Braided Cable Bracelet
Free Knit Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot
This braided cable bracelet is a fun and quick accessory, and a great way to practice cables. In addition to the written pattern, there are lots of process photos and video! It can be made with a seam, or it can be grafted together using the Kitchener stitch to make a continuous bracelet. You can even make it really long to make a headband!!
1 to 3 inches wide, depending on yarn, and any length you need.
Just about any DK or larger yarn, not much is needed.
Use needles about one size larger than suggested by your yarn, plus you will need one cable needle (or an extra double pointed needle) as well.
Doesn’t really matter!
Stitches and Skills used:
k ~ knit
p ~ purl
pco ~ provisional cast on *optional*
st(s) ~ stitch(es)
This pattern uses a provisional cast on and Kitchener stitch to make it appear seamless. If you prefer, you can use another cast on method, and bind off at the end, then just seam the bracelet together when it is the proper length, if you do not mind a seam.
The photos of in this pattern are labeled with the yarn and needle info for each sample, in case you want to duplicate any of them.
