idea from V and Co. to make a cute bracelet from strips of knit fabric. What a perfect way to use up my ever growing pile of jersey fabric scraps!

V and Co. gives plenty of instructions, even a finger knitting video if you've never done it before or if you need a refresher.

I made my bracelet with the two finger method.

My first bracelet was too big (I forgot the key component of this fabric - it stretches!) so I made a second, smaller bracelet.


Vanessa suggests you tie together three 1" by 58" strips but I managed to only use one strip for my smaller bracelet and about 1 and 1/4th strips for the first, bigger bracelet. Keep in mind, if you do a three or four finger weave you will obviously use more fabric.


Cute and summery - and so easy to make, too!

  1. Ah, finger knitting. I remember doing this in elementary school with yarn. You just kept going and going, now ending up with anything particular.

  3. helena, i love how the effect looks different depending on the materials you use. you really can't get away from the elementary school style with yarn but I like how the jersey looks.

    montanachic, thanks, and it's so easy to do. I'm sure your daughter would have fun making it.

  4. If I used rope instead, would this be the same weave as those white fisherman bracelets they sell at coastal gift shops?

  5. I do agree with all of the ideas you have offered
    on your post. They're very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for novices. Could you please prolong them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

  9. I do not drop many responses, but i did a few searching and wound up here "Using Scraps: Jersey Finger Knit Bracelet".
    And I do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it appear like a few of these remarks come across like coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at other social sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you list of the complete urls of your communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  12. First of all I would like to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I've had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!
