DIY: Jersey Knit Bracelets

Aren't these just the cutest and funkiest bracelets you've ever seen? My sisters-in-law and I got together last night and made these jersey knit bracelets, courtesy of a Pinterest find. They're made with a simple finger-weaving method. (I totally did this kind of thing with yarn when I was younger...did anybody else do this too?) 

 As you can see, you get different widths based upon the amount of fingers you decide to use. I really love how they came out. If you want to make some yourself, just check out V and Co. She has good visuals and even a video tutorial. It's really easy and fast to do. I'm thinking I'm going to make more of these for stocking stuffers/girlfriend gifts this Christmas!

 You can see how the weave turns out to be like a "box braid" all around. Word to the wise, you'll need only one strip of 58" fabric to make a bracelet with 2 fingers. Two strips for 3 fingers. And if you have small wrists like I do, still only 2 strips for 4 fingers.

Once you make one, you'll get the hang of it and develop a feel for how much fabric you truly need to make each bracelet. I really like the look and feel of the 2 finger bracelet myself. It's not too chunky, but just right!

 And if you're feeling funky, why not weave two strips together at the same time? I kinda like how they came out (bracelet on bottom was made with only one color, as you can see). And those grey and navy fabrics were a different kind of jersey knit, so they feel a bit more "rustic" as I like to call it.

I hope you feel inspired to make these super cute and simple bracelets. I'm already wearing one today and love it!
