Daria Bracelet




I knit something! Three somethings actually, cute little bracelets using Noro's Daria Multi yarn. I picked up this yarn a couple of weeks ago on a whim, mostly because I looooved the color. It's sort of a rayon cord yarn that just begs to be knit into i-cord. Really, begs.


The bracelets are super easy to knit and make great little gifts, you can get a bunch out of one skein. The pattern is available in pdf form here. Or you can scroll down and get it here on the blog.

Daria Bracelet





Materials:

Yarn: 1 skein of Noro Daria Multi (55% cotton-45% rayon / 50 meters). Shown in color #26.

Needles: 2 US size 6 (4.25mm) dpns

Gauge: Not important, just use a needle size that makes fabric that you like.

Notions: Tapestry needle, clasp.

Instructions:

· Cast on 3 stitches, making sure to leave about a 10” tail.

· Work i-cord for desired length. For me, that was about 6 inches.

· Bind off, leaving a 10” tail.

· With your fingers, slide one end of the clasp down the tail from the bind off edge. Thread the yarn through a tapestry needle and weave into the i-cord to secure the end.





· Repeat for the other side of the bracelet using the other piece of the clasp.

· Enjoy!

That is really cute!

knitty, witty, woo ( Tracey ). said...

I have just made one with some hand dyed, hand spun alpaca I had left from making some fingerless mitts.
Great for using up leftover bits of yarn.

what a cool idea. I-cords are sweet. This is an ultimate accessory for a knitter :) I will totally be making some :)

Ditto - totally cute idea. I don't like most knitted jewelry (looks like old lady stuff, not that there's anything wrong with that), but I really LOVE how you've done these!

great project for finger-knitting, thanks!

Nancy did it - Queridas said...

I found your post and did 3 of my own! Thanks for the inspiration.

I had no idea what to do with the Noro daria yarn, but I knew that I liked it.

Thanks a lot for the simple pattern. I love the yarn soo much. Really there's nothing else like it and the bracelets are so unique. Also, it's knitted? How cool.

These are lovely. I like the way the light shines off the silky cord and the catch makes a great finishing touch. I might be a crocheter, but I wonder if I can find my needles?

is there another yarn you recommend since Noro Daria yarn is discontinued? I love the look of the yarn you used but haven't found anything similar yet. thanks!
