So one day I was frogging a pair of mittens I was unsatisfied with the size of. As I got to the bottom, which was braided, I thought “Hey, this looks just like a friendship bracelet.” You know, like the ones you spent hours knotting away at in elementry/middle/junior high school (except this one is quicker). And so I bring to you a quick and fun pattern (only 6 rows other than cast on and off!) for a cute bracelet perfect for the BFF in your life. Or to keep for yourself and show off your knitting skills.

This pattern is a great way to use up and show off bits of yarn! Since it’s such a small project it’s a great way to practice techniques such as knitting in the round and colorwork, as well as learn a cute braided technique which is a great addition to any mitten!
