Basicaly I fingernitted bells from spotlight into the braclet. I usally use them as anklets so that when I walk,run or (very rarly)dance I make a nice dinging noise. I can do a how to on it, If anyone wants me to. Just post a comment.

  • How to make an anklet. Belled Braclets Or Anklets - Step 1
    Step 1

    You need to about two metres of string or wool. if your're using anything particaly thin you will need to cut a longer piece. At one end make a loop that can fit loosly around your finger. If you find this hard try tying it around a pencil. A simple double knot works fine.

    Then put the loop made on your finger (because this is basicaly fingernitting)

I would just like to add that you can easly replace the bells with beads. Also if you want to do just plain fingernitting you don't have to cut a piece of string. You can just knit straight from the ball (like with normal knitting). I hope all twelve steps are showing now. Please tell me if they aren't.
