Pattern Description:

These felted bangles are knit on double pointed needles to form a small tube and then felted using a standard washing machine. The finished effect is achieved by forming the final bangle and letting it air dry for several days on a mold.


The instructions are written using double strands of worsted weight wool, however if you want to play around and blend your own colors, you can substitute 2 strands of fingering weight yarn for one strand of worsted.

It is very important that only 100% wool is used as any man-made yarns will not felt. I typically use Patton's Brand Classic Wool, Lion Brand Wool or any merino (not superwash) wool as merino has a stiffer result. However, you can use alpaca for softer results
but it won't hold the shape as well as merino.

Materials:

  • Size 10 US Set of 4 double pointed needles
  • Darning Needle
  • 30 yards of Worsted Weight Yarn
  • 2.5 inch circular form

You Will Also Need:

  • Washing Machine

I've been knitting all my life and currently spend most of my waking hours thinking about new ways to knit classic accessories. I love to spin my own yarn, learn new knitting techniques and get creative with felted wool.
