I am always in search of creative fidget toys for my son, and love incorporating my craft into these projects. I stumbled upon a post on social media showing a small knit bracelet tube with a marble, and have since been making them for my son and other family and friends. A few knitters requested I write directions for how I make the bracelets, so here they are! These simple bracelets are suitable for children and adults. Directions are included for both fingering and DK weight yarns. Enjoy!

Each bracelet uses approximately 4-6 g of fingering or DK weight yarn. This is a great project to use up yarn scraps leftover from another project.
Customizable- samples shown are approximately 1” (2.5 cm) measured across, and 1” (2.5 cm) longer than wrist.
