Easy to knit in just minutes and a great way to use up scraps from a larger project.

I used recycled cotton fabric yarn again which is one of my favorite materials to work with and which i have already used for many other projects.

Here we go...

(read on for the full tutorial) 

You need 5 needles for knitting in a round. Mine are size 6mm. The fabric yarn will vary in thickness since it's a recycled material and I found the 6mm fine to work with either thinner or thicker parts of the yarn. 

Some of my colors were really thin so I doubled the yarn.

Depending on the thickness of your yarn cast on between 5-7 stitches on each of the four needles. The fifth needle is your working needle.

Now knit about 6-8 rows going around and around and then cast off. You never turn your piece and knit the wrong side.

I like to place a knot between the first and the last stitch I casted off with the end of the yarn.

Then grab both ends and place two tight knots. Cut the ends or leave them for gypsy chic.

Now turn the bangle and you are done!

See how it nicely the bangle turns into a round shape just by itself? :-)

If you like you can decorate your knit bracelet with little pieces of fabric scraps. Or some beads. Just have fun with it.
