DIY Color Block Bracelets with Angora Yarn

DIY Color Block Angora Bracelets | Henry HappenedI love going into yarn stores even though, to be honest, I have no patience for knitting. There’s so much color and texture – and I’m sure they love people who touch everything! And so many things I could make…. Nashville has this super cute knitting store called Haus of Yarn that I recently discovered. I walked in and found the most amazing yarn ever – cashmere. Wow. Suddenly I had visions of making sweaters, hats and mittens – until I saw the price. Yowza!

But right next to it was the 2nd most amazing yarn ever. Angora! It’s soft and fuzzy too, yet way more affordable. Sadly the patience for sweaters, hats and mittens is not for sale. Good news is that you can make angora color block bracelets instead.

1. Cut and long piece of yarn and start wrapping the bangle. You can dab a bit of glue to hold the first end in place or just wrap over it with the yarn.

2. Wrap the yarn tightly to cover the bangle underneath. When you’re ready to change colors snip the yarn and glue the end. Start the new color over the end piece to cover it.

    You might want to check the source of any angora products. The harvesting of angora fur overseas is brutal and horrific.
