Knit Cuff Bracelets are as easy to come by as the nearest old sweater and they are lovely handmade gifts that don’t require you to know a a single thing about knitting or crocheting.  They are quick, budget-friendly and BEAUTIFUL.  You can create a variety of different looks — something for everyone!

Cut away the cuffs.

Adjust the fit as needed.

Add stitching, appliques, beads, buttons or other embellishments

Two delightful pieces of jewelry from one sweater!  For that extra special touch, grab some glass hands if you’re ever at an antique store or flea market…they’re usually priced between $5 and $10 and are perfect to include with your handmade jewelry…Makes for a pretty sweet package and thoughtful presentation. 

Tell the ‘giftee’ to wear proudly!

And just for fun….those leftover sleeve bits can be turned into the cutest plush toys for little ones!….

Cheers to the 101 things we can do with an old sweater!

    If you felt the rest of the sweater if it’s wool you can then trace your feet, stitch around the outline, cut them out and you’ll have some warm insoles for those winter or rain boots.
