My Free Patterns

Idle Hands

I ordered some wool and a pattern to make myself a sweater, then ordered more wool to make short sleeve cardigans for the girls.  Well, my wool is on back order, and their pattern is on back order, so I'm stuck waiting for my projects to arrive!  Trying to keep busy, I've been working on little projects.

I've been making bracelets!!


The pattern I used is here.  I followed it exactly except skipped one repeat because I have an absurdly small wrist.  I like it.  I want to make another one with three small buttons instead of two, to see if I can keep it from curling up so much.

Then I made a couple of button bracelets for the girls.  They wanted the huge yellow button on the end, which threw off my pink and white design.  Whatever makes them happy though.

Next, I made a plain old stocking stitch cuff with garter stitch border.  Just sort of made it up as I went along.  

After that I made some Cable Braid Bracelets, which I love!

My favorite!

It has been great experimenting with different yarn and buttons.  I might work up a couple more and list them in my Etsy shop.  Accessories for spring!


  1. Your cable bracelets look like the rope fisherman's bracelets that they sell in Provincetown! Very cute.

  2. Love your bracelets, especially the braided one. I bought a rope one in Bar Harbor a few years ago, but it would be nice to have a softer one. Any chance you can give us a pattern? (I'm a pretty basic knitter!)


I love comments almost more than chocolate. Now that is saying something.
